The Great Plains

 

In a red vinyl booth at another  truckstop
Like me it's fading with time
I light up a cigarette and blow out the smoke
Then I think back to when she was mine

 

I know she's out there on the great plains tonight
Out where the stars burn so bright 
You know I would, if I only could
Lay down beside her tonight

 

We said goodbye in a booth just like this
To tell the truth the fault was mine
She plead for me to stay with tears in her eyes
But I chose to chase that long white line

 

I know she's out there on the great plains tonight
Out where the stars burn so bright 
You know I would, if I only could
Lay down beside her tonight

 

There's not enough miles to ease a heartache
And you can't drive away the pain
The road's an unforgiving mistress
You give her all your love in vain

 

I know she's out there on the great plains tonight
Out where the stars burn so bright 
You know I would, if I only could
Lay down beside her tonight
And I'd hold her in my arms until I die
