lyrics

Long as I remember I was a curious soul
So I lit out down the road
I left from Memphis reckon 'round last year
to see where this old highway goes

Mississippi came and Mississippi went and I ain't got nothing to show
Going down to Louisiana so my blue eyes see
How far this old highway goes

Well hummingbirds make a whole lot of buzz
But it don't mean nothing, no
I don't pay no mind to their hummingbird song
Just keep a walking this open road

With every new step I get further still
From all the good things that I've known
You see, good things won't keep me satisfied
When there's before me this open road

So come along with me far as you like
But don't expect for me to slow
See we won't make it long unless you're curious as me
To see where this old highway goes
