Lyrics

US 50

Written By: John Fries

Got the wheel between your hands, drive till the sun is gone
Dreams to carry you from the night time to the morning
Somehow the open road doesn't feel so alone this time
This lonely stretch of US 50 starts to feel like hope

At a truck stop past St Louis I stopped to call you
Said sorry baby I know late, just need to hear your voice
With a broken hearted tone she answered the phone
And the words she said to me stay with me to today

You know I miss you more than ever, but you dreams were never mine
You know it's just to hard to handle
We were alone all this time

To leave the life we know, to somehow let it go
Before your dreams they fade away
To leave it all behind, for some peice of mind
Learn to love again someday

Got the wheel between your hands, drive till the sun is gone
Dreams to carry you from the night time till the morning
Somehow the open road doesn't feel so alone this time
This lonely stretch of US 50 starts to feel like hope

You know I miss you baby more than you'll ever know
You know you darling but know I had to go
You know I miss you baby more than you'll ever know
You know I miss you darling but know that I had to go

Traveling Home

Written By: John Fries

80 miles an hour, two more days to go I'm traveling home.
Been so long since I have seen you, still need to near your glow.

30 days that I'e been out here living life out on the open road.
Wheels going round & round won't give up until the day I'm home.

Traveling day and night, till I can be in your arms again.
I'd swim the seven seas fly above the tallest trees.

No, nothing can stand in the way, not sleet or show or pouring rain.
Your love is the only thing that's ever made me right.

On a mountain high I see your face inside the clouds.
But in an instant the winter wind blows you far away from me.
Oh will I hold you in my arms again?
Please don't forget me, if I never make it home.
I'm trying so hard, to find you.
But I'm all alone...

80 miles an hour, two more days to go I'm traveling home.
Been so long since I have seen you, still need to near your glow.

30 days that I'e been out here living life out on the open road.
Wheels going round & round won't give up until the day I'm home.
