Recorded by Ricky Van Shelton
written by Charlie Majors

I've got the radio blasting I've got the windows rolled down
D7 G
And I'm cruising these backroads on the outskirts of town

I can feel the wind a-blowing hear the big engines whine
D7 G
When I'm cruising these backroads all my troubles are behind

D7 G
Well when I woke up this morning well I took me a look outside
D7 G
It was plain to see it was one of those days tailor-made for taking a ride
So I went downstairs and cleared my head with coffee and cigarettes
D7 G
And when it hit me right there then my mind was set

D7 G
Well I phoned work and told'em they're going to be a man short today
D7 G
I got the sunny day blues there's only one thing that makes them go away
So I went out and I climbed in to my big old Chevrolet
C D7
And with a turn of the key and a cloud of dust I was on my way

Repeat #1

D7 G
Well maybe I did maybe I didn't go and lose my job today
D7 G
But you can take my cares take my worries and blow them all away
For there comes a time in any man's life when he's got to break free
C D7
I got four good wheels and an endless road stretched out in front of me
