Highway Junkies

I was born on blacktop
backseat of a rag top
dad said "it's a short hop"
"too late" said mom "the kid's popped"
I'm a highway junkie
you're a highway junkie
we're all highway junkies
we got asphalt in our veins

gov'ment gave a big grant
to open up an auto plant
now I'm just a worker ant
I'd like to stop but I can't
I'm a highway junkie
hooked on steady pay
'cause I'm paying off my car loan
just to get to work each day

now I got a four door
palm sweat on my four-floor
heavy metal 4x4
and room enough for four more
but we highway junkies
we always ride alone
we're not giving over our space
to satisfy your jones

up each day at five to
get java from a drive through
just tryin' to survive through
that white-line jumpin' jive crew
we're all highway junkies
we got asphalt in our veins
we're all highway junkies
we got asphalt for brains
