WEST VIRGINIA HITCHHIKER

The switchback roads got me movin’ slow again

And I’ve been drivin’ since the mornin’ lost its shade

Our summer nights, well they fell to autumn rain

It makes you wonder how anything can stay

 

Don’t let the wind tell you which way to go

‘Cause tonight it’s blowin’ cold

Look around, said is this the way you want it baby?

I hear you singin’ nice and slow

 

You said you work all night and you sleep around all day

But you’re only livin’ for the bottle that you earn

Does it burn like the feeling of the sands

Through your fingers, that’s never to return?

 

Don’t let the wind tell you which way to go

‘Cause tonight it’s blowin’ cold

Look around, said is this the way you want it baby?

I hear you singin’ nice and slow

 

Late in the night you asked if we were friends

And I don’t think so, but sometimes it’s hard to know

I missed a turn in the blackness and the rain

But I will take you as far as you wanna go

 

Don’t let the wind tell you which way to go

‘Cause tonight it’s blowin’ cold

Look around, said is this the way you want it baby?

I hear you singin' nice and slow
