This song is from the Truckers breakthrough album The Southern Rock Opera. It was written and sang by Mike Cooley. Intro D G D G D G Don't know why they even bother putting this highway on the map D G Everybody that's ever been on it knows exactly where they're at A Hells on both ends of it G And no where's in between D G This highway's mean D G Seems like it's always hot down here, no matter when you come D G It's the kind of heat that holds you like a mama holds her son A G Tight when he tries to walk, even tighter if he runs A It's a mean old dusty highway G A But it's the only one that'll get you there Bm G That'll get you there Bm Mean old highway G D Bm Stuck to the ground in Mississippi G D It's the one'll set me free G It's the same one that I see A G Being ripped up off the ground and wrapped around me A D Don't let it fool you this highway's mean D G I don't need a map to tell me where I am today D G This feeling that I have has always led the way A Down here, you're running from a broken heart G D Or to a heart that you have to break on this mean old highway
