lyrics

Well, I heard tell of a woman out there with tight blue jeans and long black hair
She’ll come to play but she won’t stay and it always brings ‘em down
Some folks say they’ll come a day when she’ll settle in some old town
But it’s best you know that it’s a long, long road, she ain’t gonna come around

Sixty thousand miles of blacktop
Countless broken hearts between
Winding lines of white that don’t stop
Livin’ the life of the Highway Queen
She’s a siren leaves you pinin’, haunts your mind like a melody
If you can tie her down, you can bottle lightnin’
But the Highway Queen don’t need no king

Well one or two they might have broken through, they might have nearly roped her in
But a fire like that is far too wild, it’s gonna burn and burn again
Seasons fade and so does the pain, it blows away like a tumbleweed
You can’t blame a girl for loving this old world, she can’t help that she’s a Highway Queen

Sixty thousand miles of blacktop
Countless broken hearts between
Winding lines of white that don’t stop
Livin’ the life of the Highway Queen
She’s a siren leaves you pinin’, haunts your mind like a melody
If you can tie her down, you can bottle lightnin’
But the Highway Queen don’t need no king
Highway Queen don’t need no king

Well, miles and miles she keeps on rollin’
Place your bets if you ain’t foldin’
Miles and miles no sign of slowin’
It ain’t who she loves, it’s who she’s holdin’

Sixty thousand miles of blacktop
Countless broken hearts between
Winding lines of white that don’t stop
Livin’ the life of the Highway Queen
She’s a siren leaves you pinin’, haunts your mind like a melody
If you can tie her down, you can bottle lightnin’
But the Highway Queen don’t need no king
Highway Queen don’t need no king
Highway Queen don’t need no king

Well, miles and miles she keeps on rollin’
Place your bets if you ain’t foldin’
Miles and miles no sign of slowin’
It ain’t who she loves, it’s who she’s holdin’
