Roll Me Away

Took a look down a westbound road
Right away I made my choice
Headed out to my big two-wheeler
I was tired of my own voice
Took a bead on the northern plains
And just rolled that power on

Twelve hours out of Mackinaw city
Stopped in a bar to have a brew
Met a girl and we had a few drinks
And I told her what I'd decided to do
She looked out the window a long, long moment
Then she looked into my eyes
She didn't have to say a thing
I knew what she was thinking

Roll, roll me away
Won't you roll me away tonight
I too am lost, I feel double-crossed
And I'm sick of what's wrong and what's right
We never even said a word
We just walked out and got on that bike
And we rolled
And we rolled clean out of sight

We rolled across the high plains
Deep into the mountains
Felt so good to me
Finally feeling free

Somewhere along a high road
The air began to turn cold
She said she missed her home
I headed on alone

Stood alone on a mountain top
Staring out at the great divide
I could go east, I could go west
It was all up to me to decide
Just then I saw a young hawk flying
And my soul begin to rise
And pretty soon
My heart was singing

Roll, roll me away
I'm gonna roll me away tonight
Gotta keep rolling, gotta keep riding
Keep searching 'til I find what's right
And as the sunset faded
I spoke to the faintest first starlight
And I said next time
Next time
We'll get it right

Roll me away
Roll me away
Roll me away
