Song title: Light of day


Light of day

Well I’ve been out of the woods for six days and nights now
I’m a little hot wired and I’m feeling alright now
I got some money in my pocket and I won’t need a ride now
I got a big cherry car and my baby by my side now

Chorus:
Well I’m a little hot-wired but I’m feeling ok
And I got a little lost along the way
And I’m just around the corner from the light of day
Just around the corner from the light of day

Well driving 500 miles got 100 to go, yeah
I’ve got rock and roll music on the radio
I’ve got a brother on the rig who’s from the Gulf Coast
He said the girls down there are really the most, yeah

(Chorus)

Well I got thrown out of work on the Kokomo
Don’t ask me what I’m doing cause I don’t know
He wasn’t joking when he wrote me that letter
Things can’t get worse so they got to get better
