about

This song was inspired by a song title from T.C Elliot's (almost) daily songwriting prompt group. He sends out a song title (almost) daily, and one of them grew into this song.

lyrics

Driving on the interstate at midnight
Johnny Cash is on the radio
The scenery goes past, I never notice
Because I’ve got a long long way to go

It’s hard, driving, yes it’s hard, driving
On the interstate
At midnight

Driving on the interstate at midnight
The coffee’s cold, and I haven’t got a light
I can’t wait to get to where I’m going
But I’ve been driving through the day and through the night

Well it’s hard, driving, yes it’s hard, driving
On the interstate
At midnight

But i left everything to be with you
And i can't turn back the clock, or the car
And I don't care about no restraining order
I just wanna be wherever you are

And it’s hard, driving, yes it’s hard, driving
On the interstate
At midnight

Driving on the interstate at midnight
Johnny Cash is on the radio
Jesus is beside me as i hurtle through the dark
I haven't seen you since so long ago
I'll be with you soon i just want you to know

But it’s hard, driving, yes it’s hard, driving
On the interstate
At midnight
