Lyrics

Ride the Open Road

I first met you back in 1976

There you were standing in that spot

You were all alone in a crowded parking lot     

Were you going to let me take you home or not.

 

I didn’t know what to say to you

You were looking oh so very blue

Standing by yourself not knowing what to do

But oh so bright, shiny and new.

 

Chorus

Ride, ride, ride the open road

Come on, let’s ride the open road

You and I should ride the open road

Come on, you know it’s time to go.

 

Mile after mile you drove with me

And I know that the years took their toll on you

But you always looked so pretty in blue

Even when you weren’t bright, shiny and new.

 

Bridge

It was back in 1998

You and I were out a little late

We got hit head on that night

But everything turned out all right.

 

You and I are in this forever

You take care of me and I of you

A model two thousand two

You’re the perfect BMW.

  

Chorus

Ride, ride, ride the open road

Come on, let’s ride the open road

You and I should ride the open road

Come on, you know it’s time to go.

Yeah, you know it’s time to go.
