From the recording Ride the Open Road

Lyrics

<p><strong>Ride the Open Road</strong></p>
<p>I first met you back in 1976</p>
<p>There you were standing in that spot</p>
<p>You were all alone in a crowded parking lot &nbsp; &nbsp;&nbsp;</p>
<p>Were you going to let me take you home or not.</p>
<p>&nbsp;</p>
<p>I didn&rsquo;t know what to say to you</p>
<p>You were looking oh so very blue</p>
<p>Standing by yourself not knowing what to do</p>
<p>But oh so bright, shiny and new.</p>
<p>&nbsp;</p>
<p><strong><em>Chorus</em></strong></p>
<p><strong>Ride, ride, ride the open road</strong></p>
<p><strong>Come on, let&rsquo;s ride the open road</strong></p>
<p><strong>You and I should ride the open road</strong></p>
<p><strong>Come on, you know it&rsquo;s time to go.</strong></p>
<p>&nbsp;</p>
<p>Mile after mile you drove with me</p>
<p>And I know that the years took their toll on you</p>
<p>But you always looked so pretty in blue</p>
<p>Even when you weren&rsquo;t bright, shiny and new.</p>
<p>&nbsp;</p>
<p><strong><em>Bridge</em></strong></p>
<p><em>It was back in 1998</em></p>
<p><em>You and I were out a little late</em></p>
<p><em>We got hit head on that night</em></p>
<p><em>But everything turned out all right.</em></p>
<p>&nbsp;</p>
<p>You and I are in this forever</p>
<p>You take care of me and I of you</p>
<p>A model two thousand two</p>
<p>You&rsquo;re the perfect BMW.</p>
<p>&nbsp;&nbsp;</p>
<p><strong><em>Chorus</em></strong></p>
<p><strong>Ride, ride, ride the open road</strong></p>
<p><strong>Come on, let&rsquo;s ride the open road</strong></p>
<p><strong>You and I should ride the open road</strong></p>
<p><strong>Come on, you know it&rsquo;s time to go.</strong></p>
<p><strong>Yeah, you know it&rsquo;s time to go. </strong></p>
<p>&nbsp;</p>
