Amarillo Highway  Robert Earl Keen



 

 

[G]I'm a high straight in Plainview
[G]A side bet in Idalou
[G]An' a fresh deck in [C]New Deal
[D]Yeah some call me high handed
[D]Some call me low handed
[D]But I'm holdin' what I am the [G]wheel
Chorus:
[G]'Cause I'm panhandlin' manhandlin'
[G]Post holin' hugh rollin' dust bowlin' [C]Daddy
I [D]ain't got no blood in my veins
[D]I just got them four lanes
[D]Of hard Amarillo [G]Highway
I don't wear no Stetson
But I'm willin' to bet son
That I'm as big a Texan as you are
There's a girl in her bare feet
Assleep on the back seat
And the trunk's full of Pearl beer and Lone Star
CHORUS
Gonna hop outta bed
Pop a pill in my head
Bust a hub for the Golden Spread
Under Blue Skies
Gonna stuff my hide
Behind some Power Glide
Get some southern fried back in my hide
CHORUS
Refrain:
As Close as I'll ever get to heaven
Is makin' speed up old eighty-seven
Of that hard Amarillo Highway
