VERSE:
Well the reason I was lookin' for you all over town
Was to tell you that your kitty-cat he's still around
And you left your weddin' ring when you went down
That wide open road
If you're gonna stay away then honey let me know
How to cook hot biscuits out of a roll of dough
Everything's gone crazy since I told you to go
Down the wide open road
REFRAIN:
There's a wide open road
And honey I want you to know
You can look down south or you can turn back home
And there's a wide open road
