Mama, this highways gonna kill me
And mama, I think my rose is wilting
The kids and her alone while I’m so far from home
I feel so guilty
Mama, this highways gonna kill me

I hope the road that takes me there will always bring me back
But I guess whatever will be, will be
Mama this highways gonna kill me

Woman, I wish I couldn’t hurt you
And woman, It’s clear I don’t deserve you
I know it seems I only need you when I ain’t got nowhere else to turn too
So woman, I wish I wouldn’t hurt you

I’m sure there’s some relief in giving up and moving on
And sometimes it seems way too much to work through
Woman I never meant to hurt you

Lord, I beg of you protect me
Cause lately, swear the devil’s out to get me
It ain’t a leap of faith to say he always prays upon the unsuspecting
So Lord, I beg of you protect me

I can’t walk with you if the devil got my hand
I hope you have my back and direct me
Jesus I beg of you protect me
Jesus, don’t let’em get me

“I wrote this song driving down the highway, late one night, somewhere out west. I remember I was coming through the desert, looking at the wide open sky, and the words just started coming to me. The song is very contemplative; it’s like I was taking stock of my life.
“I wrote this song driving down the highway, late one night, somewhere out west. I remember I was coming through the desert, looking at the wide open sky, and the words just started coming to me. The song is very contemplative; it’s like I was taking stock of my life. The problems that come with running around the country playing songs 300+ days a year; the woman and family that’s left behind at home; and the last verse, begging the Lord to be there for me, to guide and protect me thru this crazy life. I remember pulling over at a closed up gas station and working the music out. I recorded it quick on my phone – I still have that phone recording.”
