lyrics

Counting the dollar before the deeds done,
Going back to your daughter, giving back to your son.
Back to the highway as black hits the night,
In comes the fog, Out go the lights.

Midnight bobtail don't carry that load,
Short of a home off the road
Bound to be buried alone with no gold
I'd rather go free than get sold

Rocky Mountain side wall, the closest friend,
Next to the ledge close to the end
Like my woman back home, with a hundred days to live
Stuck in the cold, working the shift

Midnight bobtail don't carry that load,
Short of a home off the road
Bound to be buried alone with no gold
I'd rather go free than get sold

Down through the township, the range road is slick
There's peace in the valley, and room in the ditch
To put down that clydesdale, free the slave
Leave me here, to dig my own grave
