The guy sings of what he sees: a dancing girl, band members playing hockey, moonlight on the cemetery, business man with a spoon, a coyote, a lady wearing high heels, several boys gonna start howling at the moon. Then he encourages some girl to run to some forest, to the next town, and to hope that he would catch up for her. Interesting model of creating the lyrics in songs – simply to sing about what you see and that’s it. Reference: Listen to Sleeping on the Blacktop

Sleeping on the Blacktop Song Lyrics

[Verse 1]
Sunshine beating on the good times
Moonlight raising from the grave
String band playing worn out honkey-tonks
Pretty young thing going dancing in the rain
[Verse 2]
High heel lady spitting at the nickajack
Business man with a needle and a spoon
Coyote chewing on a cigarette
Pack o' young boys going howlin' at the moon
Hey darlin'!
Sleeping on the blacktop
Hey darlin'!
Running through the trees honey
Hey darlin'!
Leaving for the next town
Lessen my sense catches up with me
[Verse 3]
Three dead in a crash on the number 4
Two witnesses blown up high
Not sure who's will be done
You can call me a sinner for wondering why
[Verse 4]
Corn liquour tastes sweeter in this town
Could it be its the same as the last
I swear I've seen ya face elsewhere before
Just as familiar as a bottle and a glass
[Chorus X2]
