Long Black Highway by Chris Isaak


Me and Billy roofers of houses
Met at the local union hall
It was like I found my long lost brother
We drank like fish and worked like dogs
Lookin’ back I knew he’d get me in trouble
But I didn’t have too many friends
Runnin up and down that Dixie highway
We thought the good times would never end
Down that long black highway
Theres a deep dark hole
Down that long black highway
Theres a lot of things you never know
We chased women and we chased whiskey
From the gulf up to ohio
Then one night we ran out of money
We robbed us an all night Texaco
Right in there I guess the friendship ended
That’s where the good times fell apart
I remember screamin at billy
You shoulda let that kid alone shoulda drove off in the dark
Down that long black highway
Theres a deep dark hole
Down that long black highway
Theres a lot of things you never know
Well we pulled on a back road
I stopped to think about what wed done
I got out, took a leak and I lit a smoke
Now im wishin I had run
Cuz billy always was a mean one
And he was stoned on out of his head
Well I guess he quit shootin
When he thought that I was dead
On down that long black highway
Theres a deep dark hole
Down that long black highway
Theres a lot of things you never know
I woke up sometime around daylight
But I didn’t live long after that
I was taken back up to the highway
By a ghost he was wearin a Texaco hat
Now me and that kid we haunt that stretch of highway
And go and see billy from time to time
Now billy always acted a little bit crazy
But now he’s done gone plumb out of his mind
On down that long black highway
Theres a deep dark hole
Down that long black highway
Theres a lot of things you never know
