Long Black Highway Lyrics

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
