Sittin' down here, thinkin', yes, babe, I believe I had better go
You know, I believe I'll go down, that long, long old dusty road

Now, that 80 Highway, is the longest highway that I know
Now, that 80 Highway, is the longest highway that I know

You know, I'm gonna look for you at night, 'way down on 80 Highway with someone else

Yes, and if you get in trouble, call down to Clubhouse 45
Yes, if you get in trouble, call down to Clubhouse 45
Baby, and now you just open up my chifferobe, and you'll see where my dollar lies
