Words and music by Harley Allen, Leigh Reynolds and Garth Brooks


She was born to a mother trucker,
raised behind the wheel
So you can blame it on the highway
For the way she can't sit still.
She says "Life is like a windshield;
it ain't no rear-view mirror.
The only way to get a-where you're goin' is to find that higher gear,
And keep it rollin'

Life's gonna run you over if you don't get goin'."
She said, "I wanna feel the earth move under me,
Movin' with the motion of a melody.
Oh, I got the blues if the rhythm ain't got no soul.
You gotta keep on rollin'

Well, I knew I was in trouble
When she told me that talk was cheap
Said, "If you're tired, get on the sofa,
'Cause the bed's no place to sleep."
Then she reached out and she kissed me;
Lord, it knocked me to my knees.
And I knew if I was gonna get naked,
I was gonna have to roll up my sleaves
And keep it rollin'

Life's gonna run you over if you don't get goin'.
She said, "I wanna feel the earth move under me,
Movin' with the motion of a melody.
Oh, I got the blues if the rhythm ain't got no soul.
You gotta keep on rollin'

(bridge/instrumental)

So I talked her into gettin' married,
But she wouldn't hang up her wheels.
I was afraid to take a back seat
To the way the highway feels.
But each day, she's pullin' over
More than she used to.
She knows love is like a highway;
The main thing you gotta do
Is keep it rollin'

Life's gonna pass you by if you don't get goin'.
She said, "I wanna feel the earth move under me,
Rockin' with the motion of a melody.
Oh, I get the blues if the rhythm ain't got no soul.
You gotta keep on rollin'
