CHRIS HILLMAN lyrics - Running The Roadblocks

CHRIS HILLMAN
"Running The Roadblocks"

Headlights in my face
There's a roadblock up ahead
I've been a-toolin' down to Tooley
Coming home just like I said
Doin' ninety in a speed trap
They won't catch me from behind
I've been driving myself crazy
Big wheel makin' up time

Like a thief in the night there's no turnin' back
Runnin' down the highway you know I'm ahead of the pack
Like a man out on the stakeouts veering 'til the border
Well, I'm running the roadblocks to get back home to you

Pavement screams beneath my tires
Like there's some fool to tell
Callin' on all the squad cars
Lies at the set of the Golden L
Ranger said pull over
Fat chance I'm at the wheel
The night is crisp can you see their fist
Everybody's after me

Like a thief in the night there's no turnin' back
Runnin' down the highway you know I'm ahead of the pack
Like a man out on the stakeouts veering 'til the border
I'm running the roadblocks to get back home to you
I'm running the roadblocks to get back home to you
I'm running the roadblocks to get back home to you
