Keepin' the Road Hot

They say when you find true love
You'd better hang on to what you've got
Find a way to make it last
Be sure that girl is yours

Well, my baby lives away 'cross town
Until things change, I'm blacktop bound
It makes me feel alive to rev it up and ride

I'll be keepin' the road hot
I'm on the move, ain't gonna stop
Hearts on fire and we're miles apart
So I'll be keepin' the road hot

I get up and I work all day
The minutes seem like hours as they tick away
By afternoon the time's so slow
I'm a daydream nighttime Romeo

Then the whistle blows and it's time to rock
I head out for that parking lot
Car is on my side, I rev it up and ride

I'll be keepin' the road hot
I'm on the move, ain't gonna stop
Hearts on fire and we're miles apart
So I'll be keepin' the road hot

Mmm, that highway sound
Thinking of her as the wheels go 'round
It's got me hypnotized every time I ride

I'll be keepin' the road hot
I'm on the move, ain't gonna stop
Wheels are burnin' that ol' blacktop
Yeah, I'll be keepin' the road hot

I'll be keepin' the road hot
I'll be keepin' the road hot, oh
I'll be keepin' the road hot
I'll be keepin' the road hot, oh
I'll be keepin' the road hot
