ON DOWN THE LINE
Lyrics by Jeff Pike and Bush Peebles.
Music by Jeff Pike
On a highway east of Birmingham.
I hate to leave you blue. That’s the way I am.
I made it very clear. I couldn’t stay for long.
You didn’t wanna listen. I can’t take you along.
I’ve been rich and I’ve been poor.
And I don’t want to know what life may have in store.
You say we’ve just begun, but I’m only having fun.
I see it in your eyes. I can’t stay here anymore.
My bags are packed I’m leaving. Gotta move on down the line.
I gotta get out of this town, before I change my mind.
And if I heard you cry I would have to stay.
For I should have been gone – yesterday.
Baby if I stayed things would never be the same.
I hate to hurt you so. Sometimes love is a game.
Yes we are here in warm. Protected from the storm.
Oh but I can still feel those cold wild winds blow
My bags are packed I’m leaving. I’ve gotta move on down the line.
I’ve gotta get out of this town, before I change my mind.
And if I heard you cry, I would have to stay.
For I should have been gone….long before today
So I’ll move on down the line.
I’ll move on down the line.
On down the line.
On down the….line…
