STRANGER ROAD
Melissa Etheridge


Take the road to Tonganoxie, just before sun catcher lake
Go past the cemetery oh child please don't make me wait
Cause there's something wrong with what I've done
I haven't got much time
I can't stay in Kansas I've gotta cross the line
So take me down to the Missouri on the way to Arkansas
The devil's in a hurry to see what my mamma saw
Now I'm on the run I've got no other place to go
Except down the stranger road

I walked straight out the back door I covered up my tracks
My poppa thinks it's criminal so I ain't coming back
Cause there's something wrong with what I've done
I haven't got much time
And what I want and what I need
Is all I have in mind

Come on come on come on come on
The blood runs hot but the eyes are cold
Driving down the stranger road
Ohhhh The blood runs hot oh but the eyes are cold
Driving down to hell stranger road
Except down to stranger road
Come on come on come on come on
Come on come on come on come on
Come on come on come on come on
