Hancock Wayne Lyrics
by Wayne Hancock on That's What Daddy Wants ((c) 1999) Track 07
transcribed by Darren Richmond
(E) Sittin' in the kitchen with my (A) back against the wall
I was (B7)waitin' for my baby but my baby didn't (E) call
Suddenly there came a stranger (A) knockin' on my door
He (B7) told me there had been a wreck out on highway 5 (E) 4.
She was with another man was what the stranger said
I asked if she'd survived it but he slowly shook his head
They were on their way to the other side of town
They tried to beat a freight train, and the freight train ran 'em down
(A) Highway 54 took my (E) love away from me
I (B7) knew she didn't want me, but I (E) couldn't set her free
(A) She was with another like so (E) many times before
She (B7) paid the price of runnin' round out on highway 5 (E) 4.
(yeah, run her down brother)
Many sleepless nights have passed my broken heart since then
The man that she was runnin' with once was my best friend
All the dreams that I had they fill my mind no more
'Cause they died with her that tragic night out on highway 54.
(B7)Yeah, she paid the price of cheatin' me out on highway 5 (E) 4.
