Southwind

Southwind and a pickup truck
On a gravel road and I think I'm in luck
Cause the sun's high in the western sky
And in an hour or two I'll be by your side.

I know these hills like the back of my hand
But they feel like a no-man's land 
without you.
Ten days on a workin' trip,
Back's achin' and my jeans are ripped
I'm through.

Southwind and a pickup truck
On a gravel road and I think I'm in luck
Cause the sun's lower in the western sky
And in an hour I know I'll be by your side.

Long shadows stretch across my way
Been counting nights just to make it to this day
Deer standing on the far side
Bodies tense and their eyes wide
Just stay

Southwind and a pickup truck
On a gravel road and I think I'm in luck
Cause the sun's settin' in the western sky
And in a minute more I'll be by your side.

(Instrumental)

Down the canyon and my brights are on
Seems like the last two miles are a million 
miles long
I know this road will call me out again
But I hear our dogs barkin' as I pull 
This big truck in.

Southwind behind my pickup truck
On that gravel road and I count myself lucky
Cause the sun's gone from the western sky
Just you and me, and we're in for the night.
Yeah the sun's gone from the western sky
And this workin' man ain't nothin' but your 
Stay-at-home guy.
