Amarillo Highway

Well I'm a high straight in Plainview side bet in Idalou
And a fresh deck in New Deal
Yeah some call me high hand and some call me low hand
But I'm holding what I am the wheel
 
Yeah I'm a panhandlin' man handlin'
Post holin' high rollin' dust bowlin' daddy
And I ain't got no blood veins I just got them four lanes
Of hard Amarillo highway
 
Well I don't wear no Stetson but I'm willin' to bet son
That I'm big a Texan as you are
There's a girl in her bare feet asleep on my back seat
And the trunk's full of Pearl and Lone Star
 
'Coz I'm a panhandlin' man handlin'
Post holin' high rollin' dust bowlin' daddy
And I ain't got no blood veins I just got them four lanes
Of hard Amarillo highway
 
I gotta hop outta bed pop a pill in my head
Gonna bust a hub for the golden spread under blue skies
Gonna stuff my hide behind some power glide
And get some southern fried back in my eyes
 
'Coz I'm a panhandlin' man handlin'
Post holin' high rollin' dust bowlin' daddy
Yeah the closest I'll ever get to heaven
Is speedin' up ol' 87 of that hard-ass Amarillo highway
 
Yeah I'm a panhandlin' man handlin'
Post holin' high rollin' dust bowlin' daddy
 
Thanks!
