Lyrics
On A Roll Mike Lacey 2012


I gotta fly, go chase the wind
City walls are closing in
Getting nowhere sitting here
Watching dreams just disappear

Heading out to wander free
Hear the highway calling me
Where the diesel in the air is sweet
Riding hard while the world's asleep


Chorus
I ain't the kind to settle down, no looking back or turning 'round
Never gonna stop, gypsy in my soul
When I wanna rock, it's time for me to roll

Harp fill

Feeling restless need a break
Going fast is my escape
Cleans the clutter out of my mind
Future waiting on down the line

Road ahead stretching long and black
Sends a shiver shooting down my back
Heat's rising like a cobra's dance
Got the feel of a new romance

Chorus

Solo (A - G - D - A x 4)

Come alive getting out to roam
Travel light, and best alone
Open road is a welcome sight
Change of scenery set me right

Motor growls like a grizzly den
Setting sun's a familiar friend
Moon climbs a crimson sky
Got the wings I need to fly

Chorus-
Repeat chorus
