​Goin' and a Blowin'

This song is by Chris LeDoux and appears on the album Songbook of the American West (1976).

I'm a goin' and a blowin' and a heading down the road
Tryin' to make a livin' rodeoin'
I've been a driving all night 'neath the pail moonlight
Waiting for the sun to start showin'
There's too many miles and not enough time
But I'm gonna make it just the same
Well, it's a mighty tough life but I like it all right
You know I wouldn't have it any other way

Well, I've been drinkin' that ol' black coffee till it tastes like turpentine
And I've heard every song on the Bill Mack Show purd'near fifty times
And a little green man on a motorcycle passed a little while ago
Boy, I can sure use some sleep but I gotta keep a-headin' on down the road

Let's drive up get out and get on another one and boy you better win
'Cause your money's gettin' low and the banker gets mad
When them hot checks start rolling in
Well ain't life great on this interstate a-lookin' out for Smokey the Bear
And flyin high on caffeine and Copenhagen and a breathing that cool night air

I'm a goin' and a blowin' and a heading down the road
Tryin' to make a livin' rodeoin'
I've been a driving all night 'neath the pail moonlight
Waiting for the sun to start showin'
There's too many miles and not enough time
But I'm gonna make it just the same
Well, it's a mighty tough life but I like it all right
You know I wouldn't have it any other way
Well, it's a mighty tough life but I like it all right
You know I wouldn't have it any other way
