Lyrics


Yeah, keep your eyes on the road, your hands upon the wheel Keep your eyes on the road, your hands upon the wheel We're goin' to the roadhouse, we're gonna have a real Good time

Back at the roadhouse they got some bungalows Said, at the back of the roadhouse they got some bungalows And that's for the people Who like to go down slow

Let it roll, baby, roll Let it roll, baby, roll Let it roll, baby, roll Let it roll, all night long

Back at the roadhouse they got some bungalows Said, at the back of the roadhouse they got some bungalows And that's for the people who like to go down slow They like to get it down slow Like to get it way down

Ashen lady, Ashen lady Give up your vows, give up your vows Save our city, save our city Right now

Take it up Take it up Take it up, way up Take it up

Well, I woke up this morning, I got myself a beer Well, I woke up this morning and I got myself a beer The future's uncertain and the end is always near

Let it roll, baby, roll Let it roll, baby, roll Let it roll, baby, roll Let it roll, all night long
