Mile After Mile
© 2018 Hank Thomas Music/ all rights reserved

V1
I got a clean shot out of Tulsa, on this highway headin' west
There's a truck stop south of Santa Fe, where I can finally get some rest
Got an ex-wife out in Utah, two kids in Tennessee
And there's a pretty little thing in New Orleans says she's having number three

CH
Mile after mile, day after day
I been drivin' this rig from coast to coast, just trying to pay my way
Tryin' to dig myself from under one mountain at a time
Day after day, mile after mile

Lead Break

V2
I got a house that's underwater, That I can't afford to fix
And the IRS just disallowed, 3 years expenses tricks
Price of fuel been risin', I ain't never seen the likes
If I'm ever gonna see the light of day I'm gonna have to roll all night

CH
Mile after mile, day after day
I been drivin' this rig from coast to coast, just trying to pay my way
Tryin' to dig myself from under one mountain at a time
Day after day, mile after mile

BR
I been shiftin' these gears near eighteen years I ain't getting' any younger
And the way this debt keeps mountin', it's gonna be a whole lot longer

CH
Mile after mile, day after day
I been drivin' this rig from coast to coast, just trying to pay my way
Tryin' to dig myself from under one mountain at a time
Day after day, mile after
Mile after mile, day after day
I been haulin' this freight from coast to coast, just trying to pay my way
Tryin' to dig myself from under one mountain at a time

Day after day, mile after mile Day after day, mile after mile
Sittin' up in this cab feels like about a million miles this year
