Boy on the Road

When I think Iím right you always think that Iím wrong
When I think Iím wrong you always think that Iím right
Well it only goes to show that you really just donít know
Iím a boy on the road and I ainít gonna take you along
Iím a boy on the road and I ainít gonna take you along

I headed on down to the railroad station
To catch a ride to my next destination
When I heard a voice say boy you canít ride
When I heard a voice say boy you canít ride
You canít ride

Well I told you I loved you but you never said you were mine
Well I said you were mine but you never ever told me you loved me
Well it only goes to show that you really just donít know
Iím a boy on the road and I ainít gonna take you along
Iím a boy on the road and I ainít gonna take you along

I heard brakes squeal as the train stood still
I jumped on board through a wide open door
When I heard a voice say boy you canít ride
When I heard a voice say boy you canít ride
You canít ride

Well I told you that Iím leaving and Iíll never ever be back
Well Iíll never be back so Iíll never ever be leaving
Well it only goes to show that you really just donít know
Iím a boy on the road and I ainít gonna take you along
Iím a boy on the road and I ainít gonna take you along

The engine rumbled as tumble weed tumbled
The sun was setting like gold confetti
When I heard a voice say boy you canít ride
When I heard a voice say boy you canít ride
You canít ride

Well I told you I loved you but you never said you were mine
Well I said you were mine but you never ever told me you loved me
Well it only goes to show that you really just donít know
Iím a boy on the road and I ainít gonna take you along
Iím a boy on the road and I ainít gonna take you along
