The Lyrics

Couldn't think of a name if you have one put it in the comments. Thanks!
Sit in that six-lane backed up traffic
Horns are honking, I've about had it
I'm looking for an exit sign
Gotta get out of here, get it all off my mind
And like a memory from Denver Warehouse
A song comes slippin' through the radio static
Changing my mood
A little Tempurpedic 1982

And it makes me wanna take a back road
Makes me wanna take the short way home
Put a little gravel in my travel
Sleeping, sleeping all night long
Makes me wanna grab my pillow
Possibly sleep till noon
Who knows
Go to sleep and get right with my dreams
Makes me wanna take
Makes me wanna take a back road.

I've been asleep, under covers, 'bout forgotten
What my house looks like with people in it.
If I'm gonna hit a traffic jam,
Well I better have my pillow
So sick and tired of this interstate system
I need a curve and wind-a-twistin'
Dusty path to a bed
When it's midnight and I can't even sleep

Yeah, makes me wanna take a back road
Makes me wanna take the short way home
Put a little gravel in my travel
Sleeping, sleeping all night long
Makes me wanna grab my pillow
Possibly sleep till noon
Who knows
Go to sleep and get right with my dreams
Makes me wanna take
Makes me wanna take a back road.
Some old back road

Maybe it's the feeling or maybe it's the sleeping
Maybe it's my comfy bed
Where I park it when I feel lazy
Where I park it when I feel lazy

And it makes me wanna take a back road
Makes me wanna take the short way home
Put a little gravel in my travel
Sleeping, sleeping all night long
Makes me wanna grab my pillow
Possibly sleep till noon
Who knows
Go to sleep and get right with my dreams
Makes me wanna take
Makes me wanna take a back road.
Some old back road, get right with my dreams
Now all I gotta do is take some old back road
Where I park it when I feel lazy
Way down, way down, way down some old back road
