Joe Ely She Leaves You Where You Are Lyrics

This highway's like a girl I knew
You climb into her car
She takes you many places
She leaves you where you are

Her ribbons are all a-tangle
Her breath is long and fast
But if you're only tryin' to pass the time
Her love will never last

This highway's like a girl I knew
Who walks you to her door
She teases you with lovin' arms
And promises you more

And then one day she walks away
Says she ain't goin' far
She takes you many places
But she leaves you where you are

This highway's like a girl I knew
Who had your very soul
But you tried to get too close to her
To have and to hold

Days and nights you chase her
With your bag and your guitar
She takes you many places
But she leaves you where you are

She takes you many places
But she leaves you where you are
