24 Towns

Written by Keith Mouland

Keep talking to me baby, things are moving slow
White knuckles on the steering and my head down low
Turning my four good wheels into the night
Giving all my money to some drug store guy

Well I was strong and steady when I first pulled away
Telephone lovin’ lord the first of the day
Now I’m on borrowed time, just trying to keep up
Hope I stay awake before I run out of luck

24 towns, taking them all in my stride
24 towns, thinking about you every mile
24 towns I’ve already been through and it will soon be 25
Then I’ll be laying by your side

Now keep talking to me baby, tell me where’s the next shortcut ?
‘Cause I’m driving through the mountains and this line’s breaking up
Well five hundred miles is such a long way around
Now baby won’t you come back down to your hometown

24 towns, taking them all in my stride
24 towns, thinking about you all the while
24 towns I’ve already been through and it will soon be 25
Then I’ll be laying by your side
Yeah laying by your side
