      Lyrics for Brooks & Dunn - "A Few Good Rides Away"

      I was sittin' in a truckstop
      Watchin' tumbleweeds roll by
      Tryin' to read the menu
      When the waitress caught my eye
      She pulled a pencil from her hair
      And leaned across the bar
      I did my best not to stare
      But man, she made it hard

      I asked that trucker next to me
      Hey, what looks good today
      He said I know what's on your mind
      And boy, there ain't no way
      Get yourself some apple pie
      And something cool to drink
      I know you want the special
      And I like the way you think

      But you can't have the waitress
      Boy, everybody's tried
      There's a cowboy down in Abilene
      Who keeps her satisfied
      They got a hundred acre dream
      That's gettin' closer every day
      Just a few more plates of ham and eggs
      And a few good rides away

      Hard times hit West Texas
      Damn near everything's for sale
      But there's somethings we hold sacred
      When everything else fails
      When we're down to nothing
      Out here, everybody shares
      Most of us have lost our dreams
      So we bought into theirs

      I've seen her walk a hundred miles
      Up and down this floor
      I've never seen her fail to smile
      When he limps through that door
      So when you're done, you leave a tip
      And make it nice and fat
      And feel lucky you can own a piece
      Of something like that

      But you can't have the waitress
      Boy, everybody's tried
      There's a cowboy down in Abilene
      Who keeps her satisfied
      They got a hundred acre dream
      That's gettin' closer every day
      Just a few more plates of ham and eggs
      And a few good rides away

      But you can't have the waitress
      Boy, everybody's tried
      There's a cowboy down in Abilene
      Who keeps her satisfied
      They got a hundred acre dream
      That's gettin' closer every day
      Just a few more plates of ham and eggs
      And a few good rides away

      Just a few more plates of ham and eggs
      And a few good rides away
