All those little white road signs say

Jesus said

You got to shake the daylights out of feeling bad

And get off the highway, get one or two

Of those whiskey morphines

For the memories of her and you

The milk of the madhouse

Say hello to the man in the roadhouse

Cadillac wheels

Keep me rolling on

Maybe someday I will get there

But tonight

We’re going to Canton Town

Riding all night, right through New Year’s

One ring

One vow

You take your love and you tear it down

That’s the only wicked thing

That’s the only wicked thing

You see my picture in the paper

But that ain’t much

You got to tip the doorman with a little touch

And when love comes knocking

There’s nothing you can do

It’s going to kill you outright

Or fool around with you

When it gets all roots and bare hands

You say thank you to the man in the roadhouse

Cadillac wheels

Keep me rolling on

Maybe someday I will get there

But tonight we’re going to Canton Town

Riding all night, right through New Year’s

One ring

One vow

You take your love and you tear it down

That’s the only wicked thing

That’s the only wicked thing
