Love's to Blame - Steve Earle

I was not born in this town
But that ol' highway wore me down
Days roll by and turn to years
I don't know why i'm still here

He told me he loved me so
But there were things he'd never know
Then one day i said i'd stay
But he'd already turned away

I don't know why i gave into to love when it called my name
Now i'm lonely, the highway don't know me, and love's to blame

I swore i'd hit the road again
And i would not recall a thing
But every time i tried to leave
Love came tuggin' at my sleeve

I don't know know why i needed to hear someone call my name
Now i'm lonely, the highway don't know me, and love's to blame

Last night i was fast asleep
Pray the lord my soul to keep
But i woke up to that highway sound
I knew i'd never leave this town
