Horses on the Highway

album: Step by Step (1990), track 1 of 14
author: Chuck Pyle/Carol Bradbury
publisher: Bee 'n' Flower Music BMI

Passed your other lover on the road last night
So close I brushed his sleeve
Had my old reaction
But I did not throw down
Didn't want to bring him the relief

One and one and one other is three
Three is such a painful way to be
Either you're with him
Or you're with me
Got to set one of us free
   Horses on the highway
   Fence is down to the wire
   Horses on the highway
   Ain't no fencing desire
Free as a cloud wanders the sky
My rider's by my side
Makin' a run down to Ojai
Wanna come along for the ride?

Somebody's steady rollin' man
Don't want nobody second hand
If you been makin' other plans
Better find a safe place to stand
Cupid took a shot, divided by the sun
Into two separate sides
One side was light, the other was dark
It was the darkest part of my mind

One's the sun, one's the moon, it merely shines
Everything in the sky is not divine
Either you're his or you're mine
Gotta be just one of a kind
Horses on the highway
Far away from home
Horses on the highway
Some were born to roam
