Cue Sheet

OPENER    Basic

Circle left
Life is a road we travel on
One day we're here the next we're gone
Sometimes you bend, sometimes you stand
Then you turn your back to the wind

Men star by the right hand round
One time in the middle and then
Left allemande that corner girl, weave around the ring you go
Life is a highway, I'm gonna ride it all night long
If you're going my way, I want to drive it all night long


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Heads (sdes) promenade I sing, halfway round the ring
Come down the middle and square thru four hands round you do
Four hands in the middle and then right & left thru my friends
Veer to the left for me, do a ferris wheel and deal
Square thru three hands in the middle of the ring go
Swing that corner and promenade her back home
If you're going my way
I want to drive it all night long


MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Four ladies promenade get round in the middle and then
Run back and swing your man, go round and around again
Join hands and circle left get a walking on around I said
Left allemande that corner girl come back and weave the ring
Life is a highway, I'm gonna drive it all night long
If you're going my way, I want to drive it all night long

Life Is A Highway
 
 

Whooo umm yeah...
Life's like a road that you travel on
When there's one day here and the next day gone
Sometimes you bend, sometimes you stand
Sometimes you turn your back to the wind
There's a world outside ev'ry darkened door
Where blues won't haunt you anymore
Where the brave are free and lovers soar
Come ride with me to the distant shore
We won't hesitate
To break down the garden gate
There's not much time left today

Life is a highway
I wanna ride it all night long
If you're going my way
Well, I wanna drive it all night long

Through all these cities and all these towns
It's in my blood and it's all around
I love you now like I loved you then
This is the road and these are the hands
From Mozambique to those Memphis nights
The Khyber Pass to Vancouver's lights
Knock me down and get back up again
You're in my blood
I'm not a lonely man

There's no load I can't hold
Road so rough, this I know
I'll be there when the light comes in
Just tell 'em we're survivors

Life is a highway
I wanna ride it all night long
If you're going my way
I wanna drive it all night long
(All night long)
Gimme gimme gimme gimme yeah

Life is a highway
Well, I wanna ride it all night long, mmmm...
If you're going my way (my way)
I wanna drive it all night long (all night long)

There was a distance between you and I
(Between you and I)
A misunderstanding once
But now we look it in the eye
Ooooo...Yeah!

There ain't no load that I can't hold
A road so rough, this I know
I'll be there when the light comes in
Tell 'em we're survivors

Life is a highway
Well, I wanna ride it all night long (all night long)
Yeah, yeah
If you're going my way
Well, I wanna drive it all night long
Gimme gimme gimme, gimme gimme gimme - yeah!
Life is a highway (life is a highway)
I wanna ride it all night long (oooh, yeah)
If you're going my way (you're going my way)
I wanna drive it all night long (all night long)
Come on, gimme gimme gimme, gimme gimme gimme
Life is a highway
I wanna ride it all night long
(Yeah I wanna drive it all night long, baby)
If you're going my way (you're going my way)
I wanna drive it all night long (all night long)

Lyrics by Tom Cochrane.
Recorded by Rascal Flatts.
