OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

4 ladies chain, you'll turn your lady
You'll roll away and circle left
4 ladies roll away, you'll circle round now
Left allemande, weave that ring
*There won't be no sleep for me tonight
Well, you'll swing the lady round, promenade tonight
Call me the prisoner of the highway
Imprisoned by the freedom of the road

Head couples promenade go halfway around now
Walk in and square thru go 4
Ah, go all the way, then a right & left thru I say

Well you'll swing the corner lady, promenade around
Call me the prisoner of the highway
Imprisoned by the freedom of the road

Prisoner Of The Highway
 
 

Diesel powers 18 wheels to rollin'
As I pull it on to the Interstate.

I've got thirteen hours to make my destination
And I don't want to stop to check my weight
There won't be no sleep for me tonight
No, I've got to be hittin' Tulsa by first morning light.

Chorus:
I'm a prisoner of the highway
Driven on by my restless soul
Call me a prisoner of the highway
Prison by the freedom of the road.

I've run freight out of Wheeling, West Virgina
And US Steel from Memphis
I've rode tobacco out of the Carolina's
California wines into Burmingham
Some people work just to survive, yeah
But up here in this cab that's when I'm most alive.

I'm a prisoner of the highway
Driven on by my restless soul
Call me a prisoner of the highway
Prison by the freedom of the road.

Got a wife living back in Tennessee
And she tries to understand the way I feel
I could give my hands to another line of work
But my heart would always be behind the wheel.

Call me a prisoner of the highway
Driven on by my restless soul
I'm a prisoner of the highway
Prison by the freedom of the road.

Don't you know I'm a prisoner of the highway
Driven on by my restless soul
Call me a prisoner of the highway
Prison by the freedom of the road...

Lyrics by Mike Reid.
Recorded by Ronnie Milsap.
