lyrics

Fifty thousand dollars from the People's Bank and Trust
Sunlight glinting off the frosted pines
Live After Death playing on the stereo
A mile from the Shelby County line

It's the coldest day of the year so far
The wind chill is twenty-nine below
Catch a glimpse of blue light flashing in my rear view
Let's see how fast this thing can go

Put Shelbyville in the rear view mirror
And watch the landscape blur as I speed by
The future's getting a little clearer
There's not a single cloud in the sky

When I hit Assumption I get on fifty-one
Point my nose north and hit the gas
I can feel the shackles of my dull dead-end life
Loosen with every marker that I pass

I'm heading up through Radford when the tire blows
I shrug it off 'cause there's nothing I can do
Sparks shoot up like fireworks from the road below
There's bound to be more damage by the time this day is through

Put Shelbyville in the rear view mirror
And watch the landscape blur as I speed by
The future's getting a little clearer
There's not a single cloud in the sky

I'm nearly to Moweaqua when I finally lose control
End up off the road half-buried in the snow
And I know they're going to take me back to Shelbyville
Back to the only place I guess I'll ever know
