Lyrics

Hitchhiker

10 miles down the road I see an old hitchhiker
Thumb is in the air, waiting for a ride
I pull a little closer to see it’s an old cowboy
Looking at me with hope in his eyes

I pull onto the side road, let him in the front seat
Offer him some water and head off toward the sun
He asked me for a cigarette and I told him that I had quit
About 15 years ago
About 15 years ago

He told me that his mother died when he was only 10
And no one’s ever loved him quite like that woman did
He told me that his mother died when he was only 10
And he still misses her

50 miles down the road we see another hitcher
I drive by thinking oh one’s enough today
He looks at me with wild eyes say’s thanks again for stopping
You really made my day
You really made my day

He told me that his mother died when he was only 10
And no one’s ever loved him quite like that woman did
He told me that his mother died when he was only 10
And he still misses her

100 miles down the road it’s time to say farewell
he leaves me with a smile and a face that knows too well
the pain we endure on this journey to find a little
piece of mind just a little piece of mind

He told me that his mother died when he was only 10
And no one’s ever loved him quite like that woman did
He told me that his mother died when he was only 10
And he still misses her
