Turn the page

On a long and lonesome highway east of Omaha
You can listen to the engines moanin’ out his one-note song
You’d think about the woman or the girl you knew the night before

But your thoughts will soon be wandering the way they always do
When you’re riding sixteen hours there’s nothing much to do
And you don’t feel much like riding, you just wish the trip was through

Here I am, on the road again
There I am, up on the stage
There I go, playing star again
There I go, turn the page

So you walk into this restaurant, all strung out from the road
And you feel the eyes upon you, as you’re shaking off the cold
You pretend it doesn’t bother you, but you just want to explode

Yeah, most times you can’t hear ‘em talk, other times you can
All the same old clichés: “Is it woman? Is it man?”
And you always seem outnumbered, you don’t dare make a stand.
Make your stand.

Now here I am, on the road again
There I am, up on the stage
Here I go, playing the star again
There I go, turn the page

Out there in the spotlight, you’re a million miles away
Every ounce of energy, you try to give away
As the sweat pours out your body, like the music that you play, yeah…

Later in the evening, as you lie awake in bed
With the echoes of the amplifiers ringin’ in your head
You smoke the day’s last cigarette, rememberin’ what she said
What she said

Yeah!

Yeah, and here I am, on the road again
There I am, up on that stage
And here I go, playing star again
And there I go, turn the page
And there I go, turn that page
There I go, yeah, yeah
There I go, yeah, yeah, yeah

There I go, yeah
Here I go, yeah
There I go
There I go

And I’m gone…

(Music & lyrics Bob Seger)
