I have a young friend who took off one day to Michigan to be with his girl, leaving his life in Alberta behind. What a romantic thing to do! It inspired me to write this song.

                1. Iím driving down the road in my trusty Chevrolet

                The top is down the sun is shining on my face

                Straight ahead, a new life waves its hand

                And Iím running to meet it, as quickly as I can

 

                2. I never expected to leave this old home town.

                but the moment I saw her, I heard that siren sound

                Now Iím gone, I wonít be back again

                Cause Iím running to meet her as quickly as I can

 

                Bridge

 

                Itís not that the grass is greener ahead than behind

                Itís just that my heart was stolen away and I have to find it or die.

                But thereís a big world out there and my future close at hand

                And Iím running to meet it, as quickly as I can

 

                3. So Iím driving down the road in my trusty Chevrolet

                the radio is blasting, a smile is on my face

                Straight ahead, a new life waves her hand

                And Iím running to meet her, as quickly as I can

 

                Bridge

 

                Itís not that the grass is greener ahead than behind

                Itís just that my heart was stolen away and I have to find it or die.

                But thereís a big world out there and my future close at hand

                And Iím running to meet it, as quickly as I can

                yes, Iím running to meet her, as quickly as I can
