Roll Me Away
Bob Seger & The Silver Bullet Band Lyrics


Took a look down a westbound road right away I made my choice
Headed out to my big two wheeler I was tired of my own voice
Took a bead on the northern plains and just rolled that power on

Twelve hours out of Machinaw City stopped in a bar to have a brew
Met a girl and we had a few drinks and I told her what I'd decided to do
She looked out the window a long long moment then she looked into my eyes
She didn't have to say a thing I knew what she was thinkin'

Roll roll me away won't you roll me away tonight
I too am lost I feel double crossed and I'm sick of what's wrong and what's
right
We never even said a word we just walked out and got on that bike
And we rolled
And we rolled clean out of sight

We rolled across the high plains
Deep into the mountains
Felt so good to me
Finally feelin' free
Somewhere along a high road
The air began to turn cold
She said she missed her home
I headed on alone

Stood alone on a mountain top starin' out at the Great Divide
I could go east I could go west it was all up to me to decide
Just then I saw a young hawk flyin' and my soul began to rise
And pretty soon
My heart was singin'

Roll roll away I'm gonna roll me away tonight
Gotta keep rollin' gotta keep ridin' keep searchin' till I find what's right
And as the sunset faded I spoke to the faintest first starlight
And I said next time
Next time
We'll get it right

@Vic Luna I had a bunch of heartland rock on my playlist when I drove my daughter from Southern California to northern Minnesota for college. (She was reasonably polite about the "Dad rock.")

This song truly came alive for me on that trip; we were passing through Nebraska with the sweet light of late afternoon, and I felt the call of the American highway, and the attraction of living in a small town, away from the rat race, as if it was the first time.

I may be a Southern California kid, but America--ALL of America--is my home.

The following words were written almost 70 years ago, and they're just as true today as they were then.

"I believe in my fellow citizens. Our headlines are splashed with crime yet for every criminal there are 10,000 honest, decent, kindly men. If it were not so, no child would live to grow up. Business could not go on from day to day. Decency is not news. It is buried in the obituaries, but is a force stronger than crime. I believe in the patient gallantry of nurses and the tedious sacrifices of teachers. I believe in the unseen and unending fight against desperate odds that goes on quietly in almost every home in the land." -- "This I Believe," by Robert A. Heinlein

Took a look down a westbound road,
right away I made my choice
Headed out to my big two-wheeler,
I was tired of my own voice
Took a bead on the northern plains
and just rolled that power on

Twelve hours out of Mackinaw City
stopped in a bar to have a brew
Met a girl and we had a few drinks
and I told her what I'd decided to do
She looked out the window a long long moment
then she looked into my eyes
She didn't have to say a thing,
I knew what she was thinkin'

Roll, roll me away,
won't you roll me away tonight
I too am lost, I feel double-crossed
and I'm sick of what's wrong and what's right
We never even said a word,
we just walked out and got on that bike
And we rolled
And we rolled clean out of sight

We rolled across the high plains
Deep into the mountains
Felt so good to me
Finally feelin' free

Somewhere along a high road
The air began to turn cold
She said she missed her home
I headed on alone

Stood alone on a mountain top,
starin' out at the Great Divide
I could go east, I could go west,
it was all up to me to decide
Just then I saw a young hawk flyin'
and my soul began to rise
And pretty soon
My heart was singin'

Roll, roll me away,
I'm gonna roll me away tonight
Gotta keep rollin, gotta keep ridin',
keep searchin' till I find what's right
And as the sunset faded
I spoke to the faintest first starlight
And I said next time
Next time
We'll get it right

Amazing how fast you go from being a kid in his 20s with everything in front of him to being a hobbled middle aged geezer pushing 60 with few options on the table. Live while you can my friends!

Martha Vojtko

I’m 23 and try to keep that perspective In mind life is precious but making it too 60 is an accomplishment of life , all good things end , I just hope I can smile when all is said and done ...

@Ann Mchugh Bob Seger was My Favorite Rock Artist the first time that I heard a few of His Songs.They just happened to be some of His Greatest Hits.I was listening to His Greatest Hits Volume 1 on a Cassette.I bought my own shortly after that and the rest is History.A Bob Seger Fan For Life.I even have a Brand New Greatest Hits Volume 1 CD I've never opened as a backup whenever the one I'm listening to now wears out.His Songs just tell such great stories and about Life.
