The Road's My Middle Name
Bonnie Raitt Lyrics


I told you once the day we met
I wouldn't be your queen
Your little darlin', sweet coquette
Just what my routine

You've been around enough to know
There's really no one else
When I hear that siren call, baby
I just can't help myself
I gotta go
I hope you'll understand
I love you so
Want you to be my man

I hear it call
Sounds so sweet and plain
I gotta go, baby
Because the road's my middle name

Well, it's hard enough to love someone
When they're right close to home
Don't you think I know it's hard, honey
To squeeze the sugar from the phone

Guess the road is in my blood
'Cause I'm my daddy's kid
Just have to learn how to let me go
Just like my momma did

I gotta go
I hope you'll understand
Yeah, I love you so
Want you to be my man

I hear it call, baby
Sounds so sweet and plain
I gotta go
Because the road's my middle name

Hear it call
And it sounds so sweet and plain
I gotta go
'Cause the road is my middle name

I gotta go
'Cause the road my middle name
Ooh, I gotta go, darlin'
Because the road is my middle name

Has 'almost' forgotten how seminal, eclectically Stupendous this album AND ALL OF ITS songs were back in 1990. This article from Friday brought all of its power and R&B musical history / hit songs made, back to me. Cannot wait till you come back to Red Rocks again.....cause da road what be yo' middle name! XOXOXO Bonnie! 3/22/19 Interview - http://bit.ly/2HCosFV
