Lyrics

Well he passes now and then, as I watch over the highway
I'm looking from overhead, for a killer running free

Well the late shift took it's toll, and I pulled one over again
And I struggled to see a face inside, so I slowly drew my weapon
And he rolled the window down, presented me his card
For Dominion Coal & Steel I drive, I'm not going very far

Sir you were goin 105, and I'ma have to check your load
And without a hestitation I was looking down the barrel
Of a fully loaded gun, I saw flashes of my life
I had only just had met my daughter, I'd a newly wedded wife
I said sir please settle down, I'll just lay down on the ground
But he must have pulled the trigger 'fore the words were out my mouth

Well he passes now and then, as I watch over the highway
I'm looking from overhead, for a killer running free, free ohh
