Hit the Road With Me

lyrics

Remember the night when we went into debt
We pooled all our cash and lost all our bets
And we chewed on our fine cigarettes
As they broke the news

Remember we spent the last coin at the bar
Bought a few beers, smoked one last cigar
And we slept 'neath a sky full of stars
And we played the blues

Fill your glass with brandy
Fill your mouth with candy
Leave behind your sorrow
And hit the road with me

Remember when I traded my shoes
For a half cigarette and some corner-store booze
I thought I had nothing to lose
Until the winter came

Remember the time when I turned out the lights
And we stayed up till dawn just to talk in the night
And everything was right
Until the break of day

Fill your glass with brandy
Fill your mouth with candy
Leave behind your sorrow
And hit the road with me

I remember the night that we won the war
Raise up the flag unlock the doors
You should sell all the food in your stores
Before it's on again

I remember the moon was hanging high
Toss out the guns and bring out the wine
It's only a matter of time
Before it's gone again

Fill your glass with brandy
Fill your mouth with candy
Leave behind your sorrow
And hit the road with me
