lyrics

Roxy met Jack Valentine on Christmas Eve, back in '29
He picked her up at a quarter to eight, she was hitching a ride on the Interstate
He saw the blood stained on her hands, but he thought he'd give this girl a chance

From the moment he laid eyes on her Jack knew they'd never part
They were two of a kind, partners in crime and doomed from the start
He said 'where do you wanna go today?' and she said 'let's ride along the Dark Highway'

They stopped in at a pawn shop, saw some instruments for sale
They had no money on them so they stole them, made their getaway
They rode along the Dark Highway

Well, 4 years passed, their legend grew across the Southern States
They played in every town they found, then robbed it the next day
They rode along the Dark Highway

They knew someday their time would come - the lawmen always win
And death's the final wage you'll earn from living life in sin
Hell, we all gotta die some day... until then they'd ride along the Dark Highway
