Dan Fogelberg — Mountain Pass lyrics

Well, I'm runnin' down this mountain pass at midnight;
Those truckers, they all flash their lights at me.
This highway ain't the very best companion,
'cause I know there's somewhere else I'd rather be.

The moonlight on the snow just sets me thinking
'bout the way your smile shines upon your face.
And I know this ain't the last beer I'll be drinking
Before I reach my final resting place
Oh, i...

[Chorus:]

... Wish that I was in your arms a' sleeping,
Dreaming of the sweet love we just made,
But I'm runnin' down this mountain pass at midnight,
Wishin' I was in your arms again.

Oh my wheels are running hard against this mountain,
I finally crossed the archuleta line.
Another hour and I'll be with my darlin'
To dry those lonesome tears that she's been cryin'
But i...

[Chorus:]

I'm runnin' down this mountain pass at midnight;
Those truckers, they all flash their lights at me.
This highway ain't the very best companion,
'cause I know there's somewhere else I'd rather be.
Oh, i...

[Chorus:]

I am runnin' down this mountain pass at midnight,
Wishin' I was in your arms again.
