Performed by the Doobie Brothers in HD with stunning sound quality.

Written by Tom Johnston and originally released in the 1996 double live album, "Rockin' Down the Highway: The Wildlife Concert".

The Doobie Brothers improved their playing by performing live all over Northern California in 1970. They attracted a particularly strong following among local chapters of the Hells Angels and got a recurring gig at one of the bikers' favorite venues, the Chateau Liberte' in the Santa Cruz Mountains. Lyrics follow:

Got those highway blues, can't you hear my motor runnin'?
Flyin' down the road with my foot on the floor
All the way in town they can hear me comin'
Ford's about to drop, she won't do no more.

And I smell my motor burnin'
Underneath the hood is smoke
Can't stop, and I can't stop
Got to keep movin' on or I'll lose my mind.

Oh, rockin' down the highway
Oh, rockin' down the highway
Oh, rockin' down the highway
Oh, rockin' down the highway.

The highway patrol got his eyes on me
I know what he's thinkin' and it ain't good
I'm movin' so fast he can barely see me
Gonna lose that man, I know I should.

I gotta kick in my pedal
Make my ford move a little bit faster
Can't stop, and I can't stop
Got to keep movin' on or I'll lose my mind.

Oh, rockin' down the highway
Oh, rockin' down the highway
Good you know that
Oh, rockin' down the highway
Oh, rockin' down the highway.

Oh, rockin' down the highway
Oh, rockin' down the highway
Oh, rockin' down the highway
Oh, rockin' down the highway.
