Lyrics

It's gonna get hotter before it cools down
Summer gets bad in a little southern town
Folks get mad and lose their temper
And it stays that way till the first of November

Power blacks out and the town goes dark
A man gets knifed for a cutting remark
So if you feel like you're about to explode
You can let it all out on Nowhere Road

Lyrics continue below...

If I could be anywhere in the world right now
I'd be on Nowhere Road
No one could find me, no one would care
But I'd be there, yes I'd be there

Nowhere Road, you can hide your face
Nowhere Road, where your secret is safe
But if you wanna get lost so no one will know
Then Nowhere Road's where you gotta go

Twenty-two men, everyone of them armed
Looking to find who was it torched that barn
They don't call it revenge, just back porch justice
And the women peak out to see what all the fuss is

Got a suspect hanging from a lower branch
Another face down in a muddy trench
And the third shot dead in the cab of his Ford
Parked due north of Nowhere Road

If I could be anywhere in the world right now
I'd be on Nowhere Road
No one could find me, no one would care
But I'd be there, yes I'd be there

Nowhere Road, you can hide your face
Nowhere Road, where your secret is safe
But if you wanna get lost so no one will know
Then Nowhere Road's where you gotta go

Well the preacherman's daughter and the janitor's son
Had a dangerous romance so they're on the run
Sneeking around to keep it on the sly
But her pappa found out and they were caught in her lie

So they packed a little sack full of pictures and shirts
Bid a hasty goodbye as much as it hurts
No one saw them disappear 'cause they didn't leave a note
But I thought I saw them running down Nowhere Road

If I could be anywhere in the world right now
I'd be on Nowhere Road
No one could find me, no one would care
But I'd be there, yes I'd be there

Nowhere Road, you can hide your face
Nowhere Road, where your secret is safe
But if you wanna get lost so no one will know
Then Nowhere Road's where you gotta go

Nowhere Road, you can hide your face
Nowhere Road, where your secret is safe
But if you wanna get lost so no one will know
Then Nowhere Road's where you gotta go

Nowhere Road, Nowhere Road
But if you wanna get lost so no one will know
Then Nowhere Road's where you gotta go

Nowhere Road, Nowhere Road
Nowhere Road, Nowhere Road's where you gotta go
