Pulled out of Fayetteville at midnight<br />
I had Georgia in my sites<br />
A thousand miles laid out before me<br />
A thousand miles to leave behind<br />
Little Rock came and went in darkness<br />
I-40 kept me headed east<br />
and as I crossed the Mississippi<br />
I&nbsp;could see&nbsp;the lights of Memphis streets<br />
<br />
<font color="#ffff99"><em>chorus</em><br />
</font>Just like a horse heads to the stable<br />
I felt the urge to be back home<br />
With my feet beneath my table<br />
and my mind at ease for once<br />
&nbsp;<br />
I thread the needle of Nashville traffic<br />
with the radio spinning country gold<br />
took 24 to Chattanooga<br />
'til the static finally took it's toll<br />
The lush green hills of north Georgia<br />
are just like welcome arms to me<br />
But rush hour in Atlanta<br />
Is the last place&nbsp;I wanna&nbsp;be<br />
<br />
<em><font color="#ffff99">repeat chorus</font></em><br />
<br />
Take me to my country home&nbsp;<br />
to the place I know I belong...hiway<br />
With the help of the Lord above<br />
take me to the ones I love...hiway</strong></font>
