I’ll Take The Wheel

Nothin' in Charlotte for a man and his family
So we packed it all up in the car
All through Kentucky, no sign of help wanted
Now we're nowhere in Arkansas

But I’m still beside you, my head in this map
The sun’s comin’ up and there’s no turning back

Baby, I'll take the wheel for a while
You put your head down and try not to worry
No need to put on that smile
No one could blame you for being discouraged
Now sleep for a few hundred miles
I'll take the wheel
I'll take the wheel for a while

Maybe we’ll find us a nice town in Texas
And won’t need to roam anymore
Or stay on this highway ‘til we run out of exits
And sleep on the western shore

When you make a new life it’s a struggle at first
But I said I’d hang on for better or worse

Honey, I'll take the wheel for a while
You put your head down and try not to worry
No need to put on that smile
No one could blame you for being discouraged
Now sleep for a few hundred miles
I'll take the wheel for a while

No one can see what’s on the road ahead
No one can give you a short cut instead

I'll take the wheel for a while...
