Lyrics

1. I'm thinking 'bout that highway of tears
All of them murdered women through the years
400 miles from Rupert to Prince,
First one in fall, and many more since
I'm thinking 'bout that highway of tears

2. I'm thinking 'bout that long twisted road
Young women walking alone in the cold
Hitchin' a ride, homeward bound,
Half of them have never been found
I'm thinking 'bout that long twisted road

3. I'm thinking 'bout the ones left behind
Family and friends with shattered lives
Nowhere to turn, no comfort here,
Memories burn year on year
I'm thinking 'bout the ones left behind

4. I'm thinking 'bout that highway of tears
All of them murdered women through the years
400 miles from Rupert to Prince,
How many more to add to the list
I'm thinking 'bout that highway of tears
I'm thinking 'bout that highway of tears
