Lyrics

Verse 1
She stopped and blew a kiss at the crosswalk
To people in the street who only frowned
Hurried into work to post her notice
?Sorry boss... I?m leaving town?

Now some might say she lost her head that day
But in her heart she knew she couldn?t stay

Chorus
When the open road, called Hanna
She dropped her lipstick in the sink
She listened to the notion
To put her wheels in motion
Threw out the map and did what she was told
By the open road

Verse 2
She had her parents crying at the postcard
?Please don?t worry, your baby?s fine
I?m finally seeing clouds for the first time
Cowboy hats and cantaloupe on the vine?

?And where I?m headed, Lord I wish I knew
But every mile, I think of you?

Chorus (Abbreviated)
When the open road, called Hanna
She dropped her lipstick in the sink
She listened to the notion
To put her wheels in motion
Threw out the map and did what she was told...

Bridge
Till the car broke down on an open road
By a young man farming a field of gold
Now children sing
On a front porch swing
About the day that God made... a family

Chorus (Modulated with EDIT)
When the open road, called Momma
She dropped her lipstick in the sink
She listened to the notion
To put her wheels in motion
Threw out the map and did what she was told

Chorus (with EDIT)
By the open road...
She met Daddy
By the open road...
She fell in love
She listened to the notion
The heavens put in motion
When the car broke down she found herself at home
By the open road

Tag
By the open road
By the open road
