Song Description

Ten Miles 'till Empty is a Country Rock song that tells the tale of a factory worker that loses his job as well as the one he loves. The story takes place on the highway as he leaves his troubles behind. Along the way he contemplates his reasons for leaving.

Story Behind the Song

The inspiration for this song stems from the common theme of American workers that have lost their jobs due to offshoring.

Lyrics

There's two hundred miles of highway between you and me
And two hundred empty reasons that I had to leave
I'm not sure where I'm headin'
But I can tell you where I've been
This preacher on the radio, he's my only friend

That day they closed the factory, and sent my job overseas
Was surely the beginning of the end of you and me
Didn't have the courage to tell you
Just couldn't let you down
Instead I kept it bottled up so you would stick around

Cruisin' down this highway
Carrying my sadness away
Searchin' for one last reason
One last reason to stay
Two hundred miles behind me
Now I'm finally free
I've got twenty dollars in my pocket
And ten miles 'till empty
Ten miles to empty

These headlights on the highway are makin' me go blind
As they fade off in the distance, leavin' hope for us behind
There's no time for regret my love
Just please remember me
My heavy heart can't take no more, there's nothin' left to bleed

Cruisin' down this highway
Carrying my sadness away
Searchin' for one last reason
One last reason to stay
Two hundred miles behind me
Now I'm finally free
I've got twenty dollars in my pocket
And ten miles 'till empty
Ten miles to empty

Though we walk on different paths, we found common ground
There could be a silver lining if I could turn this truck around
My ignorance has blinded me
I know what I must do
You're the only one for me, I'm headin' home to you

Racin' down this highway
Carrying my love back to you
Searchin' for the words I need
The words to see us through
Two hundred miles before me
To where I need to be
I've got twenty dollars in my pocket
And ten miles 'till empty
Ten miles to empty
Ten miles to empty
Ten miles to empty
