Story Behind the Song

Driving to Nashville, I noticed the halfway mark in the car. I had a great time as I always do, and on the way home, I saw the same sign only I was going in the other direction...

Lyrics

Somewhere Outside Roanoke
Miller ASCAP 2011

I got a man in Pennsylvania
And a dream in Tennessee
Either one without the other
Is a place I never want to be
He's got a job he can't let go of
But he knows I need that ride
He helps me load the car
With a suitcase and an old guitar
And kisses me like it's the last time

6 hours through the 12 hour drive
I look up and see an old familiar sign
Somewhere outside Roanoke
It hits me like the punch line of a private joke
No matter which way I go
I'm only halfway home
Somewhere outside Roanoke

After a week it's time to say good bye
To singing my own song
With every breath of Southern air I know that this is where
I belong
But all that changes driving eighty
On the Northbound interstate
I call to say I'm on my way I don't know when I'll get there
He says "I'll wait"

6 hours through the 12 hour drive
I look up and see an old familiar sign
Somewhere outside Roanoke
It hits me like the punch line of a private joke
No matter which way I go
I'm only halfway home
Somewhere outside Roanoke

I feel an equal pull
My glass is half empty
And half full

Somewhere outside Roanoke
It's my private joke
No matter which way I go
I'm only halfway home
Only halfway home
Somewhere outside Roanoke
