Lyrics for the Day – Nothin’ But The Wheel

Another classic from the J Geils Band – Peter Wolf

When I’m passed on the boulevards
Out here underneath the stars
I’ve been flyin’ past the houses, farms and fields
Leavin’ all I know back home
Rushin’ through the cold night air
I’m holdin’ on to nothin’ but the wheel
Stayin’ clear of the interstate
I’m seekin’ out those old two lanes
An’ tryin’ to explain the way I feel
Till all at once it’s half past three
An’ it’s down to the trust and me
An’ I’m holdin’ on to nothing but the wheel
I’ve been tryin’ to drive you off my mind
Let it that way be
I can leave it all behind
An’ 41 goes on and on
An’ the lights go winding in the dawn
An’ the sky’s the color now of polished steel
An’ the only thing I know for sure
You don’t want me anymore
Then I’m holdin’ on to nothing but the wheel
All right
Come on

I’ve been tryin’ to drive you off my mind
An’ let it that way baby
I can leave it all behind
An’ the only thing I know for sure
Is you don’t want me anymore
An’ I’m holdin’ on to nothing but the wheel
An’ I’m holdin’ on to nothing but the wheel

Gettin’ down old 41
An’ 41 takes on and on
An’ the lights go winding in the dawn
An’ I’m holdin’ on in the corner, yeah
I’m holdin’ on, holdin’ on, holdin’ on, holdin’ on
An’ the only thing I know for sure
Is you don’t want me anymore
An’ I’m holdin’ on to nothin’ but the wheel
Oh yeah
Come on
