The Doobie Brothers – Cannonball Lyrics

It’s cold outside and I know it’s time
Pack up my heart it’s a long hard ride
There’s a wind that’s blowin’ such a lonely prayer
Gotta keep goin’ now I’m halfway there

Faces in the windows of the cars drivin’ fast
Are holding onto memories and the moments flying past
I got ten more miles, and I’m there at last

I’m a steel horse runnin’ yeah my world keeps turnin’
I’ll follow this road where my heart’s still yearnin’
Still got the fire, and the flame keeps burnin’
I’m a cannonball shootin’ down the line
Soul searchin’, woah oh
I’m a cannonball

Well I stopped all alone at the top of the hill
I looked across the valley at the world so still
All the friends I’ve been missin’ and the ones I love
They shine like the diamonds from the sky above

Faces in the windows of the cars drivin’ fast
Are holding onto memories and the moments flying past
I got ten more miles, and I’m there at last

I’m a steel horse runnin’ yeah my world keeps turnin’
I’ll follow this road where my heart’s still yearnin’
Still got the fire, and the flame keeps burnin’
I’m a cannonball shootin’ down the line
Soul searchin’, woah oh
I’m a cannonball
Soul searchin’

Well it hurts inside, but I know I’m fine
Time to pick up the pieces, life’s a long hard ride
There’s a wind that’s blowin’ such a lonely prayer
I gotta keep goin’ now I’m almost there

I’m a steel horse runnin’ yeah my world keeps turnin’
I’ll follow this road where my heart’s still yearnin’
Still got the fire, and the flame keeps burnin’
I’m a cannonball shootin’ down the line
Soul searchin’, woah oh
I’m a cannonball
Soul searchin’, woah oh
I’m a cannonball

I’m a cannonball
