Really wish you would pick-up
I can see you sittin' there
Packin' things, deciding what to leave
Guess your gettin' kinda fed-up
And I know it don't seem fair
All the days and nights alone
Waiting by the telephone
I was always long gone...

[Chorus]
Here I am, callin' out from this old highway
From Route 59 north of New Orleans
Here I am, tryin' to make it home and I pray
That in spite of all your doubts
We might still work this whole thing out,
Here I am

The other day when I woke up
I could see you lyin' there
And I could tell you'd been cryin' in your sleep
I realize that I messed up
I'm gonna quit his job I swear
After fifteen years hauling heavy loads
From New York State down to Mexico
I'm on my way back...

[Chorus]
Here I am, callin' out from this old highway
From a run down truck stop in Tennessee
Here I am, tryin' to make it home and I pray
That in spite of all your doubts
We might still work this whole thing out
Here I am
Yeah, here I am

[Bridge]
He drops another quarter
In some roadside phone box, in West Virginia
Says, this stretch of blacktop's been an uphill climb
And it feel's like I been runnin' outta time
Can't you hear me?

[Chorus]
Here I am, callin' out from this old highway
White lines as far as I can see
Here I am, tryin' to make it home and I pray
That in spite of all your doubts
We might still work this whole thing out
Here I am
Yeah, here I am
Here I am
Here I am
