It depends upon the lane that you're in.

The right one or the wrong one my friend

The right way and you'll get there alive

The wrong way and you just won't survive.

Over the rivers while traveling at night

Take caution to get where you have to go

Beware of the mountains up on the right

And to your left, the valleys down below.

Stay on the road between the yellow and the white lines

Keep your eyes open and pay attention to all the signs

The turn lefts, the turn rights, the up hills and inclines

The stop a heads, the go a heads, how do you keep a sane mind.

Through the dark woods while in the middle of the day

Turn on the headlights and don't lose your way

Sunlight, moonlight, sleet, rain or snow

Good weather, bad weather, nobody knows.

You're in control of your life while at the wheel

Mind drifts, fall asleep, screeching tires, bending steel

To late on the scraping mountain, a head on collision

End over end, down in the valley, to late to make a decision.

Didn't see the deer that ran across the road

The truck driver missed it but lost his load

Thank the Lord that you were in bed dreaming

Just a nightmare, now you can stop your screaming.

It depends upon what mind you're in.

The right one or the wrong one my friend

The right one and you'll get there alive

The wrong one and you just won't survive.
