Queen Of The Highway
by Jim Morrison & Robbie Krieger
© Doors Music Company ASCAP

She was a princess, queen of the Highway.
Sign on the road said "Take us to Madre."
No one can save her save the Blind Tiger.
He was a monster, black dressed in leather.
She was a princess, Queen of the Highway.

Now they are wedded, she is a good girl.
Naked as children out in a meadow.
Naked as children, wild as can be.
Soon to have offspring
Start it all over, start it all over.

American boy, American girl
The most beautiful people in the world.
Son of a frontier, indian swirl
Dance into the midnight whirlpool
Formless.
Hope we can continue a little while longer.

Nice, I like that. This is the verse I always recite when I run my car at the dragstrip, and I did like wise with the Busa when I ran it this week. Just superstitious. 5 stars to anyone that knows what poem it came from. Hope I dont mess it up, im pretty sure im dead on the wording.

And more than that-a furlong on-why, there!
What bad use was that engine for, that wheel,
Or brake, not wheel-that harrow fit to reel
Men's bodies out like silk? with all the air
Of Tophet's tool, on earth left unaware,
Or brought to sharpen its rusty teeth of steel.

Mine is not from the Doors, its a classic. That verse is accually from "Childe Roland to the Dark Tower Came" by Robert Browning. (OMG a biker that reads....lmao) I was turned on to him by Stephen Kings novels of the Dark Tower series. Very interesting poem though by Robert Browning, for those of you that like that stuff it is worth a read.
