Pitney, Gene - Trans-Canada Highway Lyrics




Met a woman in Vancouver
Nearly drove me outta my mind
She told me she was looking for a man that could satisfy

She was married to a law man
And life was passing her by
In a two room shack
And now she wanted to fly

You know a man of hunger is a man of fear
And being hungry for your love
Is being hungry for my blood
A jealous man can make a big man run
And I am running like the devil through the morning sun

Trans-Canada highway, take me home
Trans-Canada highway, take me home, take me home

Moved out of town in a hurry
He's chasing me mile after mile
I'm driving 'coz I'm knowing that I've got his lady with me

I see a sign for Toronto
Almost making me smile
The border's in sight, I think I'm gonna be free

You know a man of hunger is a man of fear
And being hungry for you love
Is being hungry for my blood
A jealous man can make a big man run
And I am running like the devil for the morning sun

Trans-Canada highway, take me home
Trans-Canada highway, take me home, take me home

The morning paper had a photograph
Of his burnt out wreck and it made me laugh
I told the lady, but the lady ran
And now the papers say, I'm a wanted man

On the Trans-Canada highway, take me home
Trans-Canada highway, take me home, take me home

Trans-Canada highway, take me home...

    Underrated

  2. Pike Meredith

    I have many CDs with all of Gene's memorable hits but for some unknown reason this song isn't on any of them so it's great hearing this & seeing him at the same time. Gee he looks great here in his white suit. I'm sure he'd still be making hits today.

    maxine Gray

    Hello Pike. I see you found this clip. Early January 2020 a Gene Pitney Gold Album was released and immediately reached No 30 in the UK Official Top 100 Albums Chart so yes, Gene Pitney is still reaching the charts today!

  3. Bernie Brennan

    He had an unmistakable beautiful voice! Sang some classic songs! Loved his catchy songs! Bernie from Perth Western Australia.

  4. Pauline Williams

    A unique voice like the Big-O. I like voices that are unusual. Good. Different

  5. PAUL THOMSON

    A CASE OF GENDER RECLASSIFICATION - WELL BEFORE THE CHELSEA MANNING CASE.....

  6. Alexander Brown

    So, he drives from Vancouver to Toronto to get away from this dude.

    Bloke could’ve driven 60 km to the Peace Arch.

    Ursula peters

    This song is probably what made me emigrate to Canada.17 years later on a trip to England I went to one of his concerts and he dedicated it to me

    Alexander Brown

    @Ursula petersI lived in Vancouver for a year on a working holiday before moving back to Australia. I miss it and will probably look to permanent immigration down the track.

  7. Margaret Campbell

    I remember seeing him perform and the strength and range of his voice was amazing

  8. Paula Ashley

    Gorgeous Man Gorgeous Voice ,Love Him ,gone too soon .Paula xxx

    Have always loved his voice and the casual nature of his singing style. Never tire of him, his music or the many memories that stir within me.

  15. Rolf Willebrands

    A great tune by a man with such a unique and beautiful voice, Such great music.

  16. Awesome Welles

    That naughty stagehand once again dropped some superglue on the set

  17. Noel Sowerby

    Who would ever know in 1975 I would move from New Zealand to Canada in 1999 and live in Calgary and travel on the Trans Canada Highway almost every day, and live very close to it. Thank You Gene Pitney, you will always be Number 1.

  18. Tonithenightowl

    I am a HUGE Pitney fan and I don't remember this song. I doubt it was played in the States much. What a shame bc it's a great song and Gene nails it as only Gene can.
