"Life is a Highway" is a song performed by Rascal Flatts in Cars near the start of the movie where Lightning McQueen and Mack are going to California.

The song is also featured in the Cars: Mater-National Championship video game for road races. Since July 9, 2014, the Cars unit in the Pixar Play Parade has been set to a cover version of the song.

Lyrics

(Whoo! Hmmm, yeah!)

Life's like a road that you travel on
When there's one day here an' the next day gone
Sometimes you bend, sometimes you stand
Sometimes you turn your back to the wind

There's a world outside every darkened door
Where blues won't haunt you anymore
Where brave are free an' lovers soar
Come ride with me to the distant shore

We won't hesitate
To break down the garden gate
There's not much time left today (yeah)

Life is a highway
I wanna ride it all night long
If you're going my way
Well, I wanna drive it all night long

Through all these cities an' all these towns
It's in my blood an' it's all around
I love you now like I loved you then
This is the road an' these are the hands
From Mozambique to those Memphis nights
The Khyber Pass to Vancouver's lights

Knock me down, an' back up again
You're in my blood
I'm not a lonely man

There's no load I can't hold
Road so rough, this I know
I'll be there when the light comes in
Just tell 'em we're survivors

Life is a highway
Well, I wanna ride it all night long
If you're going my way
I wanna drive it all night long (all night long)

(Ah, Gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme, yeah!)

Life is a highway
Well, I wanna ride it all night long
(Hmmmmm, yeah!)
If you're going my way (you're goin' my way)
I wanna drive it all night long (all night long)

There was a distance between you an' I (between you and I)
A misunderstanding once
But now we look it in the eye
Ooooohh, yeah!
(Mmmm, yeah)
[Instrumental]

There ain't no load that I can't hold
A road so rough, this I know
I'll be there when the light comes in
Tell 'em we're survivors

Life is a highway Well, I wanna ride it all night long (all night long, yeah)
If you're goin' my way
Well, I wanna drive it all night long

(Ah, gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme, yeah!)

Life is a highway (life is a highway)
I wanna ride it all night long
(Ooooo, yeah)
You're going my way (you're goin' my way)
I wanna drive it all night long (all night long, yeah)

(C'mon! Ah, gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme, yeah!)

Life is a highway
I wanna ride it all night long (yeah, I wanna drive it all night long, baby)
If you're goin' my way (you're goin' my way)
I wanna drive it all night long (all night long)
