I was wondering the other day how many miles of road were in every state, and guessed that Texas must be the highest. It turns out it is, according to this list of the road mileage of every state. It’s about 70% more than the runner-up, California. After TX and CA, it’s Illinois, Kansas, Minnesota, and Missouri.

  1. Well, my wife returns from taking
    My little girl to school
    She got beads of perspiration
    As she tries to keep her cool

    She says that mess it don’t get no better
    There’s gonna come a day
    Someone’s gonna get killed out there
    And I turn to her and say


    She says, “what?”
    I said, “Texas”
    She says, “what?”
    “They’ve got big long roads out there”
