"Hillbilly highway" was the term used for the Appalachian diaspora to industrial cities in the Midwest and elsewhere and the for the highways that took them there. Hillbilly Highway is the (autobiographical?) story of a grandfather leaving the coal mines for work in Detroit. The father heads back down that hillbilly highway to Houston for work. The son and narrator rambling the hillbilly highways as a musician.

Hillbilly Highway is a song near and dear to my soul. I've drove a loaded-down u-haul up that hillbilly highway to Chicago, back to Appalachia, and down to Houston. The song itself is a seamless blend of lyric and melody. Everything about yells the road and a loaded-down truck. Earle keens "hilllbiiiilly hiiiiighwaaaay" with the whine of the open road.
