My only other guess would be The Foo Fighters - but can only think of a couple of songs - Monkey Wrench, Learning to Fly

Thanks Carole. I tend to go with the next song I hear on the radio that I think might be well known - and this one is no different..

"You've been a'messin' where you shouldn't 've been a'messin'
And now someone else is getting all your best"

Darn - just got it as I re-read the clue. Jill has it right - C W McCall - Convoy (I hate to admit but I own a copy of that - inherited from my dad as he was a trucker!)

More clues I think.

First line of the first verse:

I am so high, I can hear heaven

The song is the soundtrack to the 2002 film about a Marvel comic book character.
