lyrics

i got a ride
to the bus stop
bought a mickey
on my way back
man tells me
there's no way that
i can get to omaha
to find that girl
who broke my heart
(sol-yah!)

it leaves at noon
for 40 bucks
but all i got is 4 dimes
and a nickel bag
a dirty rag
a stick of gum
i'm stuck
(sol-yah!)
in the long run

like lodi on a winter day
but I won't stay
cuz love is callin'
(sol-yah!)
and i'm comin'

(the grid is broken
the tea is smokin'
there is a good time for me
my wire is hanging
from a dusty ceiling
i take no cars
that gots no tires)

got a dodge dart
that's made of rocks
a trolley car
that won't go far
my grampa's coughin'
dirt and spit
like blood and oil
on goodyear slicks
(sol-yah!)
hit the road, pal
from the counter to my face

(the time is leaving
that's right
the fire is breathing
too bright
you should just
steal this from that
yer feet is pretty
yer butt is shiny
now i should
wipe up my spit)

beat those shoes
all the way home
dry those eyes
quit yer cryin'
road is callin'
just forget it
cuz yer stuck here
cuz i said it
got my blazer
and my black shoes
they're shiny
and i don't mind it
the flare is blinding

(sol-yah!
seven trees
a silly boy
forget the leaves
a silly boy
i like the branches
you just wait
until the chairs don't let you sit
until the welts punch you back
a silly boy
a silly boy)

i got a ride
to the bus stop
bought a mickey
on my way back
man tells me
there's no way that
i can get to omaha
to find that girl
who broke my heart
(sol-yah!)

oh boy
