What a strange long trip....
Compiled by offramp
--*--

Truckin' got my chips cashed in Keep truckin', like the do-dah man Together, more or less in line just keep truckin' on

Arrows of neon and flashing marquees out on Main Street Chicago, New York, Detroit and it's all on the same street Your typical city involved in a typical daydream Hang it up and see what tomorrow brings

Dallas, got a soft machine Houston, too close to New Orleans New York got the ways and means But just won't let you be, oh no

Most of the cats that you meet on the street speak of true love Most of the time they're sittin' and cryin' at home One of these days they know they better be goin' Out of the door and down on the street all alone
