lyrics

A hundred miles from Paducah and we killed the stereo
to listen to the tires creaking down that dusty road
We weighed down that little flatbed with all the booze that we could pack
Oh lord, New York, I ain't ever coming back

Oh yeah! I’m doing fine
Oh yeah! Another state line
flying across the windshield like the endless march of time
Oh yeah! We drove all night
Oh yeah! The end's in sight
and I'll see you in Nashville if it takes my whole damn life

We dropped the stakes and set up camp in that Putnam County sun
Fired up the grill and drank away our midnight run
Kicked the dust, hit the bottle and heard them people cheer
then set off toward the stage lights with backpacks chock-full of beer

We got the ways, we got the means, got cans of Busch and cans of beans
We got shirtless good ol' boys passed out in plastic latrines
You just show me a thousand folks who know the way to act
Oh Lord, New York, I ain't ever coming back

Oh yeah! I'm doing fine
Oh yeah! The sun and moonshine
are flowing through the crowd like the endless march of time
Oh yeah! We drank all night
Oh yeah! No end in sight
and I'll see you in Cookeville if it takes my whole damn life

The rains came up from New Orleans and they flooded out the tents
Our tires sank as muddy roots entangled better sense
In the end we pushed that van uphill and faced the facts
Oh Lord, New York, I guess I'm coming back

Oh yeah! Had to resign
Oh yeah! We took it as a sign
falling from the sky signaling the end of time
Oh yeah! We left that night
Oh yeah! Our home's in sight
I'll see you back in Selkirk if it takes my whole damn life

So take me down to North Carolina
Roll me on out to Tennessee
I've been through heaven, hell, and high water
but right here, right now's the only place and time for me

We stumbled into Lebanon feeling half-past dead
We laid down our soaking dollar bills for a pizza and a bed
Now I got the ghost of Hank the 1st to guide me down the track
Oh Lord, New York, I can't wait to get back

Oh yeah! I'm doing fine
Oh yeah! Another state line
flying across the windshield like the endless march of time
Oh yeah! We drove all night
Oh yeah! The end's in sight
And I'll see you in Nashville if it takes my whole damn life
Oh yeah! We drove all night
Oh yeah! The end's in sight
And I'll see you in Nashville if it takes my whole damn life
