Lyrics

Trucking, got my chips cashed in Keep trucking like the doodah man Together, more or less in line Just keep trucking 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 Most of the cats you meet On the street speak of true love Most of the time they`re Sitting and crying at home One of these days They know they gotta get going Out of the door and Down to the street all alone Trucking, like the doodah man Once told me you Got to play your hand Sometime, the cards Ain`t worth a dime If you don`t lay em down Sometimes the light`s All shining on me Other times I can barely see Lately it occurs to me What a long strange trip it`s been What in the world Ever became of sweet Jane She lost her sparkle You know she isn`t the same Living on reds Vitamin C and cocaine All a friend can say Is ain`t it a shame Trucking, up to Buffalo Been thinking You got to mellow slow Takes time, you Pick a place to go and Just keep trucking on Sitting and staring Out of a hotel window Got a tip they`re gonna Kick the door in again I`d like to get some sleep Before I travel But if you got a warrant I guess you`re gonna come in Busted, down on Bourbon Street Set up, like a bowling pin Knocked down, it Gets to wearing thin They just won`t let you be You`re sick of hanging around And you`d like to travel You`re tired of traveling You want to settle down I guess they can`t Revoke your soul for trying Get out of the door Light out and look all around Sometimes the light`s All shining on me Other times I can barely see Lately it occurs to me What a long strange trip it`s been Trucking, I`m going home Woah, woah, baby Back where I belong Back home, sit down And patch my bones And get back trucking on
