Let us be lovers, we`ll Marry our fortunes together I`ve got some real estate Here in my bag So we bought a pack of Cigarettes and Mrs. Wagner pies And walked off to look for America

Cathy, I said, as we boarded A Greyhound in Pittsburgh Michigan seems like A dream to me now It took me four days to Hitchhike from Saginaw I`ve gone to look for America Laughing on the bus Playing games with the faces She said the man in the Gabardine suit was a spy I said, be careful His bowtie is really a camera Toss me a cigarette I think there`s one in my raincoat We smoked the last one an hour ago So, I looked at the scenery She read her magazine And the moon rose Over an open field Cathy, I`m lost, I said, though I knew she was sleeping I`m empty and aching And I don`t know why Counting the cars on The New Jersey Turnpike They`ve all come to look for America All come to look for America
