Lyrics of Truckin'

Truckin' got my chips cashed in
Keep truckin' like the dooh dah man
Together more or less in line just keep truckin' on home
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 that you meet on the streets speak of true love
Most of the time they're sittin' and cryin' at home
One of these days they know they gotta get goin'
Out of the door and down on the street all alone
Truckin' like the doo dah man once told me you got to play your hand
Sometimes the cards ain't worth a damn if you don't lay 'em down
Sometimes the light's all shinin' 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
Livin' on reds vitamin C and cocaine
All a friend can say is ain't it a shame
Truckin' up to buffalo been thinkin' you got to mellow slow
Takes time you pick a place to go
And just keep truckin' on home
Sittin' and starin' out of the hotel window
Got the 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 bowlin' pin
Knocked down it get to wearin' thin they just won't let you be
You're sick of hangin' around and you'd like to travel
Get tired of travelin' you want to settle down
I guess they can't revoke your soul for tryin'
Get out of the door and light out and look all around
Sometimes the light's all shinin' on me other times I can barely see
Lately it occurs to me what a long strange trip it's been
Truckin' I'm a goin' home woah woah baby back where I belong
Back home sit down and patch my bones and get back truckin' on home
