L.A. FREEWAY


go pack up all your dishes • make note of all good wishes
say goodbye to the landlord for me : sons of bitches they always bore me
throw out those L.A. papers and that moldy box of vanilla wafers
adios to all this concrete • gonna get me some dirt road back street

here's to you old skinny dennis : you're the one I think I will miss
I can hear that old bass singing deep and low like a gift you're bringing
go play it one more time now • gotta give it all we can now
I believe every word you're saying • keep on : just keep on playing

put the pink slip in the mailbox and leave the key in the old front door lock
they will find it likely as not with all the things that we have forgot
oh my lady don't you cry now • love's a gift truly handmade
and we got something to believe in and you know it is time we're leaving

... if I could just get off of that L.A. freeway without being killed or caught
down the road in a cloud of smoke for some land • some land that I ain't bought
if I could just get off of that L.A. freeway without being killed or caught ...
