GARDEN STATE PARKWAY BLUES

Got a woman lives across the tracks
Whoa lady won't you come rub my back
Yeah you know I love her

I got a woman who lives across the town
Whoa baby woman won't you show how you put'em down
Know that I dig it now
Show'em how you put'em down
Know that I dig it now
Show'em how you put'em down
Know that I dig it

Good morning
Vitamin B1, Niacin, 5 percent iron
How can I help but win?
My very best friend, when I get up in the morning
Whoa my Kellogs Cornflakes are my very best friend
And I dont have to look very hard
Cause right inside is your very special 3D baseball card
Yeaaaahh, whoa whoa

Well I get up in the morning
And I say "Well Goodbye Hon"
Now you make sure the kids dont forget to take their lunch"
I clean myself up and I stumble out the door
Into my garage and I jump into my old Ford
But the damn thing it don't wanna start
But I dont care, what do I care?
It's really got a heart

I got the Garden State Parkway Blues
Early in the morning, hits you without warning
Going to the job, fighting off the road hogs
Punch in at nine, punch out at five
Punch in at nine, punch out at five
Punch in at nine, punch out at five
Punch in at nine, punch out at five
Boss he thinks I'm crazy
And says "Son, why are you so lazy?
And if you wont leave me alone, I'm gonna mosie on home
Aint no, yes, no, no son of a bitch
Punch in at nine, punch out at five
Punch in at nine, punch out at five
Punch in at nine, punch out at five
Punch in at nine, punch out at five

Well I work all day, I make terrible pay
I get home and I just can't get to sleep
Yeah my woman gives me something Lord that God of mine hummin'
But it don't work I'm just too weak
I got electric bills, doctor bills, baby bills, just about everything but a dollar bill
And I haven't even paid my rent yet
I got 12 more payments on my car, 6 more on the guitar
Yeah now my mama wants a new dress, Lord what a damn mess
Don't know what I'm gonna do
But I'm sick and tired of hearing about all the damn bills
I'm tired about worrying about them
Yeah
Alright
Hey

Well I dont know where I'm goin' and I don't understand but thats alright
Because the only thing I feel is the touch of your hand in the night
Cars on the Parkway they pull up and stare
Ask me where I'm goin' and I tell them that I'm there
Yeah and I just don't even care

The people I meet are all hip to the latest scene
They sit around reading Rolling Stone magazine
I ask how they can sit so sweetly serene
While there's thousands of places that they have never seen
They have never been
Goin' back, goin' back, goin' back

Signs on the highway dont mean nothing
Two-eyed monsters keep on coming
Don't know where I'm goin' but I just keep running
Away, away

You know life ain't so easy
Life ain't always so sweet
Aint' got nowhere to go home
Nothing to eat
They got holes in thier shoes
Clear on through to your feet
Sleeping on the cold cement floor
With no place else to sleep
Sure can be a drag sometimes, oh it just ain't no fun

You know I used to tell myself
Oh some day you're gonna be driving a big cadillac
And you'll be attending all them special business office luncheons
And have a pretty secretary to sit on your lip
But as I got older I just did'nt want that
Oh and as the years came on I got old anyway, babe
Well I always wanted to travel
Oh to Europe and France
Watch the changing of the guards at Buckingham Palace
Go on to Sweden, find out what their tanning secret is
You said you'll do all those things you wanted to do sometime
Theres a young cowboy lives on the range
Hmmmm, maybe I'll take a cab on down to Spain
Always wanted to be like Douglas Fairbanks Jr.
Fighting all them pirates on the Spanish Main
Whoaaaaaa
Well maybe I'll get myself a black leather jacket
And a big Harley Davidson motorcycle yeah
Just like Sonny Berger
Maybe I'll get myself a sawn-off pool cue too, to meet the occasion
When I've done all the things I would like to do
Maybe I'll take one last trip
Ohh off to never never land yeah
Yeah with the lost boys and Tinkerbell
You know I always wanted to learn how to fly
You know I always thought I could do it
Oh but travellin' ain't no fun if you've got to travel alone
Sure does feel good to get there
Yeah I'm gonna be there
Ohh yeah
I don't wanna hear about my bills
How many men killed in Vietnam

Gonna take it one more time around
Hey!
He gets up in the morning as the suns about to rise
And with his guitar singing he goes down upon the green hillside
He sings about a land he said he seen where there's never any night
And sunlight soul just dance and sing before your very eyes
Sing it to me
His father is the sun and his mother is the sky
And today he's to be wed to the wind, he knows not to reason why, yeah
For he is the mountain child
For he is the mountain child
Yeahh yeahhhhhhh
In his cloudy chariot he takes his brand new bride
On into the house of stone down upon the green hill side
There they stay for a year and a day, hands held side to side
They will decieve the daughter who will be the rain to clean your dusty mind

And when the dew has fallen down upon the earthy home
They will set sail on a clipper ship never to return
On into the blood red horizon where the fire of love that still burns
And the beauty of the perfect lover will turn and turn and turn
And the beauty of the perfect lover will turn and turn and turn
You know the beauty of the perfect lover will turn and turn and turn

He gets up in the morning as the suns about to rise
And with his guitar singing he goes down upon the green hillside
He sings about a land he said he seen where there's never any night
And sunlight soul just dance and sing before your very eyes
And sunlight soul just dance and sing before your very eyes
And sunlight soul just dance and sing before your very eyes
La la la la la la oh can't you hear him singing
La la la la la la oh can't you hear him singing
La la la la la la oh can't you hear him singing
La la la la la la oh can't you hear him singing
La la la la la la oh can't you hear him singing
Oh yeah
Unhappy man, yes I am
I wanna bag yeah
Make us feel so good
Oh woah woah woah
Bring it down, bring it down
Listen to rhythm of the band, bring the rhythm from your head to your toes and down to your hands
Listen to rhythm of the band, bring the rhythm from your head to your toes and down to your hands
Listen to rhythm of the band, bring the rhythm from your head to your toes and down to your hands
Listen to rhythm of the band, bring the rhythm from your head to your toes and down to your hands
Ok ready, stop!
You can do it by yourself now
Listen to rhythm of the band, bring the rhythm from your head to your toes and down to your hands
Listen to rhythm of the band, bring the rhythm on down
We're gonna come and take you for one more ride now
So get ready now
We're gonna take you for one more ride now so fasten your seatbelts hey!
