Happy Lonely Boy


Verse 1
Freedom, I need some
Time to chip off all the rust
Anticipatin? one destination
Loneliness or bust
Lonely happy boy ?. Happy lonely boy

Gimme miles and days on them straightaways
?Til my rear-view is clear
There ain?t nothin? in my mirror
closer than it appears
Lonely happy boy ?. Happy lonely boy

Chorus? (first time instrumental)

Horsepower gimme miles-per-hour
Got will power to spare
Gonna leave this mess ?cuz there?s a loneliness
That I can?t wait to bear
Lonely happy boy ?. Happy lonely boy

Repeat chorus
Hey, Hey
Hey, Hey, Hey
Hey, Hey
Hey, Hey, Hey
I?m a happy lonely boy

Happy, lonely
Blowin? back some dust
