Story Behind the Song

an abbreviated history of rock and roll

Lyrics

OH THERE WAS A HIGHWAY
OUT BEHIND THE FREEWAY
THERE WERE THESE SOUNDS MILES FROM MY HOUSE
COMING THROUGH THE GRASS OUT BEHIND THE CLOUDS
TURNING EVERYTHING TO ROCK RIGHT BEFORE THE CRASH
THAT A'INT HOW IT USED TO BE

BACK THEN I WAS A BAD MAN
WORKING FOR THE DOWNTOWN MAN
I TOOK DOLLARS RIGHT OFF OF THE STREET
TURNED THEM INTO WORDS
AND I GAVE THEM BACK FOR FREE
THE MORE I HAD THE LESS I FELT JUST LIKE MYSELF
WHEN I COME BACK HOME I'M GOING TO
TELL IT TO MY FACE
THAT A'INT HOW IT USED TO BE

THERE WAS A SHEET OF RAIN COMING ACROSS THE PLAIN
STRETCHED OUT FOR MILES
STRETCHED OUT FOR MILES
STRETCHED OUT FOR MILES

I WASN'T READY FOR NO BIG TIME
WASN'T READY FOR THE COME BACK AND
SEE ME WHEN YOU CAN
YOU KNOW THE SOUL OF THE GYPSY RUNS FREE
BUT THERE A'INT NOTHING FREE ABOUT IT
YOU CAN SELL YOUR HEART ABOUT AS FAST AS A CAR
TELL 'EM YOU WANT CASH MAN OR YOU'RE GOING TO WALK
RIGHT OUT THE DOOR
RIGHT OUT THE DOOR
THAT A'INT HOW IT USED TO BE
