Everybody's lookin' for some way in
I'm lookin' for some way out
I've been wastin' my time standin' in line
If this is what it's all about

All I got is a job that I don't like
And a woman that don't understand
So tonight at the bar I'll get in my car
And take off for the promise land

Drinkin' and dreamin', knowin' damn well I can't go
I'll never see Texas, L.A. or Old Mexico
But here at this table, I'm able to leave it behind
Drink 'til I'm dreamin', a thousand miles out of my mind

This suit and this tie, is just a disguise
This ain't really me
Some people are born to be tied down
Some people are born to be free

When I look down the road she don't know
How it gets under my skin
She's got my body but my heart and soul
Are out there ridin' the wind

Drinkin' and dreamin', knowin' damn well I can't go
I'll never see Texas, L.A. or Old Mexico
But here at this table, I'm able to leave it behind
Drink 'til I'm dreamin', a thousand miles out of my mind

Drinkin' and dreamin', knowin' damn well I can't go
I'll never see Texas, L.A. or Old Mexico
