I left the West coast watched the palm trees wave goodbye
It was a hard drive had to say goodbye to you
I stopped for some Coca-Cola and some corn nuts too
I thought about turnin' back I already missed you

If you need me burn it up bend the rules leave right away
If you need me take a four lane headed my way
Take a bus, take a plane , take a car, take a train
Take a bike, hitch a ride you decide
If you need me you know where I'll be in Tennessee

Goin' through my boxes found a photograph
Where you're sittin' on a mule in Mexico
Picture perfect point of view
An then a postcard dropped from a book you gave me on my birthday
An it hit me, baby

If you need me burn it up bend the rules leave right away
If you need me take a four lane headed my way
Take a bus, take a plane, take a car, take a train
Take a bike, hitch a ride you decide

If you need me leave L.A. we'll take it day by day
All alone, here I am by the phone
Understand it's not too late what are you waiting' for?
If you need me you know where I'll be, yeah in Tennessee

Well, it's a Sunday mornin' I awake it's just another lonely day
I lie in bed and wonder how long is this gonna take
Then I think to myself will I ever get a break?
Did I make a big mistake?

Well, I light the fire, I draw the bubble bath
Hey, you do the math
It's just me an I'm without you
What else could I do

If you need me burn it up bend the rules leave right away
If you need me take a four lane headed my way
Take a bus, take plane, take a car, take a train
Take a bike, hitch a ride you decide
If you need me you know where I'll be in Tennessee
