I been out on the road with my thumb in the air
I'm a long way from home but I just don't care
The dust from the road makes it dry in my mouth
When it's cold up north, that's when I head south

'Cause I been trying to, trying to get away, yeah
Trying to, trying to get away, yeah

Passed through New York just the other day
The smog was bad but not as bad as L.A.
Sometimes I wonder what the world's coming to
And sometimes I wonder what I'm gonna do

'Cause I been trying to, trying to get away, yeah
I been trying to, trying to get away, yeah

Out on the road with my thumb in the air
I'm a long way from home but I just don't care
The dust from the road makes it dry in my mouth
When it's cold up north, that's when I head south

Trying to, trying to get away
Trying to, trying to get away
Trying to, trying to get away
Trying to, trying to get away

'Cause I been trying to, trying to get away, yeah
I been trying to, trying to get away, yeah

'Cause I been trying to, trying to get away, yeah, yeah, yeah
