Ride

Ride-by Chickenbone Slim-Copyright 2020
I could see those neon lights
From half a mile away
I’ve been rolling due west
ever since the break of day
hate the thought
my baby might have to wait
I could smell that ice cold beer
as I rolled on by
I sure got the money
I just don’t got the time
That sweet little woman
waiting on down the line
We’re gonna ride, ride, ride
Like a fast freight train on the downhill slide
We’re gonna ride, ride, ride
keep on rolling till the morning light
My sweet little woman
is waiting on down the line
Like a compass pointing north
Hound dog on the scent
I gotta get to her
I know she’s heaven sent
made this dumb man smart
made this sinner repent
John Lee just tells the truth
My dashboard lights turn blue,
I know where I’m going
I know what I’m gonna do
gonna split the desert
try to break on through
We’re gonna ride, ride, ride
Like a midnight train on the downhill side
We’re gonna ride, ride, ride
Keep on rolling til the morning light
My sweet little woman is waiting on down the line
I roll into Ocean Beach
smell of kelp so sweet
The rise that morning
the best I’ve ever seen
no time to waste
My baby’s been waiting on me
Half a block to go
In my heart I know
She’s waiting there for me
waiting in a bungalow
gonna pull the shades
gonna turn the lights down low
We’re gonna ride, ride, ride
like a midnight train
on the downhill side
We’re gonna ride, ride, ride
Keep on riding till the morning light
my sweet little woman waiting on down the line
Ocean Beach fog like a blanket on my mind
Need to see those eyes-kiss those lips of wine
