See America Right Lyrics

 

Written by:John Darnielle

 

I was driving up from Tampa

 

When the radiator burst

 

I was three sheets to the wind

A civilian saw me first

 

And then there was the cop

 

And then the children standing on the corner

 

Your love is like a cyclone in a swamp

 

And the weather's getting warmer

 

I was getting out of jail

 

Heading to the Greyhound

 

You said you'd hop on one yourself

And meet me on the way down

I was shaking way too hard to think

 

Dead on my feet about to drop

 

Went and got the case of vodka from a car

And walked the two miles to the bus stop

 

Got on the bus half drunk again

The driver glared at me

 

Met up with you in Inglis

Thumbed a ride to Cedar Key

If we never make it back to California

 

I want you to know I love you

 

But my love is like a dark cloud full of rain

 

That's always right there up above you

 

 

Hey
