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
