Your old man got mad when I told him we were leaving
He cursed and he raged and he swore at the ceiling
He called you his child, said, "Honey get wise to his game
He'll get you in trouble, I know it, those bums are all the same"
There's a Greyhound outside in the lane, it's waiting for us
So tell him goodbye, we gotta go west on that bus

And it's all over now, don't you worry no more
Gonna go west to the sea
The Greyhound is swaying and the radio's playing
Some blues for baby and me

And the highway looks like it never did
Lord, it looks so sweet and so free
And I can't forget that trip to the west
Singing blues for baby and me

Saw your hands trembling, your eyes opened in surprise
It's ninety in the shade, babe, and there ain't a cloud in the sky
I called you my child, said, "Honey, now this is our game
There's two of us to play it and I'm happy to be home again"
There's a Greyhound outside in the lane, it's waiting for us
So tell him goodbye, we gotta go west on that bus

And it's all over now, don't you worry no more
We're gonna go west to the sea
The Greyhound is swaying and the radio's playing
Some blues for baby and me

And the highway looks like it never did
Lord, it looks so sweet and so free
And I can't forget that trip to the west
Singing blues for baby and me

And it's all over now, don't you worry no more
We're gonna go west to the sea
The Greyhound is swaying and the radio's playing
Some blues for baby and me

And the highway looks like it never did
Lord, it looks so sweet and so free
And I can't forget that trip to the west
Singing blues for baby and me
