Gordon Lightfoot – Somewhere U.S.A. lyrics

Out on the road like a low down Joe
And the bar where we are is so cool I'd like to stay
Misunderstood like I knew I would be
The one I care for don't mind, she's built that way

I would gladly offer you my love
In this hotel in somewhere, U.S.A.

This rented car never went so far
But with each passing mile on more dream has turned to clay
Now that we've met and your eyes are all wet
Let me fetch my guitar, there's a song I'd like to play

I would gladly offer you my song
In this hotel in somewhere, U.S.A.

One never knows where the good times go
If you got some to spend, we'll do anything you say
I'd never lie, well you know I've tried
Though you think it's the drink that has made me behave this way

I would gladly offer you my love
In this hotel in somewhere, U.S.A.
