Jackie Lomax – Thumbin' A Ride lyrics

I had myself a day job
Pumpin gasoline
A dollar a day is all they pay
And I just can't make that scene
That's why Im thumbin a ride
Thumbin a ride
Thumbin a ride
On the road
If I could find some money
Id straighten out right quick
But every time I get a dime
I spend it on some chick
That's why Im thumbin a ride
Thumbin a ride
Thumbin a ride
On the road
That's why Im thumbin a ride
Thumbin a ride
Thumbin a ride
On the road
Im walking down the highway
Sweating like salt pork
Im putting down this country town
Cause my souls up in New York
That's why Im thumbin a ride
Thumbin a ride
Thumbin a ride
On the road
Words and music by Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller
