Oh the news will travel slowly
Over broken glass
And I'll bet you've heard that story
Under the overpass

Got no time to weep for something
You?ll never get back
If your feeling cold and lonely
Under the overpass

Hallelujah hallelujah
Under the overpass

Dingo cry in the middle of the night
Snakeskin crawl under desert sunlight
I wish and I hope
Someone's there to drink from the soak
In the town where I hit the ground
Its the town with the full nelson sound

Yea the news will travel slowly
Over broken glass
Time and again your gonna hear that story
Under the overpass

Got no time to weep for something
You can never get back
If your feeling cold and lonely
Under the overpass

You can never get back
If your feeling sad and lonely
Under the overpass

Hallelujah (repeated in various forms)
Under the overpass
Under the overpass
