Taking a trip across the USA
Gonna see a lotta people along the way from far and wide
Floating along on the Rio Grande
Coca Cola in my hand in the promise land
Living my days in the old jail cell
Somehow life just goes to hell with one bad hand

Love is love, hate is hate, now is now, late is late
Truth is fiction, truth is lies
Strange things happen when worlds collide
Strange things happen when worlds collide

Cruising down Route 66 where the guys and gals
Used to get their kicks in the old days
Running low on the people's fuel
Riding in something that's really cool on the proud highway
Living my days in an old jail cell
Somehow life just goes to hell when worlds collide

Black is black, white is white, wrong is wrong, wrong is right
Truth is fiction, truth is lies
Strange things happen when worlds collide
Strange things happen when worlds collide

Strange things happen, strange things happen
Strange things happen
