Falling, I'll see you on the way down.
I'll meet you on the rebound.
Or somewhere in between.
Calling, out across the airwaves
Faces that you can't save
Are calling out for me

And Oh, me oh my,
I say "so long, baby, bye bye"
Pour one for the road.
It's a long journey baby,
And where is gonna take me?
Just depends on the weight of my load. Oh no,
Depends on the weight of my load.

So long, I'll see you on the next round.
'Cuz everybody is been and gone
There's no-one here but me

And hold me all night,
Or say "so long, baby, bye bye"
Pull me one for the road.
It's a long journey baby,
And where is gonna take me?
Just depends on the weight of my load.
Depends on the weight of my load.

(Solo)

And hold me all night,
Or say "so long, baby, bye bye"
Pull me one for the road.
It's a long journey baby,
And where is gonna take me?
Just depends on the weight of my load.
Depends on the weight of my load.
Depends on the weight of my load.
Depends on the weight of my load.
Depends on the weight of my load.

Drawling, sinking on the quicksand
Stranded on the wrong beach
Come and rescue me.

    This is about a songwriters struggle to write a song without rhyming fun/sun or city/pity. Clever how road/load is used instead.

    These lyrics are wrong, i've tried correcting them, but it doesn't seem to work. "oh, me oh my... I say so long baby bye bye, pour me one for the road, its a long journey baby... " and many other errors which screw the meaning right up, also need correcting. Calling, out upon the airwaves...

    Ok now that we've figured out the words he is singing, can we debate on their meaning? Anybody has got a clue? Come and rescue me!
