I've been on the road now for a day and a night
I've been lonesome and hungry for miles
I've seen how you people been lookin your lies
I'm gonna kill y'all with your own smiles
But I wish that y'all could get a look at the news
And see what the man's puttin down
Well I gotta hold a one yesterday night
And they threw me outta this town, oh yeah
Well it's gonna be awhile before I get home
But when I do that's the end of my roamin
Cause I've been gone a lifetime and I can't believe
That the people I trust still can deceive

By the time I get back here things have to change
Cause if they don't there's gonna be a lot of strange
Lookin people marchin round, clappin their hands
And they won't stop till everyone understands

Oh yeah
Let me ride, let me ride
Let me ride now, let me ride now, yeah

Livin's just like sleepin
Why is life not like a dream
Now the dawn is weepin
Another sunlight sees
Oh I've been here too long now
I got to go outside
Ya people gotta let me ride

Let me ride, ride, ride
I got to feel free inside (4x)

(solo)

Ya people gotta let me ride
Let me ride, ride, ride
I gotta feel free inside (4x)
