VERSE ONE:
Well, it's been rough and rocky travellin' but I'm finally standin' upright on the ground
And after takin' several readings, I'm surprised to find my mind's still fairly sound
I thought Nashville was the roughest, but I guess I've said the same about them all
Got one hell of an education in the cities of this nation, me and Tompall

VERSE TWO:
I got busted in Loredo for reasons that I'd rather not disclose
But if you're stayin' in a motel there and leave there, don't leave nothin' in your clothes
At the airport in Milwalkee, they refused to let us board the plane at all
They said we looked suspicious, but I think they liked to pick on me and Paul

VERSE THREE:
On a package show in Buffalo with us and Kitty Wells and Charley Pride
The show was long and I just hung around and I'd come there to pick, not for the ride
We drank a lot of whiskey, so I ain't sure we went on that night at all
But I don't think they even missed us... I guess Buffalo ain't geared for me and Tompall
