Jordan Zevon – Studebaker lyrics

I left my home in Monterey just another low prospects man
I'd rather work in the foundry than put fishes in a can
I'm thirty-five and I haven't traveled far and I've spent all my money on this misbegotten car

I'm up against it all like a leaf against the wind and my Studebaker keeps on breaking down again
My Studebaker keeps on breaking down again
I thought I'd go to Fresno just to see my friend but my damn Studebaker keeps on breaking down again

I was speeding south on ninety-nine when the manifold started smokin'
I ran her off the shoulder and now the axle's broken
It made a sound that cracked my heart in half and with only half a half pint of vodka left

I'm up against it all like a leaf against the wind and this Studebaker keeps on breaking down again
My Studebaker keeps on breaking down again
I thought I'd go to Fresno just to see my friend but my damn Studebaker keeps on breaking down again

My Studebaker keeps on breaking down again
My Studebaker keeps on breaking down again
I thought I'd go to Fresno just to see my friend but my damn Studebaker keeps on breaking down again
