Mike Heron – Stranded In Iowa lyrics

There's a lot of lights threading up the highway tonight
And I've been goin' nowhere too long
But there's a lot of signals getting through to me now

I hope that help's coming soon
And I will be gone
If only this highway stretched out so far
So I could stand naked shouting from a far star
And my voice would get right t you in your hired car

Stranded in Iowa
Stranded in Iowa

You'd better get the breakdown squad out
And get me rollin' on
'Cause I can't keep my thoughts out of sight
You'd better get the breakdown squad out
Get me rollin' on

Oh I need to see the stars slip by at night
I'm stranded all right
I'm stranded all right - stranded
