Tim Buckley – Freeway Blues lyrics

I never swallowed that cheap booze
I keep my distance from straight dudes,
I joined the army just to get more fame,
I love my bluesy cause she walks so strange,
Ah, well you know I think we ought to have a party,
Just to break up the day,
Come on and meet me on an easy exit,
Of our brand new freeway

I've got the freeway it's sublime rocket ship blues,
I got the tug boat high steppin' starstudded blues,
I got the kite flyin' double bubble sunday school blues,
I got the hotel bump and grind money makin' blues

Ah, come on down and play in the traffic
And watch the cars go crazy
We'll pull all over the starlight and disappear in the haze

I've got the hot dog hanky pankin' all night long blues
I've got the cop car shoot out whistle pig blues
I've got the rose bowl low tide lawn mower blues
I've got the freewa dixieland rocketship blues;

I never swallowed that cheap booze,
I keep my distance from straight dudes,
I joined the army just to get more fame,
I love my bluesy cause she walks so strange

Yeah we oughta have a party
Yeah just to break up the day
Come on over 'cause I am high
Got to figure out which way to cruise
