down the road lyrics – kansas

i, i’m in a kind of foolish game i try to get rich quick
but i’m going insane
the kind of freaks that hang out on 42nd street
they’re all pimping judy’s and popping speed, well
it’s a game of cat and mouse and i think it’s got my soul
i think it’s time for thinking ’bout a time to roll on
down the road, so here i go

here come big mike, i kinda owe him some beans, well
he must be crazy, i guess that’s why he’s so mean
if i tell him i’m leaving, he would sure enough split my gut
’cause he knows i sold to a sucker and i owe big mike a cut
but i’ll slip him a twenty dollar bill till i get out of town
when i hit those white lines, i’m gonna be gone like a
greyhound down the road, down the road, yeah

it’s a long, long road
