see america right lyrics – mountain goats

i was driving up from tampa
when the radiator burst
i was three sheets to the wind
a civilian saw me first
and then there was the cop
and then the children standing on the corner
your love is like a cyclone in a swamp
and the weather’s getting warmer

i was getting out of jail
heading to the greyhound
you said you’d hop on one yourself
and meet me on the way down
i was shaking way too hard to think
dead on my feet about to drop
went and got the case of vodka from a car
and walked the two miles to the bus stop

got on the bus half drunk again
the driver glared at me
met up with you in inglis
thumbed a ride to cedar key
if we never make it back to california
i want you to know i love you
but my love is like a dark cloud full of rain
that’s always right there up above you
