    Lyrics

    (Shel Silverstein)

    Does anyone know of a girl who might like
    A tired old boy on a rusty old bike
    Who just pulled in today from the Florida Glades
    And just got to stop and rest awhile and rest awhile.

    Does anyone know of someone who can use
    A hard working fool who don't ever touch booze
    Who's only vice is a roll of a dice
    And he's just got to stop and rest awhile and rest awhile.

    Easy there lady, I don't want no trouble
    I'll pay for my chili and leave
    Easy there mister, I got the money
    And if I was you I'd let go of my sleeve.

    Does anyone know of a place I can sleep
    Where I won't hear the cry of the wind as she weeps
    For a poor wandering soul who got no place to go
    And just got to stop and rest awhile and rest awhile.

    No fellers, you can't have a ride
    'Cause my bike and my girls I don't share
    Hey sheriff, thank you for stoppin'
    And being concerned 'bout the length of my hair.

    Can anyone lend me a half tank of gas
    And I guess that a smile would be too much to ask
    Cause your warm friendly town don't want my kind around
    And I guess I can't stop and rest awhile and rest awhile.

    Hello mama, your boys comin' home
    'Cause my bike and my dreams all got wrecked
    No mama, don't hang up the phone
    I'm sorry that I had to call you collect.

    Can anyone lend me a half tank of gas
    And I guess that a smile would be too much to ask
    Cause your warm friendly town don't want my kind around
    And I guess I can't stop and rest awhile and rest awhile...
