    Lyrics

    I'm on my way, got no time to waste
    Places to go, people to chase
    Gonna grab my comb 'n' my toothpaste
    Gotta get away from here

    Twenty-one years from the day I was born
    I was workin' on the night shift, tootin' my horn
    Through sheets of rain, through sleet and storm
    You come to me

    You were the girls with the summer sunshine
    In your eyes and in your smile
    You were the one I thought, I thought loved me
    It was somethin' I never could quite believe
    Gotta get away from here

    I'm a real bad loser, that's what I am
    Gonna grab my hat and my hexagram
    You can stick my money in an old tin can
    I think I fell in love again

    I was down by the bus stop, bidin' my time
    I was hitchin' a ride with a friend of mine
    I was almost gone, I was over the line
    I said what's come over me

    You were the girl with the sound of springtime
    In your songs and in your voice
    You were the one I thought, loved me
    It was somethin' I never could quite believe
    Gotta get away from here, gotta get back to you

    I'm gonna make it today, I'm gonna get on my toes
    Been awake so long, I'm getting ready to doze
    Gonna grab my bag and a few old clothes
    Gotta get away from here, gotta get back to you

    Gotta get away, gotta get away, gotta get away
    Gotta get away, gotta get away
