    Lyrics

    They broke into your car last night,
    took the stereo
    Now you say you don't know why
    you even live there anymore
    The garage man didn't see a thing,
    so you guess it was an inside job
    You made a reservation, a table for three
    They said you'd have to wait,
    somebody must have bribed the maitre'd
    Boss got mad and he blamed it all on you
    Food was bad and the deal fell through
    (chorus)
    Well out here in the middle
    you can park it on the street
    Step up to the counter;
    you nearly always get a seat
    Nobody steals. Nobody cheats
    Wish you were here my love
    Wish you here my love

    We got tractor pulls and Red Man chew Corporate relo
    refugees that need love too
    we ain't seen Elvis in a year or two
    we got justification for wealth and greed~
    Amber waves of grain and bathtub speed
    We even got Starbucks
    what else you need?

    (chorus)
    Out here in the middle
    Where the center's on the right
    And the ghost of William Jennings Bryan preaches every night
    To save the lonely souls
    in the dashboard lights
    Wish you were here my love
    Wish you were here my love

    (chorus)
    Out here in the middle
    Where the buffalo roam
    We're putting up towers for your cell phones
    And we screen all applicants
    With a fine tooth comb
    Wish you were here my love
    Wish you were here my love
