    Lyrics

    The whole world's topsy turvy
    You feel like you're upside down
    Everyday it's a push and a shove
    People tryin' to get around

    Working hard, tryin' to make some bread
    Kinda get it 'fore it gets away
    It's too bad our old man must work to get along
    But living knowing needs a pay

    The city is a place in which dirty dreams
    It's chance to give your ideas, life
    Man, gets along in Folsom country green
    He just likes some peace and quiet
    Peace and quiet, peace and quiet

    So, I've to be up and leaving this town
    And set headed down an open road
    With all that you own kinda thrown on the back seat
    Thinking 'bout where you're going

    Maybe New Orleans, maybe Mexico
    Yeah, got to go, yeah, I'm, I'm, I've got to get out of here
    Don't you know, yeah, babe, I got to head on down

    If only you could pack up everything you love
    And everyone who'd ever been your friend
    Keeping close to you the things that make you strong
    Got to carry them with you around the bend

    The fear to move and meet the new can keep you in line
    To go you know that something stays behind
    Separate the good and bad and take along the kind
    To the place you'd like to be and right down the line, line

    Oh, I've to be up and leaving this town
    And set headed down an open road
    With all that you own kinda thrown on the back seat
    Thinking 'bout where you're going

    Maybe New Orleans, maybe Mexico
    Yeah, got to go, yeah, I'm, I'm, I've got to get out of here
    Don't you know, yeah, babe

    I've to be up and leaving this town
    And set headed down an open road
    With all that you own kinda thrown on the back seat
    Thinking 'bout where you're going

    Maybe New Orleans, maybe Mexico
    Yeah, got to go, yeah, I'm, I'm, I've got to get out of here
    Don't you know, yeah, babe, I got to head on down

    Head on down
    Stop off down in Austin, Texas
    See some friends of mine, yeah, yeah
    Down near the border, down near the border
    Down near the border, down near the border
