From the recording Hippy Fiasco Rides Again
I hopped on like a freight train.
I jumped in like a pool.
Tagged along like a best friend.
D A D
Followed you around like a fool.
Turned my back on my family.
Turned my back on all I knew.
In turn, they turned on me
and I stood there facing only you.
G D G D
Now here I am alone for sure,
banging my head upon your door.
Bm A .........
The lights are on, but no one's home,
I can't take this any more.
Thought you were my lover girl,
but you weren't even my friend.
I'm out here huffing and a puffin
trying to blow this brick house in.
I signed on like a soldier
who never thought we'd go to war.
If you didn't want to love me
then what did you love me like that for.
All my friends tried to warn me.
Said I was heading for a fall.
Flashing lights and flags of caution.
I rode right past them all.
