Text písně Hometown Gypsy

Drivin' up the coast 
To find a version of the truth
Left the backdoor swinging 
Like a dirty little sleuth


The truth is I have never 
Felt half this alive
Now it's time to dance 
Upon the grave called 45


Jacked up on some Kerouac 
And surely bullet proof
The girl who taught me what to do 
Was missing her front tooth


Gentle as a storm 
Inside your mental health
I wanna find the answer 
But I just can't find myself


I say so long 
To the way I played
The way I played 
Inside of yesterday
Hey let's run around
The great escape 
From out of my hometown


Later I would look for love 
Inside a woman's dorm
A couch to keep me humble 
And her breath to keep me warm


Ophelia was the girl 
That I was feeling for
Come to realize 
It was me who was the whore


A captain lost himself 
Inside a 40 year old skull
The drink of choice was knowledge 
And we always wanted more


Drunken sailors 
Seeking their Geronimo
Instead they found the things 
That they really didn't wanna know


I say so long 
To the way I played
The way I played 
Inside of yesterday
Hey let's run around
The great escape 
From out of my hometown


Country roads 
Would never let me stay
The way I played 
Inside of yesterday


A devil's growl and cat's meow 
Were blended into one
Termites called suburbanites 
Were eating all the fun


A juggernaut of comedy 
And blasphemy
I wanna stop the madness 
But I think it has to be


I say so long 
To the way I played
The way I played 
Inside of yesterday
Hey let's run around
The great escape 
From out of my hometown


(Added to final song)
Country roads 
Would never let me stay
The way I played 
Inside of yesterday


Hey let's run around
The great escape 
From out of my hometown
