I've been standin' here waitin' for the bus on a Saturday
Laundry on my back, ultraviolet rays
Like I'm posin' for a shot in a magazine
What the hell does it mean

I'm a traveling man, straight from the can
I'm a thousand miles away from my number one fan
My folks are gettin' tight, won't let me out at night
You can't avoid the complications when there's no reason at all

When the lightnin' strikes, we fry
I'll drink my beer
I'll wipe my tears
Southbound in the sky

Another crime, another reason gets you everyday
The only time that you can talk you ain't got nothin' to say
Well, I'm caught up in a stupid game that I can't play
It's just a waste of time but I'm in it anyway

I've been sittin' here watchin' the signs
Too many cars at night belchin' in the moonlight
We're doin' ninety as the sky turns to gray
The people look like bees buzzin' by the highway

The wheels are rollin' like a rollin' stone
Alone, I chose the road less traveled on

Now, I'm lying here waiting for the day on the second deck
Dreamin' of a girl from a fairy tale, chain around my neck
A ride is all it takes
But pains get in the way

I'm a traveling man, straight from the can
I'm a thousand miles away from my number one fan
My folks are gettin' tight, won't let me out at night
You can't avoid the complications when there's no reason at all

When the lightnin' strikes, we fry
I'll drink my beer
I'll wipe my tears
Southbound in the sky

Another crime, another reason gets you everyday
The only time that you can talk you ain't got nothin' to say
Well, I'm caught up in a stupid game that I can't play
It's just a waste of time, waste of time

Another crime, another reason gets you everyday
The only time that you can talk you ain't got nothin' to say
Well, I'm caught up in a stupid game that I can't play
It's just a waste of time but I'm in it anyway

I'm in it anyway, hey
I'm in it anyway
