Lord, it's been rough and rocky travelin'
But I'm finally standing upright on the ground
After taking several readings
I'm surprised to find my mind's still fairly sound.
I thought Nashville was the roughest
But I guess I've said the same about them all
Upon hell of an education in the cities
Of this nation me and Tompaul.
I got busted in Laredo for reasons
That I'd rather not disclose
If you're stayin' in a motel there and leave there
Don't leave nothin' in your clothes.
At the airport in Milwaukee
They refused to let us board the plane at all
They said we looked suspicious
But I think they like to pick on me and Paul.
--- Instrumental ---
On a package show in Buffalo with us
And Kitty Wells and Charlie Pride
The show was long and I just hung around
And I'd come there to pick not for the ride.
We drunk a lot of whiskey
So I ain't sure we went on that night at all
I don't think they even missed us
I guess Buffalo ain't geared for me and Tompaul.
