Best of James Rays Performance and Gangwar - Cover (front)

I'm gonna ride my ticket got places to drive
Keep my eyes on the highway keep my head on the sky
Making love to the world at 75
I think I love ya baby doing 95

Let's go
on the dust boat

Lights turned head on til' break of the night
I'm gonna Drive Drive Drive to the morning light
Keep my body burning til there's nowhere to run
Drive drive drive into the sun

Let's go
into the sun

Freight train freight train rolling by
kiss me baby kiss me baby kiss me good bye
please please please please don't ask me why
i've gotta dance dance dance dance into the sky (the sky)
I've got to dance under the moonlight

Let's go
Dust Boat, Dust Boat, Dust Boat baby
Dust Boat, Dust Boat, Dust Boat girl
Dust Boat, Dust Boat, Dust Boat baby
Dust Boat, Dust Boat, Dust Boat girl

I need to find my home where the buffalo roam
Got my white line highway five-oh-one
I feel my body shaking, more dead than alive
Making no plans doing one by five

Let's ride

I'm looking at the world through the things in my eyes
And I can see your face in the morning sky
?? going one-ninety-five

Suicide baby, dust boat girl

Let's go
Hey baby, drive

Gonna all there I'm gonna drive it til the break of the day
I'm going to drive it til I'm singin' from an early grave
here we go now
