lyrics

Greyhound Song

From Avenal I walked some miles
The dust, it caked into my hair
And I’d be walking for a while
The dirty dog would get me there

Salinas had my trapped for hours
Wandering upon her streets
A child had stopped to share a scowl
Under the smell of frying meat

I fell asleep near Monterey
In Watsonville I said a prayer
The night turned into breaking day
The dirty dog would get me there

In Santa Cruz another break
I yawned and walked the downtown streets
Past beggars hands and children’s skates
I found myself along the beach

I caught the bus before it left
And watched the world without a care
So close to San Francisco’s heart
The dirty dog would get me there

And when he finally parked the beast
I grabbed my bags and rolled along
And found a place where rent was cheap
On Sutter Street across from Gough

I lingered under neon lights
And quietly kept to myself
The days began to blend to night
And drinks came from an endless well

But joy inside that world would pass
I muttered how it wasn’t fair
Where would I find a place and last?
The dirty dog would get me there
