In a postcard picture you've seen
a five cent paper dream
now you're on the road
with thirty-five miles to go
Just around the corner from nowhere
came a different point of view
meanwhile, back at the ranch house
everybody kept eating stew
They got driftwood coffee tables
and holes in their pants
and when you try to talk to them
All they can do is dance
