Barkin' Sparrow Blues

There´s barkin' sparrows on my windscreen
There´s walkin' shadows on the road
There´s barkin' sparrows on my windscreen
There´s walkin' shadows on the road
Into the screaming air, silent and blue
Slowly dragging the overload

It´s gonna follow me all morning
it´s gonna make me stop and spit
It´s gonna follow me all morning
it´s gonna make me stop and spit
I´m pulling over to the roadhouse
If I get back alive this time I´ll quit

Ride on, hopeless rider
Ride on, ride on, ride on
into the blue, blue yonder

There´s goat's eyes floatin' on my gumbo
I wonder: will they be goin' down
There´s goat's eyes floatin' on my gumbo
I wonder: will they be goin' down
I´m stuck between the millstones in my mind
and it makes me sick to see that waitress frown

Ride on, hopeless rider
Ride on, ride on, ride on
into the blue, blue yonder

There´s something swimming in my coffee
I lean back and watch it jump and dive
There´s something swimming in my coffee
I lean back and watch it jump and dive
but the white lines are calling
I gotta get outta here before the shadows come alive
