lyrics

Boil it Down

Went to California
All the way to Frisco
Went by way of San Antone
Crossed the Shenandoah
Just the way I told ya
Yeah I’m never going back home

I don’t miss my mother
I don’t miss my brother
And I damn sure don’t miss being alone

Yeah all the way to Frisco
Man this ain’t no disco
Man this ain’t no foolin’ around

But you can’t outrun yourself when you boil it down
No you can’t outrun yourself when you boil it down

I drove all across the desert
Climbed the highest mountain
Swam the mighty Mississip
Walked on coals of fire
Tip toed long a wire
Think I mighta gave him the slip

Well I don’t know where I’m going
I don’t know how to get there
But I know it’s been a Hell of a trip

Yeah I drove across the desert
Ran until my feet hurt
Crawling to my burial ground

But you can’t outrun yourself when you boil it down
No you can’t outrun yourself when you boil it down

Boil it down

But you can’t outrun yourself when you boil it down
No you can’t outrun yourself when you boil it down
