  • Lyrics: On my way to Atlanta, My tank was on zero So I stopped for gasoline The real American hero I put my card in I stood there wonderin’ Did I still have money? Was I still somebody? I saw an old man walkin’ He had a hard time walkin’ So I did a little backward bendin’ As if that would keep me young But everything here Is so temporary Sign said lift the nozzle Fill ‘er up and hit the highway In the pickup next to me I saw a red haired girl Smokin’ a cigarette Otherwise attractive I saw her ponytail I saw her seein’ me But what I could not see Was the soul inside I know that’s the real deal But I’m not there yet All I can see is Red hair and cigarettes Why can’t I stay young? Why must I get old? While we’re on the subject, What am I here for? Was I a malcontent In a perfect world? Is that what landed me In the twentieth century? Who is in charge here? Tell me, who runs the show? If I ever find out There’s a lotta things I’d sure like to know Muhammad Ali said He was the greatest In nineteen seventy-four He does not say that anymore Time passes so fast Quickly away it slips Through the middle of an hourglass Shaped like a woman’s hips And every grain of sand, it Flows down the river And from the river To the sea They say life began there But I know better Why aren’t there more songs Like this on the radio?
