I was drivin' home early Sunday morning Through Bakersfield, Listening to gospel music on the coloured radio station, And the preacher said: "You know you always have the lord by your side" And I was so pleased to be informed of this That I ran twenty red lights in his honour, Thank you Jesus, thank you lord
I had an arrangement to met a girl, and I was kind of late And I thought by the time I got there she'd be off, She'd be off with the nearest truck driver she could find Much to my surprise there she was sittin' in a corner Little bleary, worse for wear and tear Was a girl with far away eyes Well I tell you
So if you're down on you're luck, and you can't harmonize Find a girl with far away eyes And if you're downright disgusted And life ain't worth a dime Get a girl with far away eyes Well
