Hitchin' A Ride '74

This song is by Paper Lace and appears on the album ...And Other Bits of Material (1974) and on the album Paper Lace (1974).

Back in Louisiana my baby Rosanna
Sitting by the window she waits for me
Here am I in Tucson I've booting my shoes on
Got a lot of highway ahead on me
Breaks my heart to know she's so alone in the world
Want somebody help me get to see my girl?

Ride, ride, ride, hitchin' a ride
Ride, ride, ride, hitchin' a ride

A thumb goes up, a car goes by
It's nearly 1 a.m. and here am I
Hitchin' a ride, hitchin' a ride
Gotta get me home to my baby's side

I got no fare to ride a train
I'm nearly drownin' in the pouring rain
Hitchin' a ride, hitchin' a ride
Been away too long from my baby's side

Ride, ride, ride, hitchin' a ride
Ride, ride, ride, hitchin' a ride

Back in Louisiana my baby Rosanna
Sitting by the window she waits for me
Here am I in Tucson I've booting my shoes on
Got a lot of highway ahead on me
Breaks my heart to know she's so alone in the world
Want somebody help me get to see my girl?

Ride, ride, ride, hitchin' a ride
Ride, ride, ride, hitchin' a ride
Ride, ride, ride, hitchin' a ride
