  • Today I'm livin' like a rich man's son
    Tomorrow mornin' I could be a bum
    It doesn't matter which direction, though
    I know a woman in New Mexico
    Worse comes to worst
    I'll get along
    I don't know how, but sometimes
    I can be strong
    Oh, and if I don't have a car, I'll hitch
    I got a thumb and she's a son of a bitch
    I do my writing on my road guitar
    And make a living at a piano bar, oh
    Lightning and thunder
    Flashed across the roads we drove upon
    Oh, but it's clear skies we're under
    When I am together, when I sing the song
    Oh, fun ain't easy if it ain't free
    Too many people got a hold on me
    But I know something that they don't know
    I know a woman in New Mexico
    Chorus 3x and fade
