A Place With No Name

  • As I drove across on the highway
    My jeep began to rock
    I didn't know what to do so I stopped and got out
    And looked down and noticed I got a flat

    So I walked out, parked the car like sideways
    So I can find what I can fix
    I looked around there were no cars on the highway
    I felt a strange feeling like a mist

    I walked down towards the end of the road
    And in the fog a woman appeared
    She said don't you worry my friend I'll take care
    Take my hand, I'll take you there

    Oh
    Take me to a place without no name
    Take me to a place without no name
    Take me to a place without no name
    Take me to a place without no name

    As she took me right through the fog
    I see a beautiful city appear
    Where kids are playin' and people are laughin' and smiling and
    Nothing to fear fear

    She said this is the place where no people have pain
    With love and happiness
    She turned around looked down at my eyes and started cryin'
    She grabbed my hand, you got a friend

    Oh
    Take me to a place without no name
    Yeah

    She started likin' me kissin' me and huggin' me
    She didn't really, really want me to leave
    She showed me places I've never seen things I've never done
    This really looks like a lotta fun

    I seen the grass and the sky and the birds
    And the flowers surrounded by the trees
    This place is filled with love and happiness
    How in the world could I wanna leave

    So then I went in my pocket took my wallet on out
    With my pictures of my family and girl
    This is the place that you choose to be with me
    When you thought you could be in another world

    Oh
    Take me to a place without no name
    La la la
    A place without no name
    La la la
