  • Well I went to bed in Memphis
    And I woke up in Hollywood
    I got a quarter in my pocket
    And I'd call you if I could
    But I don't know why
    I gotta fly

    I want to rock and roll this party
    I still want to have some fun
    I want to leave you feeling breathless
    Show you how the west was won
    But I gotta fly
    I gotta fly

    Like Steve McQueen
    All I need's a fast machine
    And I'm gonna make it all right
    Like Steve McQueen
    Underneath your radar screen
    You'll never catch me tonight

    I ain't takin' shit off no one
    Baby that was yesterday
    I'm an all American rebel
    Making my big getaway
    Yeah you know it's time
    I gotta fly

    Like Steve McQueen
    All I need's a fast machine
    And I'm gonna make it all right
    Like Steve McQueen
    Underneath your radar screen
    You'll never catch me tonight

    Like Steve McQueen
    Like Steve McQueen

    We got rock stars in the White House
    All our pop stars look like porn
    All my heroes hit the highway
    They don't hang out here no more

    You can try me on my cell phone
    You can page me all night long
    But you won't catch this free bird
    I'll already be long gone

    Like Steve McQueen
    All we need's a fast machine
    And we're gonna make it all right
    Like Steve McQueen
    Underneath your radar screen
    You'll never catch us tonight

    Like Steve McQueen
    All we need's a fast machine
    And we're gonna make it all right
    Like Steve McQueen
    Underneath your radar screen
    You'll never catch me tonight Writer/s: JOHN SHANKS, SHERYL CROW

  • Adrian from Brookings, SdOne of the few awesome songs on the album. Even the cheesy "woo woo" in the chorus is catchy. The song's got a groove and an edge that is just so Sheryl Crow. Rock on, baby!
