Down The Dustpipe

Charted: 12
  • Heading down the back turnpike, signposts are pointing west
    Fell into the lonely dustpipe, hope my pick-up can stand the test
    But I'm doing all right now
    Rolling down the dustpipe, na-na-na-na nana-na-nana-na

    Rolling down the dustpipe now, got a ten dollar bill in my jeans
    Because there ain't no room for a kosher cowboy in a town like new orleans
    But I'm doing all right now
    Rolling down the dustpipe, na-na-na-na nana-na-nana-na

    Guess I didn't make it in the city, but that's just the way that it goes
    'Cause there's a lotta lunatics, crazy ghostmen, baby, don't like the shape of my nose
    But I'm doing all right now
    Rolling down the dustpipe, na-na-na-na nana-na-nana-na

    Rolling down the dustpipe now, got a ten dollar bill in my jeans
    Because there ain't no room for a kosher cowboy in a town like new orleans
    But I'm doing all right now
    Rolling down the dustpipe, na-na-na-na nana-na-nana-na

    Rolling down the dustpipe now, got a ten dollar bill in my jeans
    Because there ain't no room for a kosher cowboy in a town like new orleans
    But I'm doing all right now.. Writer/s: CARL ARNOLD GROSZMANN
