  • Working up a fever in a one-horse town was a Jockey by the name of Joe
    He didn't have a lot of what you might call "luck"
    But he had a lot of "get-up-and-go"
    why Get up and go, Get up and go, Get up and go back home
    Get up and go, Get up and go, Get up and go back home
    Tall in the saddle in a one-horse town
    Joey knew someday he'd hit the road
    He traded with a dealer for a pick up truck and was lookin' for a medium-load
    repeat why
    Cruisin' down the highway, doin' sixty-five,
    In the middle of the double-white line.
    Foot down on the gas and his head in the clouds.
    He didn't see the 'one way' sign.
    repeat why
    repeat why 2 times Writer/s: NEIL JAMES INNES
