"Drinkin' And Dreamin'"

Everybody's lookin' for some way in,
I'm lookin' for some way out.
I've been wastin' my time standin' in line
If this is what it's all about.

All I got is a job that I don't like
And a woman that don't understand.
So tonight at the bar,
I'll get in my car
And take off for the promise land.

Drinkin' and dreamin'
Knowin' damn well I can't go.
I'll never see Texas, L.A., or Old Mexico.
But here at this table, I'm able to leave it behind. Drink 'til I'm dreamin', a thousand miles out of my mind.

This suit and this tie, is just a disguise.
This ain't really me.
Some people are born, to be tied down,
Some people are born to be free.

When I look down the road she don't know
How it gets under my skin.
She's got my body but my heart and soul
Are out there ridin' the wind.

Drinkin' and dreamin'
Knowin' damn well I can't go.
I'll never see Texas, L.A., or Old Mexico.
But here at this table, I'm able to leave it behind. Drink 'til I'm dreamin', a thousand miles out of my mind.

Drinkin' and dreamin'
Knowin' damn well I can't go.
I'll never see Texas, L.A., or Old Mexico.
But here at this table, I'm able to leave it behind. Drink 'til I'm dreamin', a thousand miles out of my mind.
