Joe Ely Hold On Lyrics

Reeling 'cross the mossy swamp
Texarkana, Louisiana, listening to the engine thump
Nerves are shattered, what does it matter
If the rain pitter-patters down the tree stump?

Looks like the river's low
Johnny and Lindy, ain't they windy, listening to the radio
The river's steamin', what are you dreamin'
Leaning halfway out the window

Roll, roll, roll, we're rollin' on
Blurred barbed wire out the window
Turn around and you'll be gone

Headed up east about broke
In my tuxedo, holy Toledo, choking on the factory smoke
There go the Great Lakes, I got a headache
And I ain't trying to make no joke

Roll, roll, roll, were're rollin' on
Blurred barbed wire out the window
Turn around and you'll be gone

Now we gotta pay our toll
New York City, ain't she pretty, blazing like a thunderbolt
Nerves are shattered, what's it matter?
If the rain pitter-patters down the manhole

Roll, roll, roll, we're rollin' on
Blow, blow, blow, wind blow alone
Hold on honey, we're rollin' on
Roll, roll, roll, we're rollin' on
