  • Pack up all your dishes
    Make note of all good wishes
    Say goodbye to the landlord for me
    That sum-***** has always bored me

    Throw out them old LA papers
    And that moldy box of vanilla wafers
    Adios to all this concrete
    Gonna get me some dirt road back street

    [Chorus]
    If I can just get off of that L.A. freeway
    Without getting killed or caught
    Down that road in a cloud of smoke
    For some land that I ain't bought bought bought
    If I can just get off of that L.A. freeway

    Here's to you old skinny Dennis
    Only one I think I will miss
    I can hear your Bassman singin'
    Sweet and low like a gift your bringin'

    Play it for me one more time now
    Got to give it all we can now
    I believe everything your saying
    Just keep on keep on playing

    [Chorus]

    Put the pink slip in the mailbox
    Leave the key in the old front door lock
    They will find it likely as not
    With all the things that we have forgot
    Oh Susanna now don't you cry, babe
    Love's a gift that's surely handmade
    We've got something to believe in
    Before you know it's time we're leavin'

    [Chorus]
