    Well I'm goin back
    Goin home again
    Yeah I'm goin back
    To my own again
    Yeah I'm goin back
    Ahhh to my home town
    The one that put me out
    The one that put me down

    Well I wired up a car in East Fontana
    I was aheaded for San Berdu
    Ahhh my midnight oil
    It was on the boil
    An boy I was a barreln through
    Then I took a turn
    But I hit the curb
    An spun off the center lane
    An when I heard the crash
    Well I stomped on the gas
    An I was barreln on again
    I leave a few people dead
    But I got open road ahead
    Yeah
    I leave a few people dead
    But I got open road ahead

    An I remember the cop
    With his slicked-back hair
    When he told me
    To get out ahere
    An I remember the judge
    With his gold plated mouth
    He said "go live in the north
    You gonna die down South'
    You gonna die down south

    [Chorus]
    I went flyin through South San Berdu
    With my mind on East L.A.
    Where my pachuco queen
    She's cookin re-fried beans
    An she's waitin for me today
    Yeah stopped on off at the liquor store
    Made every body lay down on the floor
    Took all their whiskey
    Took their bread
    Then Shot out their lights
    Just before I fled
    Yeah
    I leave a few people dead
    But I got open road ahead
    Yeah
    I leave a few people dead,
    But I got open road ahead

    An I remember the *****
    Whose black tongue lied
    When she told me
    She's dissatisfied
    An I remember her daddy
    Big as a truck
    He said "**** with me boy
    if you want to ****
    Yeah, **** with me boy
    if you want to ****

    [Chorus]
    Yeah there oughta be a law-aca
