NOTE: Freeway Dixieland Rocketship Blues eventually morphed into Freeway Blues on the 1974 Look at the Fool album

Freeway Dixieland Rocketship Blues


I've got the freeway dixieland rocket ship blues,
I got the tug boat high steppin' starstudded blues,
I got the kite flyin' bubblegum Sunday school blues,
I got the ponytail bump and grind money makin' blues
The hot dog hanky pank all night long blues
I've got the cop car shoot out whistle pig blues

This town is stuck in July
(And the easy Ripple
Fly high and smile)
And there’s kids in the puddles
I think we oughta have a party
Just to break up the day
Come on and meet me under the exit
Of the brand new freeway

I’ll drink my devil rum
I’ll drink my devil rum
You drink your beer and wine
You drink your beer and wine
I love my devil rum
I love my devil rum
You drink your beer and wine
You drink your beer and wine

I've got the freeway dixieland rocket ship blues,
I got the tug boat high steppin' starstudded blues,
I got the kite flyin' bubblegum Sunday school blues,
I got the ponytail bump and grind money makin' blues
The hot dog hanky pank all night long blues
I've got the cop car shoot out whistle pig blues

This town is stuck in July
(And the easy Ripple
Fly high and smile)
And there’s kids in the puddles
I think we oughta have a party
Just to break up the day
Come on and meet me under the exit,
Of the brand new freeway
