trying to get away lyrics – grand funk railroad

i been out on the road with my thumb in the air,
i’m a long way from home but i just don’t care.
the dust from the road makes it dry in my mouth,
when it’s cold up north, that’s when i head south.

’cause i been tryin’ to, tryin’ to get away, yeah.
tryin’ to, tryin’ to get away, yeah.

i p*ssed through new york just the other day,
the smog was bad but not as bad as l.a.
sometimes i wonder what the world’s comin’ to.
sometimes i wonder what i’m gonna’ do.

chorus
’cause i been tryin’ to, tryin’ to get away, yeah.
i been tryin’ to, tryin’ to get away, yeah.

i been out on the road with my thumb in the air,
i’m a long way from home but i just don’t care.
the dust from the road makes it dry in my mouth,
when it’s cold up north, that’s when i head south.

tryin’ to, tryin’ to get away.
tryin’ to, tryin’ to get away.
tryin’ to, tryin’ to get away.
tryin’ to, tryin’ to get away.

chorus

’cause i been tryin’ to, tryin’ to get away, yeah, yeah, yeah.
