Thumbin' A Ride

This song is by Jackie Lomax.

I had myself a day job
Pumpin' gasoline
A dollar a day is all they pay
And I just can't make that scene

That's why I'm thumbin' a ride
Thumbin' a ride
Thumbin' a ride
On the road

If I could find some money
I'd straighten out right quick
But every time I get a dime
I spend it on some chick

That's why I'm thumbin' a ride
Thumbin' a ride
Thumbin' a ride
On the road

That's why I'm thumbin' a ride
Thumbin' a ride
Thumbin' a ride
On the road

I'm walking down the highway
Sweating like salt pork
I'm putting down this country town
'Cause my soul's up in New York

That's why I'm thumbin' a ride
Thumbin' a ride
Thumbin' a ride
On the road

Words and music by Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller
