Woody's Last Ride

This song is by Ramblin' Jack Elliott and appears on the album I Stand Alone (2006).

Bess was the one that gave Woody and me a ride in her car
To go to Woody's place the last time I saw him
And he went up to sleep in his tent

Woody and I collected some money
Singing it was in the square
Eleven dollars and forty four cents
We changed it into a paper money at the St. Reno bar
We collected that money in a paper beer cup

When we got to California there was only about fifteen or sixteen cents left
We made it last all the way cross the United States
Four days across the country, eleven dollars
I guess that's the average expenditure of three dollars a day
To drive across the country in a Buick
