​Manheim Station

This song is by The Gougers.

Manheim station

There is a place that hides it's face just this side of the sun
You get there in your bad dreams or down highway 21
Well when it burns your skin and blows them tumbleweeds around
And It mixes with the hummin' on that lonesome highway's sound

Well when you're just a poor boy you do just as you're told
And you watch them taillights shine above the blacktop on the road
St. Christopher release me from this captive spell, I pray
And send me down a blackbird for to howl my soul away


When you work at Manheim station you know life moves pretty slow
That sun'll beat you like a step child and you got nowhere to go
You just fill 'em cars with gasoline and look for things to do
While you wait all day for a pretty little thing like you


I have seen the rain come down and I have prayed for cold
And I watched the world pass by me from the side of the road
I've seen old folks come to waste their days and grows like old oak trees
And Jack, I swear to Kerouac that won't happen to me


When you work at Manheim station you know life moves pretty slow
That sun'll beat you like a step child and you got nowhere to go
You just fill 'em cars with gasoline and look for things to do
While you wait all day for a pretty little thing like you, a little thing like you


Well one day east of Manheim, man the sun will cease to rise
And lightning bolts will swarm the air and clouds will fill the skies
Gonna wait till they ain't lookin' and I'll slip out with the wind
And I'll swim more to that golden shore and not come back again


When you're leavin' Manheim station you can hear your mama cry
And that settin' sun is wailing like a siren in the sky
You just fill 'em cars with gasoline and look for things to do
While you wait all day for a pretty little thing like you
