​Truckstop Butterfly

This song is by The Presidents of the United States of America and appears on the album These Are the Good Times People (2008).

Truckstop butterfly
Covered in gasoline
Truckstop butterfly
Kiss you till you're clean

Me and a man with a mohawk on his head
Found a dirty butterfly half dead
Rainbow of shiny oil slick and stuck on wing
Helpless in a puddle muddy thing

7-11 cherry soda and a pie
30 ton steel grey cloud
And the sky is dark and dripping
Though we stop and wonder why
You're running late but what a great alibi

Truckstop butterfly
Covered in gasoline
Truckstop butterfly
Kiss you till you're clean
(Get gone!)

Far out east in deserts there's a vein of inky gold
Here out west you wear it like a coat
Me and the man with a mohawk watch you go
Folllow sun and leave the melting snow

Man, how I miss you
Truckstop butterfly
Fly so I can't see you
Truckstop butterfly
I hope you made it, and you didn't die
Still, I do miss you
Truckstop butterfly
Truckstop butterfly
Truckstop butterfly
