Bob Seger - Ride Out Lyrics






Detroit Made

I got me a deuce and a quarter, babe
She will ride you right
Pick you up about half past nine
We can ride all night

I came up from the country, baby
City's where I stay
Got me a deuce and a quarter, babe
It's all I got to say

[Chorus:]
She's a Detroit made
Deuce and a quarter, babe
She's a Detroit made
Deuce and a quarter, babe

Big-block she'll do all the work
So we can ride in style
Leather on those bucket seats
Carpet double pile
Chrome that takes the moonlight on
Sea to shining sea
You can hear those glass pipes rumble to the statue of liberty

[Chorus]

Now when I first got out of high school
I drove an old farm truck
All the girls they walked right by me
Didn't even say good luck
Now I ride my 225, they all want to be my friend
I'll pick you up later tonight now baby
You can wait till then

[Chorus]

Just about every cat I know wants him a coupe de ville
I pay half the price and get twice as nice
And they're still trying to pay that bill
Now I can't say everything's okay riding in my car
But I got me a deuce and a quarter baby
She goes like a shooting star

[Chorus]

Hey Gypsy

Hey gypsy where you gonna go
Hey gypsy where you gonna go
I am tired of this waitin'
I ain't gonna wait no more

Hey mama I'm your baby boy
Hey mama I'm your baby boy
Lets head on home
I'll give you your favorite toy

We've been all over town
Chasin' the crowds
I'm getting kinda nervous cause the
Music's too loud

Hey gypsy where we gonna be
This hard love livin'
It's gettin' too much for me

You keep on pushin' me around the clock
I keep on fallin' and I can't get up
You know I love you but enough's enough
You move too fast girl you play too rough

Hey gypsy here we are again
Hey gypsy I'm your only friend
You can treat me bad mama
You'll never get another again

The Devils Right Hand

About the time that Daddy left to fight the big war
I saw my first pistol in the general store
In the general store, when I was thirteen
Thought it was the finest thing I ever had seen
So l asked if I could have one someday when I grew up
Mama dropped a dozen eggs, she really blew up
She really blew up and I didn't understand
Mama said the pistol is the devil's right hand

The devil's right hand, the devil's right hand
Mama said the pistol is the devil's right hand

My very first pistol was a cap and ball Colt
Shoot as fast as lightnin' but it loads a mite slow
Loads a mite slow and soon I found out
It can get you into trouble but it can't get you out
So then I went and bought myself a Colt 45
Called a peacemaker but I never knew why
Never knew why, I didn't understand
Cause Mama said the pistol is the devil's right hand

Well I get into a card game in a company town
Caught a miner cheating I shot the dog down
Shot the dog down, watched the man fall
Never touched his holster, never had a chance to draw
The trial was in the morning and they drug me out of bed
Asked me how I pleaded, not guilty I said
Not guilty I said, you've got the wrong man
Nothing touched the trigger but the devil's right hand

Ride Out

From the sword of the crusader to the missionary spin
From the atom of creation to the secrets deep within
Illusions and delusions lead us where we shouldn't go
Time to disconnect from clutter, time to hit the road

Ride out to a bold new horizon
Where the sun may be shinin'
On a place you've never seen

Ride out lift your soul and your spirit
Take a chance and get near it
Everybody needs a dream

Is the media for real do we fake or do we feel
Do we base all our appeal on a model or a myth
It's a market correction it's addiction resurrection
It's the last thing you mention before you knock it stiff

Ride out where the hills meet the valleys
Far from campaigns and rallies
And the things we do for oil

Ride out mix the real and imagined
With the lost and abandoned
And bring it to a boil

It takes your breath away
The way we pay and pay and pay and pay

You can take it to the masses you can run it up a pole
You can conquer all resistance and believe you're in control
But the world will be watchin' there's a crack in every lie
When it opens like a chasm you can kiss it all goodbye

Ride out to the high copper canyons
Past the shacks and the mansions
Where the rivers never end

Ride out past the peaks and the mesas
To the wide open spaces
You may never see again

Ride out to a brand new horizon
Where the sun may be shinin'
On a place you've never seen

Ride out lift your soul lift your spirt
Take a chance and get near it
Everybody needs a dream

Adam And Eve

My name is Adam, my name is Eve
I was the first man to live and breathe
God made the ocean, He made it blue
He told us "Don't eat forbidden fruit"

Oh, He can see us, hear what we say
But He was resting on that seventh day
She met a serpent that afternoon
He smiled at her and she broke the rule

Come on, we're leaving, no time to waste
The Garden of Eden's no longer safe
Throw down that apple, that ship has sailed
We're on the run with God on our tail

I can remember, I do recall
There were no weeds here, no thorns at all
I was misguided, I was mislead
I asked for good but got evil instead

Come on, we're leaving, no time to waste
The Garden of Eden's no longer safe
Throw down that apple, that ship has sailed
We're on the run with God on our tail
Throw down that apple, that ship has sailed
We're on the run with God on our tail

My name is Adam, my name is Eve
I was the first man to live and breathe

California Stars

I'd like to rest my heavy head tonight
On a bed of California stars
I'd like to lay my weary bones tonight
On a bed of California stars
I'd love to feel your hand touching mine
And ell me why i must keep working on
Yes, I'd give my life to lay my head tonight
On a bed of California stars

I'd like to dream my troubles all away
On a bed of California stars
Jump up from my starbed and make another day
Underneath my California stars
They hang like grapes on vines that shine
And warm the lovers glass like friendly wine
So, I'd give this world just to dream a dream with you
On our bed of California stars

Its Your World

Let's talk about acid in the ocean
Let's look at all the dying coral reefs
Let's talk about shorter growing seasons
Let's talk about what we're gonna eat

Say a prayer for the victims of extinction
Say another for the redwood trees
Say another for arctic and the tundra
Let's talk about who we're tryin' to please

It's your world

The rich keep bitchin' and the rest keep wishin' it away
All these children have to face our mess someday

Let's talk about mining in Wisconsin
Let's talk about breathing in Beijing
Let's talk about chemicals in rivers
Let's talk about cash as king

Let's talk about runoff from the mountains
Check the levels on Lake Mead
Let's talk about mortgaging the future
We borrow and we borrow and we borrow, borrow, borrow

It's your world

All Of The Roads

All of the roads I've run
All of the faces I've left in my wake
Hopin' to leave my mark
Hopin' I gave and I didn't just take
Climbing a mountain many are left behind
Chasing a dream and seeing the world takes time

If you were in my world
If you could feel all the things that I feel
Maybe you'd understand
Every mirage has a certain appeal
After the thrill it's off to indifferent rooms
After the lights the darkness is coming soon

I've done it all before
And I have gone through every door
And I've been right down on the floor and more

All of the roads I've run
All of the years that have fallen away
Light from a distant star
Crossing the void and arriving one day
Oceans of space defending the great unknown
Sooner or later all of us head for home

You Take Me In

Sometimes I'm frail sometimes I fall
My best intentions bring nothing at all and I
Feel like a cloud high on a hill
Making no difference imposing no will

When promises scatter and don't seem to matter
I know in the end you take me in
Through all of this vanity all this insanity
I've got a friend you take me in

These are the hours, this is our time
I'm in your universe you are in mine
And there's so much to share so much to feel
Having a vision and knowing it's real

I search for the meaning and keep on believing
Because in the end you take me in
Through all of these reasons that change like the seasons
I've got a friend, you take me in
You take me in
You take me in

Gates Of Eden

I was in the tender mercies of the breaking dawn

I was somehow in a place that made me want to go along

I remember thinking all of this must have a reason

I remember thinking maybe I should look beyond

I came on like thunder, lightning split the purple sky

My whole day had been a journey, sorting through the truth and lies

I remember searching, longing for a deeper meaning

and it hit me like a diamond bullet right between the eyes

And I believe everything you say

Every (paradigm) every (word) (I raise)

Calling into question everything that I believe in

(fallen) with the masses stranded at the gates of eden.

I was (fallen) with the masses stranded at the gates of eden.

Listen

You can hear it if you listen
If you really take the time
If you listen past bravado
If you listen past the wine
Everyone's so busy
The truth gets left behind, left behind

In the light of understanding
The darkness dies at dawn
The winter falls behind us
And the summer comes along
We all need believin'
So we can carry on, carry on

I am always here for you
Every night and day
I'll keep on a light for you
Until you find your way

When the world becomes indifferent
The words become unclear
If you listen past the anger
If you listen past the fear
Everyone's elusive
But the truth is always near
If you listen you will hear

When your dreams are far away
When the doubts begin
I am always here for you
Until you dream again

The Firemans Talkin

The fireman's talkin' like heroes do
You best start listenin' when he gets to you
The ice is meltin' the seas are high
The smoke keeps risin' and there's no more time
You know you're out of time

There's no more hidin' the truth away
A change is comin' it's on the way
It won't be sudden it might take years
It might take decades but it will get here
You know it will get here
You know it will get here

You will feel it right outside your door
You won't be denyin' anymore
Livin' in Orlando by the sea
Where will all your magic be
Right where it should be

The fireman's talkin' his words are clear
It might take decades but it will get here
There's no more hidin' the truth away
The fireman's talkin' it's on the way
It's on the way

Let The Rivers Run

I've seen the top, I've seen the view
Lately I find not much is new
And there's always a hill out there beyond
Where I could be and where I belong

Some always take, some have to win
They leave you with scars again and again
As they reach for the sky only to fall
They never change, I've seen them all

Let the rivers run like they always do
It's not up to me it's not up to you
When we reach the end when our time is done
Let us all be still while the rivers run

Let the rivers run from the great divide
I will stay with you I'll be by your side
When we reach the end when the words are done
Let us listen well while the rivers run
