lyrics

You’re the prettiest thing I’ve ever seen
And it ain’t your words, but what I hear in between
You and me should hit the road, we’re bigger than this town
Can’t let ‘em break us down

This old white Trans Am will set us free
Unlock our future with these silver keys
Portland, Seattle town, or go out Denver way
Maybe head down to LA

I know there’s a whole new world for us to find
If we could just get past that Butte County Line

Don’t you worry, Patty, I’ll get some cash
Got a cousin out in Gridley I can ask
I got a garbage bag out back, it’s full of cassette tapes
Soundtrack for our escape

My cousin Steve, he said he’d help us out
If I do this thing with him he’s talking about
I swear to you once this is through, oh the stories we will tell
And this whole town can go to hell

I know one day our stars will align
If we could just get past that Butte County Line

That night out at Thompson Flats a double cross went down
The cops showed up and beat us to the ground
They said we was the ones who shot a man on Montgomery Street
But I swear to you, it wasn’t me
I swear, my love, it wasn’t me

They say I’m gonna be here for a while
At the end of May they’re putting me on trial
There ain’t a thing about this life that seems a one bit fair
Please wait for me out there

I know there’s a whole new world for us to find
If we could just get past that Butte County Line

I know one day our stars will align
If we could just get past that Butte County Line
