Thursday, October 26, 2017 – Astros, Guy Clark and If We Can Just Get Off of That L A Freeway

Thursday, October 26, 2017 – Astros, Guy Clark and If we can just get off of that L A Freeway

Please answer the following question regarding last night’s World Series game.

What were you doing last night while pulling for the Houston Astros playing the Los Angeles Dodgers in Game Two of the World Series?

(a) Biting your nails

(b) Peeing in your pants

(c) Holding your breath

(d) All of the above.

I was so tired I was not able to do the HB Forty Dance to celebrate the victory. What a game! Way to go Astros! Series tied.

The Astros are coming home to Houston for the next two games in the series. I found this by the great Guy Clark to help us get ready.

Got to give it all we can now
I believe everything your saying
Just keep on keep on playing…

We’ve got something to believe in…

If they can just get off of this L A Freeway…

GO ASTROS!

Pack up all your dishes
Make note of all good wishes
Say goodbye to the landlord for me

That sum-bitch has always bored me

Throw out them old LA papers
And that moldy box of vanilla wafers

Adios to all this concrete
Gonna get me some dirt road back street

If I can just get off of that L.A. freeway
Without getting killed or caught

Down that road in a cloud of smoke
For some land that I ain’t bought bought bought

Here’s to you old skinny Dennis
Only one I think I will miss
I can hear your Bassman singin   Sweet and low like a gift your bringin’

Play it for me one more time now
Got to give it all we can now
I believe everything your saying
Just keep on keep on playing

If I can just get off of that L.A. freeway
Without getting killed or caught
Down that road in a cloud of smoke
For some land that I ain’t bought bought bought

Put the pink slip in the mailbox
Leave the key in the old front door lock

They will find it likely as not
With all the things that we have forgot

Oh Susanna now don’t you cry, babe
Love’s a gift that’s surely handmade
We’ve got something to believe in

Before you know it’s time we’re leavin’

If I can just get off of that L.A. freeway

Without getting killed or caught
Down that road in a cloud of smoke
For some land that I ain’t bought bought bought

If I can just get off of that L.A. freeway …
