lyrics

Have you ever walked around when they didn't even know your name
Waitin' for something that never came.
Understand I'm a simple man
Nothin' but vanilla from a fella who's oh so plain.

You know I damn near drowned in a big city melting pot
Learnin' everything I'm not
I ain't that pretty and I aint' that witty
I guess I never knew or I just forgot.

But I've got crushed mosquitoes on my windshield
Butterflies in the wiper blade
And I'm almost to Springfield
Where the sun shines on this dog's ass every day.

Well, I walked around with my face to the ground
To the sound of a voice of a girl who was stuck in my head
And they weren't jokin' when they said I'd be chokin'
On the bones of a love that was already clinically dead.
That's what they said.

I'll buy a Red Sovine with the last of the floorboard change
As soon as I'm out of AM range
Pop a Coke, light up a smoke
And thank the Lord goin' home never feels strange.

'Cause I've got crushed mosquitoes on my windshield
Butterflies in the wiper blade
And I'm almost to Springfield
Where the sun shines on this dog's ass every day.
