The mornin' broke,
And the first rays of dawn,
Took the night away,
And painted the blue,
Such a mystical hue, Of red.
The D. J. spoke, On the radio,
And took me back a ways,
Before the dawn,
When a realization laid its hand,
Upon my head.
Today's the day,
I just gotta' make, My Getaway.

The night had been warm,
The wind blowin' in,
And across my face,
Carried the scent,
The familiar mint,
Of the desert rose.
I saw the sign,
Of the county line.
It was back a ways,
Before the night had changed, yeah,
Into a day,
When I just to make, My Getaway.

She said, "It would be so easy to be lovers."
I told her it had been hard, To find a friend.
She said, "We could be so good, For each other."
Who'd have ever thought, Such a love could begin,
And then end, In a day when I'd just have to make my Getaway?

The white lines went by.
The wind made a move,
In the distant pines,
Goin' up the slope,
A whisper of hope,
Crossed my mind.
A blue-jeaned girl,
From the desert world.
She was hitchin' a ride.
I picked her up and it started to rain, yeah!

(Bridge)
She told me a story, Sad, and full of pain,
About a man that she once loved,
But she could not speak his name.

He said, "It would be so easy to be lovers."
She told him it had been hard, To find a friend.
She said, "We could be so good, For each other."
Who'd have ever thought, Such a love could begin,
And then end, In a day when I'd just have to make my Getaway?

I told her my story.
She said, "I feel sorry for you."
She poured me a double,
And rolled up a couple from her bag.
She said, "Pull on over.
Turn off the motor.
I'll show you a thing or two, yeah!

She said, "It would be so easy to be lovers."
I told her it had been hard, To find a friend.
She said, "We could be so good, For each other."
Who'd have ever thought, Such a love could begin,
It'll never end, In a day when we'll just have to make our Getaway. In a day...

I hit on some interesting chords, got some interesting lyrical images, and let the players take the stage. I think the guy left the girl the same day the girl left the guy, without actually telling each other, and he found her on the road. This one must run very long, singer/songwriter stuff.
