(voice of Woody Guthrie: I been robbed for cash and I been robbed on credit; Woke up a lot of mornings, didn't even know where I was at. The hardest Work I ever done is when I was trying to get myself a worried woman to ease My worried mind.)
All the things they said would happen to you Don't ya know they're all comin true Goin nowhere fast.
Nothing's strange as when it seems You're living out all your worst possible dreams Goin nowhere fast
Bad times, worse times, All the times in between I tangle in the shadow, stumble in the trees Goin nowhere fast
I learn my lesson And I learn it again I heard what they said, "live fast and die stupid" Goin nowhere fast My compass is spinnin Like a gamblin wheel It takes a hideous misfortune for to tell how I feel Goin nowhere fast
I threw it all away Like shoes into the street These terrible things will tear me in three Goin nowhere fast
I don't care what time will tell Just tell me if I might as well be halfway to hell Goin nowhere fast
I'm sick through my skin With silence and doom I break my back, I cry on the moon Goin nowhere fast Going nowhere fast
