20 long miles from town, my old car broke down
The clutch is shot & the sound is so hot
Oh what I'd give to be home

19 miles from town, my old car broke down
The battery's dead, man like I said
Oh what I'd give to be home

18 miles from town, my old car broke down
The fan belt's slippin' & the engine's missin'
Oh what I'd give to be home restin' my bones

17 miles from town, my old car broke down
Just my luck, I've got the fuel pump's stuck
Oh what I'd give to be home

(When the sun's so high up in the sky)
& I'm tryin' to get home to my baby
(When I get that far, I'm gonna get rid of this car)
It's got to go, it's got to & I don't mean maybe

16 miles from town, my old short broke down
My tire's down, no spare around
Oh what I'd give to be home

(instrumental)

15 miles from town, my old car broke down
The battery's dead, man like I said
Oh what I'd give to be home

14 miles from town, my old short broke down
...& fade
