lyrics

I’m leaving tonight and you’re coming with me
Electric arc lamp lighter than air
I’m feeling fine on this devil’s airship
We’ll buzz this town
See what makes them tick

And we’ll get to San Francisco by tomorrow noon
We’re gonna get there soon
San Francisco by tomorrow noon
We’re gonna get there soon

We’ll steal some cows
So drop that anchor
Into the night with a diamond hard glow
All these cities spread out before us
All those dreams so far below

San Francisco by tomorrow noon
We’re gonna get there soon
I saw the sky crack wide open
We’re heading for the ocean
I’ll take you to a place where there’s no rain
I hope it’s not too late
Too late
