what I heard…

they left town headin’ East on 30…goin’ towards Ohio…had plans to wind up on the coast…wanted to go to New York City…see somethin’ big for a change…a different scene…

had no money to speak of…slept in the Chevy on the side of the road…rest areas…lush green hills of Pennsylvania…missed deer by inches…heavy fog rolled into valleys makin’ it hard on ’em…but the two were determined…they’d get there one way or another…

and she was a real pretty girl…got voted homecoming queen…nice and friendly too…nobody knew what she saw in him…a roughian…tattooed up with long greasy hair…had a beer belly too…no-one could quite figure it out…

the girl had plans when she got to New York…the tall blonde wanted to be a dancer…she’d taken classes back home when she was just a kid…always dreamed of bein’ some high kickin’ Rockette…saw ’em on TV years ago in Macy’s Thanksgiving day parade…said right then…,I wanna be one of them…

heard they got to New York and she left him…got tired of bein’ broke all the time…never did become a dancer…spent her days and nights lookin’ for somethin’ magical to take place…somethin’ that would transcend her…take her over to the other side…

we’re all lookin’ to go over to the other side…anywhere but where we’re at…that’s all she wanted…just somethin’ better…wanted Heaven here on earth…that’s what she wanted…

that’s what I heard…
