lyrics

This ol’ bus could drive itself along this highway
But this ol’ guitar’ll need a tune before the show
I just wish you could be here right beside me
It gets lonesome being out on the road

But this LA freeway is always good for dying
But ol’ Sis she done rosined up her bow
Sometimes a song is only good for crying
When leaving’s a long way to go

Susanna don’t you cry babe
It won’t be long til I’m home
Susanna don’t you cry babe
It won’t be long til I’m gone

Townes is up there waiting up to greet us
With that mischief grin and mad dog margaritas
He needed you, but did he ever need us?
Don’t matter now, he’s got you, and I’m on my way

Cuz this LA freeway is only good for dyin
I’m hittin’ this soldier’s joy hard as I can
Gotta little luck left but ain’t for lack of tryin
Gotta get back to being in your arms again

Susanna don’t you cry babe
It won’t be long til I’m home
Susanna don’t you cry babe
It won’t be long til I’m gone
