Randy Newman and Jimmy Webb.

Prairie Fever

It's 9 o'clock, the sky is green
and I'm ridin' into town on fume.
I need a full tank of gas, a lemonade kicker
and a new pair of Fruit of the Loom.
Cuz the pair I have is full of holes
I've been tearin' on them since Muscle Shoals.

Leave me alone, I've got nothing to say
I just want some breathing space.
Just give me lemonade, I'll sit over there
and then I'll be out of your face.
Don't wanna talk to anybody or hear the life story
'bout your daddy's horse that he named Bound for Glory.

I'm moving on, got a place to go
and I'll be there by the end of the week.
It's been good so far, I've been doin' pretty well
I think I'm on a wining streak.
If I make it this year, I'm gonna buy me a farm
and have pretty senoritas under each arm.
