Lyrics for Tryin’ to Get Away by Grand Funk Railroad :
I been out on the road with my thumb in the air
I’m a long way from home but I just don’t care
The dust from the road makes it dry in my mouth
When it’s cold up north, that’s when I head south

‘Cause I been tryin’ to, tryin’ to get away, yeah
Tryin’ to, tryin’ to get away, yeah

I passed through New York just the other day
The smog was bad but not as bad as L.A
Sometimes I wonder what the world’s comin’ to
Sometimes I wonder what I’m gonna’ do

‘Cause I been tryin’ to, tryin’ to get away, yeah
I been tryin’ to, tryin’ to get away, yeah

I been out on the road with my thumb in the air
I’m a long way from home but I just don’t care
The dust from the road makes it dry in my mouth
When it’s cold up north, that’s when I head south

Tryin’ to, tryin’ to get away
Tryin’ to, tryin’ to get away
Tryin’ to, tryin’ to get away
Tryin’ to, tryin’ to get away

‘Cause I been tryin’ to, tryin’ to get away, yeah
I been tryin’ to, tryin’ to get away, yeah

‘Cause I been tryin’ to, tryin’ to get away, yeah, yeah, yeah
