lyrics

Bought a secondhand van
And headed west on the interstate
Had a mind to get a bite
And a bite I got and a bite I gave

She asked me if I had a light
In the back a band played “Voodoo Child”
Think I mumbled somethin’ dumb
She said “let’s dance a little while”

Pretty soon the room was gettin’ hot
Coulda’ left but I bought a beer
Felt my skin begin to scream
When she whispered in my ear

CHORUS:

Time waits for no man
Time waits for no man
Time waits for no man
Time waits
For no man

She walked and talked me to the van
Opened up, she pushed me in
We toked and stroked for seven days
In a fit of lust, in a fit of sin

On the seventh night we took a breath
She sent me out to get a pint
When I came back with a fifth of gin
My secondhand van was gone in the night

CHORUS

Sat my butt down in the road
Coulda’ laughed and I coulda’ cried
Smelled the sage and the creosote
Stuck my thumb out for a ride

Bought a secondhand van
And headed west on the interstate
Had a mind to get a bite
And a bite I got and a bite I gave
