Last night I was cool at the pool hall
Held the table for eleven games
Nothign was easier than the first seven
Beat a woman with varicose veins
She stopped to see herself in the mirror
Fix her hair and hide her veins
But she lost the game

Next day I went to the dentist
He pulled some teeth and I lost some blood
We'd like to thank you for the cards you sent us
My wives and I were all choked up

I recall how Caesar and Cleo
Made love in the Milky Way
They needed boats and armies to get there
I know there's a better way

I saw the movie and I read the book
But when it happened to me I was sure glad I had what it took
To get away

Gotta get away
Gotta get away
Gotta get away
Gotta get away

I'm makin' another delivery
Of chemicals and sacred roots
I'll hold what you have to give me
But I'll use what I have to use
The lasers are in the lab
The old man is dressed in all white clothes
Everybody says he's mad
No one knows the things he knows

No one knows
No one knows
No one knows
No one knows

I'm looking in every hallway
I still can't accept the stares
I'm sleeping with many covers
I'm warm now so I don't care
I'm thinking of no one in my mind
Sedan delivery is a job I know I'll keep
It sure was hard to find

Hard to find
Hard to find
Hard to find
Hard to find

    General CommentI would say that this song has something to do with Neil's love for cars. It says something like that in his biography, 'Shakey'. Great song though.

    General CommentGreat grunge song written 10 years before the grunge movement took off. Neil Young is def the godfather of grunge.

    Yeah, I think the song is about a drug runner. Love the imagery in the song- playing pool with a woman with vericose veins, losing blood at the dentist, the mad scientist in the lab making drugs. Great sleazy, grungy song. Like the Chrome Dreams version better than later versions of the song.
