You were just like me, you were one big bruise
In the game of life you were playing to lose
You were Jesse James, I was William Tell
You were Daniel Webster, I was the Devil himself

Two characters in search of a country song
Just make-believe but so in love
Two characters been listening all night long
For voices from Nashville above

Hell on eighteen wheels at a hundred per
We went crashing through the jersey barrier
But the road went on over dale and hill
You were Calamity Jane and I was Wild Bill...

    General Comment"at a hundred per" is such a beautiful contraction.

    General Commenti believe that the title of this song is a direct reference to luigi pirandello's play, "six characters in search of an author."
