"Slide Machine" as written by and R P St John....
Down south where they use the slide machine
Where the gods of old are heard but seldom seen
And here I been just stuck up in between
Trying to, trying to, trying to get back to you
Trying to, trying to, trying to get back to you

Well the slide machine it sweeps bones right off the road
For the tandem trucks and the moats that they towed
And me, I've just been looking for one going slow
Trying to, trying to, trying to get back to you
Trying to, trying to, trying to get back to you

My woman here she's got a dozen names
She's sought by soldiers and they try to keep her tame
and her rewards will leave them, just the same
Trying to, trying to, trying to get back to you
Trying to, trying to, trying to get back to you

Down south where they use the slide machine
Where the gods of cold are heard but seldom seen
And here I been just stuck up in between
Trying to, trying to, trying to get back to you
Trying to, trying to, trying to get back to you
