Jacki said, "I'm dying
Take the words out of my mouth
I'm a long way from home, guy
And I wish I could hold out

Til the sun rises in the morning
I don't want to go at night
She'll be sleeping around now
She won't see my passing light

I don't want to say it's over
What's the point but then, oh oh oh oh oh
Here I go falling off the edge of America again."

Jackie said, "I'm freaking
Hold on, man, don't let go
Sorry for what I done to you
Just don't leave me here all on my own

Take that letter out of my back pocket
But don't read it, man, whatever you do
It's just a note and a lock of her hair
Send it back to her, it's okay man, it's cool

I don't want to talk about it
Words just cause too much pain, oh oh oh oh oh
Here I go falling off the edge of America again, oh oh oh oh oh
Here I go falling off the edge of America again."

Got my back to the Pacific
I'm a million miles from home
On a tightrope called America
With no place left to go, oh oh oh oh

Jackie says, "It's over
I can see the dawn coming up
Down on the Tenderloin
The Ice Man, he's shooting up

And all the drunks are stumbling home
But, at least, they got stars in their eyes
Now you've put me so far behind you
Do you really call this a life?

Nothing to do but to go on
Turn your collar up to the rain, oh oh oh oh oh
Here I go falling off the edge of America again, oh oh oh oh oh
Here I go falling off the edge of America again, oh oh oh oh oh
Here I go falling off the edge of America again.

Oh oh oh oh oh
Here I go falling off the edge of America again, oh oh oh oh oh...
