Ruby, wake your brother quiet.
I'll keep your father occupied.
He's been drinking since they downsized.
We're gone the minute that he passes out.

We'll jump the Monte Carlo
then two days down to Reno
in the bright lights and the sunshine
in the bright lights and the sunshine

Ruby, be a good girl now
and don't let your mother down.
There's no time to call your friends.
Keep it simple, that the way it is.

We'll jump the Monte Carlo
then two days down to Reno
in the bright lights and the sunshine
in the bright lights and the sunshine

and it will be different this time.
and it will be different this time.

Dad don't love you anymore.
in the bright lights
and sunshine

Ruby, be a good girl now
and don't let your mother down.
'cause we're not coming back.
We're not coming back.
