"Waitin' For The Bus" as written by and Billy F Gibbons Joe Michael Hill....
Have mercy, been waitin' for the bus all day
Have mercy, been waitin' for the bus all day
I got my brown paper bag and my take-home pay

Have mercy, old bus be packed up tight
Have mercy, old bus be packed up tight
Well, I'm glad just to get on and home tonight

Right on, that bus done got me back
Right on, that bus done got me back
Well, I'll be ridin' on the bus till I Cadillac

    General CommentWaitin' for the Bus/ Jesus Just Left Chicago are two great songs to start off Tres Hombres. I have this bad boy on vinyl and love it.

    My InterpretationIf you look up Van Halen's version of Waitin' On the Bus on YouTube, you will hear David Lee Roth's interpretation of this song... He asked before starting the riff, "How many of you have been to prison? This song is about going to the big house!" It makes a lot of sense, seems like it is about getting out of prison and loading onto a bus to get home "to my cadillac". That's just my interpretation... of the situation... (Outkast quote)... J-Rock
