(voice of Woody Guthrie: I been robbed for cash and I been robbed on credit;
woke up a lot of mornings, didn't even know where I was at. The hardest
work I ever done is when I was trying to get myself a worried woman to ease
my worried mind.)

All the things they said would happen to you
don't ya know they're all comin true
goin nowhere fast.

nothing's strange as when it seems
you're living out all your worst possible dreams
goin nowhere fast

bad times, worse times,
all the times in between
I tangle in the shadow, stumble in the trees
goin nowhere fast

I learn my lesson
and I learn it again
I heard what they said, "live fast and die stupid"
goin nowhere fast
my compass is spinnin
like a gamblin wheel
it takes a hideous misfortune for to tell how I feel
goin nowhere fast

I threw it all away
like shoes into the street
these terrible things will tear me in three
goin nowhere fast

I don't care what time will tell
just tell me if I might as well be halfway to hell
goin nowhere fast

I'm sick through my skin
with silence and doom
I break my back, I cry on the moon
goin nowhere fast
going nowhere fast
