Mackenzie Blues

MacKenzie, B.C.
That's Where my baby left me
MacKenzie, B.C.
That's Where my baby left me
I got to keep on moving 'til I make it Whitehorse, Y.T.

Mile number zero, I'm here at Dawson Creek
I'm too stunned to walk, and I'm too stoned to speak
I'm wondering why I just don't go home
But I just can't face the states being there all alone
MacKenzie, B.C.
That's Where my baby left me
I got to keep on moving
    'til I make it Whitehorse, Y.T.
Mile fifty three, I'm here at Fort Saint John
The Peace River moved me and I'm moving on
I slept last night by Charlie Lake
I feasted last night on truckstop steak
MacKenzie, B.C.
That's Where my baby left me
I got to keep on moving
     'til I make it Whitehorse, Y.T.
Mile three-hundred and sixty five,
     I finally reached Watson Lake
Won't someone give me a ride for pity's sake
I'm going to write me a sign, I'm going to hang ity on the wall
Says I'm three thousand,
     three hundred and sixty five miles from Austin, Texas...
        just waiting for your call!
MacKenzie, B.C.
That's Where my baby left me
I got to keep on moving
     'til I make it Whitehorse, Y.T.
Mile nine hundred and fourteen,
     I finally crossed the city line
I'm feeling a little relaxed,
    I guess that I'm doing fine
I know she's got her life... well I've got mine
Gotta find my own strength,
     can't live in pain all the time!
MacKenzie, B.C.
That's Where my baby left me
I got to keep on moving
     'til I make it Whitehorse, Y.T.

MacKenzie, B.C.
....
MacKenzie, B.C.
....
I got to keep on moving 'til I make it Whitehorse, Y.T.
