10000 maniacs – the earth pressed flat lyrics
detroit, l.a., boston, san francisco,
first time o’er the ocean on a plane a billion stars below me lay,
circle slowly jfk,
so much there to see inside of a week they came looking for something new
try to press it flat inside of a few days old dominion sat-rday,
arlington’s eternal flame sunday tour niagara falls in the mist.
monday i’ll be heading south new orleans the cajun sound
tuesday’s tupelo elvis’s home . . .
try to press it flat inside of a few days what a wonderful stay,
on a mule grand canyon ride on wednesday,
hope to get to denver in a day friday ride to washington,
in the glacial mountain sun hop a train for canada
to the east they came looking for something new
try to press it flat inside of a few days what a wonderful stay
