88K From Alice

1.
well I been building it about bringing the boys to the heart
I had it all worked out to take that town apart
they got us stayin’ at the Gap Hotel
it’s no dump but it’s sure no palace
and I’m still 88k from Alice and the truck won’t start

2.
we had smiles on our faces as we drove out of Barrow Creek
that was only this morning but it seems more like a week
I saw a squashed goanna on the road back there
I tell you I know how he feels
88k from Alice, and no damned wheels

BR.
and it’s only a couple of hours till we start the show
will we tie it up with wire just to keep the show on the road
can you fix it for someone to come out and give us a tow?
88k from Alice and the truck won’t go

well I been building it about bringing the boys to the heart
I had it all worked out to take that town apart
and we’ve been all pumped up to play
but I think we just ran out of luck
