The Hitchhiker Lyrics

Thoughts in time and out of season
The hitchhiker
Stood by the side of the road
And leveled his thumb
In the calm calculus of reason

Hi. how you doin'? I just got back into town L.A.
I was out on the desert for awhile
"Riders on the storm"
Yeah. in the middle of it
"Riders on the storm"
Right
"Into this world we're born"
Hey, listen, man, I really got a problem
"Into this world we're thrown"
When I was out on the desert, ya know
"Like a dog without a bone
An actor out on loan"
I don't know how to tell you
"Riders on the storm"
But, ah, I killed somebody
"There's a killer on the road"
No
"His brain is squirming like a toad"
It's no big deal, ya know
I don't think anybody will find out about it, but
"Take a long holiday"
Just, ah
"Let your children play"
This guy gave me a ride, and ah
If you give this man a ride"
Started giving me a lot of trouble
"Sweet family will die"
And I just couldn't take it, ya know
"Killer on the road"
And I wasted him
Yeah
