(John Hiatt)

I didn't say we wouldn't hurt anyone That's how you learn, you just get burned But, we don't have to feel like dirt anymore Though love's not earned baby, it's our turn

We were always looking for true north With our heads in the clouds, just a little off course I left the motor running
Now, if you're feeling down and out
 Chorus Come on baby, drive south
With the one you love
Come on baby, drive south
With the one you love

I'm not talkin' 'bout retreatin', not this girl Gonna take our stand, in this Chevy van Windows open on the rest of the world Holdin' hands on the way to Dixieland 
We've been tryin' to turn our lives around Since we were little kids
It's been wearin' us down
Don't turn away now, darlin'
Let's fire it up and wind it out
 Chorus 
I heard your mama callin', I think she was stallin'
Don't know who she was talkin' to baby, me and you

We could go down with a smile on
I ain't gonna pack my nylons,
Got to leave our legs showin'
It gets hot where we're goin'

We were always looking for true north With our heads in the clouds, just a little off course I left the motor running
Now, if you're feeling down and out
 Chorus
