Flying High

by Country Joe & the Fish




I'm stuck on the LA freeway,
Got rainwater in my boots,
My thumb's done froze, can't feel my toes,
I feel a little destitute.
Wheels throwing water all over my axe
And Mr.Jones won't lend me a hand.
Up come two cats in a Cadillac
And they say,"Won't you hop in, man?"
I went flying high
All the way, all the way.

The one's that's driving's got a bowler hat,
The other's got a fez on his head.
They turn around and grin and I grin back
But not a word was said.
So I took out my harp and I played 'em a tune,
I could see they were diggin' it,
Then the one with the fez, well he turns and he says,
"We'd like to help you make your trip."
And I went flying high
All the way- all the way.

He said,"We can't leave him out in the rain,
He just might freeze and die,
So why not put him on a plane
And send him home in the sky?"
So they took me to the LA airport,
Laid twenty dollars in my hand.
Well, I paid my fair, I'm in the air
Flying back home again.
And I went flying high
All the way, yeah, all the way, all the way,
You know I went flying high all the way,
Don't you know I went flying high all the way
