Well, I left my home out on the great High Plains Headed for some new terrain Standin' on the highway with my coffee cup A-wonderin' who was gonna pick me up I had my hopes up high, I never thought that I Would ever wonder why I ever said good-by I had my hopes up high Well, the first ride I got was in a dynamite truck The driver kept a-tellin' me his bad luck As we swerved around the curves I began to shout Hey-ey mister would you let me out? I had my hopes up high, I never though that I Would ever wonder why I ever said good-by I had my hopes up high And the next ride I got was with a man in trouble The beard on his face was all in a stubble Runnin' from the law he was goin' ninety-nine I said hey-ey mister, you're out of your mind I had my hopes up high, I never thought that I Would ever wonder why I ever said good-by I had my hopes up high Oh, the next ride I got was with a preacher man Told me that the wicked would be buried in sand Don't know why I did it but I lost control Hey-ey papa, would you save my soul? I had my hopes up high, I never thought that I Would ever wonder why I ever said good-by I had my hopes up high And I finally got a ride on a carnival train Nearly blew away in a hurricane I got to thinkin' 'bout that preacher down in Louisianne Sittin' on the Delta Siftin' sand I had my hopes up high, I never thought that I Would ever wonder why I ever said good-by I had my hopes up high
