Audioslave - Getaway Car Lyrics

The first time I saw you
You were chasing down
A cyclone
All alone in a field
With rail yards and clovers
I kept rolling on and never thought
You'd wind up chasing me

Well settle down I won't hesitate
To hit the highway
Before you lay me to waste
Settle up and I'll help you find
Something to drive
Before you drive me insane

You're tired of walking and you
Loathe the ground
The sidewalk will barely
Touch your feet and life moves
Too slowly to hold you down
With ringing hands
You take it out on me


So get yourself a car and drive it all alone
Get yourself a car and ride it on the wind

  10. Sean Peck

    I got to see Chris two weeks before his life ended, in Memphis, Tennessee where rock was born. It was when he was back with Soundgarden, unfortunately there were technical difficulties and they had to end about an hour into the set. This song has a lot of meaning to me. My momma was diagnosed with stage 4, and my girl broke up with me a month later. Exactly what this song says is what I did. I got myself a getaway car and hit the highway. It helped me tremendously. To be honest and frank, the pain still exists, but if I did not, I don't know if I'd still be here. Rest in heavenly peace Cornell, you saved my life with a lot of tears.

  11. Joe Fine
