Dispatch - Midnight Lorry Lyrics




I walk down the road looking for my tribunal
Like tom and huck stumbling down the aisle of their own funeral
Please goddess of the road, get me on my way

You see my love just left me so I'm on my own
And my heart's banged up looking for a foster home
And the highway moon is getting me dizzy

I see a mirage of medusa, a top of an Appaloosa
What I wouldn't do to be with you and your caboosa
Whispering to Mr. Beck now who's the real loser

Here come again the midnight Lorry
I think I might be moving along
There's a lot of places I got to get to
I know you're out there but I never even met you
Take me to the land of no worry
And then I'll just keep playing this song
Mr. Driver I hear the music playin' and I see the lights
Will you throw me a ride

A PYT ushers me back to the rear
I haven't been many places and I definitely haven't been here
To think I was just a lonely soul in the cold with my thumb out
And now I'm rolling a smoke and being told to stick my tongue out

We bounced and blared and so did the Lorry
She teased my hair and held me close with a story
Of rag tag visions as the moonlight poured in
Second star to the right and straight on til' morning

Here come again the midnight Lorry
I think I might be moving along
There's a lot of places I got to get to
I know you're out there but I never even met you
Take me to the land of no worry
And then I'll just keep playing this song
Mr. Driver I hear the music playin' and I see the lights
Will you throw me a ride

Looking at her face was like looking at the sun
She said you can't ask of everybody what you don't ask of one
Either way, we got today and that's all we may be allowed
I know if we hold it together, there's real love we can bring about

Here come again the midnight Lorry
I think I might be moving along
There's a lot of places I got to get to
I know you're out there but I never even met you
Take me to the land of no worry
And then I'll just keep playing this song
Mr. Driver I hear the music playin and I see the lights
Will you throw me a ride

Here come again the midnight Lorry
I think I might be moving along
There's a lot of places I got to get to
I know you're out there but I never even met you
Take me to the land of no worry
And then I'll just keep playing this song
Mr. Driver I hear the music playin' and I see the lights
Will you throw me a ride

Here come
Here come
Here come

Here come
Here come
Here come

    Lyrics!


    I walk down the road looking for my tribunal
    Like Tom and Huck stumbling down the aisle of their own funeral
    Please goddess of the road, get me on my way
    You see my love just left me so I’m on my own
    And my heart's banged up looking for a foster home
    The highway moon is getting me dizzy
    I see a mirage of medusa
    A top of an Appaloosa
    What I wouldn't do to be with you and your caboosa
    Whispering to Mr. Beck now who’s the real loser


    Here come again the midnight Lorry
    I think I might be moving along
    There's a lot of places I got to get to
    I know you’re out there but I never even met you
    Take me to the land of no worry and then I'll just keep playing this song
    Mr. Driver I hear the music playin' and I see the lights
    Will you throw me a ride?


    A pretty young thing ushers me back to the rear
    I haven’t been many places and I definitely haven’t been here
    To think I was just a lonely soul in the cold with my thumb out
    Now I'm rolling a smoke and being told to stick my tongue out
    We bounced and blared and so did the Lorry
    She teased my hair and held me close with a story
    Of ragtag visions as the moonlight poured in
    Second star to the right and straight on 'til morning


    Here come again the midnight Lorry
    I think I might be moving along
    There's a lot of places I got to get to
    I know you're out there but I never even met you
    Take me to the land of no worry and then I'll just keep playing this song
    Mr. Driver I hear the music playin' and I see the lights
    Will you throw me a ride?


    Looking at her face was like looking at the sun
    She said you can't ask of everybody what you don’t ask of one
    Either way, we got today and that’s all we may be allowed
    I know that if we hold it together
    There's real love we can bring about


    Here come again the midnight Lorry
    I think I might be moving along
    There's a lot of places I got to get to
    I know you're out there but I never even met you
    Take me to the land of no worry and then I'll just keep playing this song
    Mr. Driver I hear the music playing and I see the lights
    Will you throw me a ride?


    Here comes
    Here comes
    Here comes


    Here come again the midnight Lorry
    I think I might be moving along
    There's a lot of places I got to get to
    I know you're out there but I never even met you
    Take me to the land of no worry and then I'll just keep playing this song
    Mr. Driver I hear the music playing and I see the lights
    Will you throw me a ride?


    Here comes

    "Midnight Lorry" is special song about a young man who fell down on his luck in his hometown (girlfriend cheats on him, loses his job at the bakery) and with nothing to stay home for, he packs a knapsack and starts walking west.
    As days go by, he gets picked up here and there, but doesn't make much progress. As the summer nights start to get a little colder, he starts to wonder if leaving was a good idea at all.
    Then, late one night in the middle of nowhere while sitting at a roadside picnic table, he lifts his head from resting on his backpack and looks eastward where the sound of music and a Detroit diesel engine are cutting through the silence of the night. Pretty soon he sees an array of lights that cover the whole spectrum. They seem to be married to the same rumbling. Though he's never experienced anything like it and knows well the bleak mercy of the road, he's never wished harder for anything in his life. He stands up in the blinding light as the music gets louder and sticks his thumb out.

    DISPATCH “Leap and the net will appear.... (eventually)”. Better to chance on possibility, than to perish in purgatory. Much love. Your music feeds my wandering heart.

    Love the story/inspiration behind this song. As a hitchhiker myself, this song is beautiful. The road can get lonely sometimes.. directionless.. but this music is what keeps the spirit going.
