Pre-Alice Cooper Lyrics

Hitch Hike

(William Stevenson, Clarence Paul, Marvin Gaye)

Well, I'm going to Chicago
That's the last place my baby stayed
(Hitch hike)
Hitch hike baby
(Hitch hike baby)
I'm gonna pack up all my bags
I'm gonna leave this town right away
(Hitch hike)
Hitch hike children
(Hitch hike children)

I'm gonna find that girl
If I have to hitch hike 'round the world

Well, Chicago city
That's what the sign on the freeway read
(Hitch hike)
Hitch hike baby
(Hitch hike baby)
I'm gonna keep right on looking yeah
Before I just go out of my head
(Hitch hike)
Hitch hike baby
(Hitch hike baby)

I'm gonna find that girl
If I have to hitch hike 'round the world

So c'mon c'mon baby hitch hike
(Hitch hike)
Hitch hike baby
(Hitch hike baby)
Hitch hike
(Hitch hike)
Hitch hike children
(Hitch hike children)
Hitch hike
(Hitch hike)
Hitch hike
(Hitch hike)
So c'mon c'mon hitch hike yeah

Hitch hike baby
Ow hitch hike children

Now well, I'm going to St. Louis
But my next stop will be in L.A.
(Hitch hike)
Hitch hike baby
(L.A.)
Ain't got no money in my pockets
So I'm gonna have to hitch hike all the way
(Hitch hike)
Hitch hike baby
(Hitch hike baby)

I'm gonna find that girl
If I have to hitch hike 'round the world

So c'mon c'mon baby hitch hike

(Hitch hike children)
