lyrics

Headin’ west on I-80
I saw them standin’ there
On a road outside a truckstop
Summer wind in their hair
Her thumb stuck out like a rifle
Aimed to plug the heart of an ace
He held a battered guitar case
There was sadness in his face

As we rolled along in my rattlin’ van
He told me the cause of his blues
He’d bought a bag of Iowa road weed
Too desperate to choose
The kid was gone when they figured out
It wasn’t gonna do a thing
Then he took his guitar
He played it hard, and he began to sing:

It was the worst bag of weed
I ever did buy
All of the cough but none of the high
Just the worst bag of weed
I had the bad luck to try
All of the headache
None of the high
It was all of the headache
And none of the high

The woman spoke up
both quiet and pissed
And took off some of his power
Why dontcha tell him
It was my money ya lost
When your big-time deal went sour?
His nostrils flared and his lips turned red
As he tightened up a string
Then he strummed his guitar
Played it real hard, and he began to sing:

You’re like the worst bag of weed
I ever did buy
All the confusion and none of the high
Just like the worst bag of weed
I had the bad luck to try
All of the headache
And none of the high
You are all of the headache, baby
None of the high

When we stopped
She slung her bag and walked
And he froze up and slumped
Let’s get back on the road, he said
I know when I been dumped
It’s happened so many times to me
I do not feel the sting
Then he took his guitar
He played it hard, and he began to sing:

It was the worst bag of weed
I ever did buy
All the paranoia, and none of the high
Just the worst bag of weed
I had the bad luck to try
All of the headache, none of the high
One wicked headache, dude
None of the high
All of the headache
And none of the high
