lyrics

Written by Jay Cobb Anderson

black ice on the highway won't you slide me right back home
I been climbin' through the mountains, I been cutting through the snow
well I'm on my way to Stumptown where I got a lot of friends
where your drinks are never dry, where the sidewalks always wet, so

take me back where I won't get pushed around
where all the girls are beautiful, and everyone is down
it's a pretty little city, it's a damn dirty town
hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah
we're Portland bound

now I've been out a ramblin teaching lessons I been learnin
in the deserts and the canyons, with the smell of diesel burnin
not everyone I meet is always kind and understandin
so I'll spit into the wind, grab the wheel until we've landed

right back there where I won't get pushed around
where all the girls are beautiful, and everyone is down
it's a pretty little city, it's a damn dirty town
hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah
we're Portland bound

now I've rode a lot of roads, and seen a great and many places
but I long to be right back among the strange and rain stained faces
where living free and easy is the general consensus
and ya still can raise a smile from all the hip and the pretentious
