Old Black Roller
There ain't no telling where I'd go
If I lived in a yellow trailer
I'd roll right down to Mexico
There'll be caution in the wind
And phone calls coming in
I'll drive until I can't remember when…
I wish I knew how to ride a pony
How to brush his coat and treat him right
'cause if I knew how to ride a pony
We'd ride along the beach at night
There'll be seagulls in the air
and whitecaps everywhere
We'll ride until the wind sings out a prayer
I spent my life in a yellow trailer
I never made it to Cancún
I got no wheels on my broken trailer
my pony passed away last June
You can dream about a girl
or things that never were
You can cry about the night
or reinvent your life
You can live inside a candy-colored world
like my yellow trailer
I used to live in a yellow trailer
