Eucalyptus Trail

  • written by Rickie Lee Jones


    All my old friends
    have gone underground
    They fall so hard
    I am the last of my kind in this town
    Out in the yard...

    my feet hardly touch the ground.
    my feet hardly touch the ground.

    Life moves on the Eucalyptus Trail
    Vishnu’s Ocean, Wagon-wheel motel.
    Cowboy fairies floating all around
    Make-believe that held us
    to the ground
    Finally let’s go.

    Turn the wheel, I’ll be on my way.
    Turn the wheel, I’ll be on my way.

    I want to be the one you love,
    I can be the one.
    I want to be the one you love,
    I can be the one.
    I want to be the one you love,
    Let me be the one.
    I want to be the one you love,
    I can be the one.

    Stop at any beach,
    Wagon-wheel motel.
    Vishnu’s Ocean,
    and the Eucalyptus Trail.
