Let us be lovers, we'll marry our fortunes togetherI've got some real estate here in my bagSo we bought a pack of cigarettes and Mrs. Wagner's piesAnd we walked off to look for AmericaCathy, I said as we boarded a Greyhound in PittsburghMichigan seems like a dream to me nowIt took me four days to hitchhike from SaginawI've gone to look for AmericaLaughing on the bus, playing games with the facesShe said the man in the gabardine suit was a spyI said, be careful, his bowtie is really a cameraToss me a cigarette, I think there's one in my raincoatWe smoked the last one an hour agoSo I looked at the sceneryShe read her magazineAnd the moon rose over an open fieldCathy, I'm lost, I said though I knew she was sleepingAnd I'm empty and aching and I don't know whyCounting the cars on the New Jersey TurnpikeThey've all come to look for AmericaAll come to look for AmericaAll come to look for America
