The Lyrics

Call your cable company and DEMAND the BLUEGRASS CHANNEL. If they claim to have never heard of it, get real nasty!!!Don't miss the premiere episode of the new Sci-Fi Fantasy DramaticSeries: The Bluegrass Hitchhikers on the Bluegrass ChannelThurs. June 3rd 3:15 AM (only) EDSTThis excellent series (according to Spade Graves who has a hand in the producing) is about a time traveling bluegrass band who get "time hiccups" on their way to the All Western Hemisphere JiffyLube Bluegrass Fast Pickin' Championship Contest and FREE(!!!) Lube Job Festival, in Better-Than-Nothing, Kansas. Spade passed me this unauthorized bootleg copy of the theme song. He said everyone already knows the tune.
THEME FOR THE BLUEGRASS HITCHHIKERS

Motorvatin' along a lane on a darn near moonless night
I thought I saw a rumpled form away off to my right
I breaked and got down from the cab and poked a pile of rags
It said, "It sure was nice of you; Please help me with my bags."

There was something strange about him as he spoke without a pause.
His voice was kinda reverbed and his face was wrapped in gauze.
He said his name was Howard Hughes and he rode with Jesse James,
Done lots of things with lotsa folks and he dropped a lot of names.

Chorus:
He wrote the Honeycomb Blues for the Swinging Brakeman
and taught Updike how to fight.
Learned Dewey Evans how to catch
and Tyson how to write.
He sang lead for the Su-premes
and he speaks for Ross Perot
He played the 5 string mandolin
for a guy named Bill Monroe.

We pulled into a hospital where he told me to drive.
A big nurse dressed in deathly white said,
"Elvis, 'sakes alive!
Where you been, son? We was scared,
your sheets tied to the sill."
Back in my truck, un-der my hat
was a million dollar bill.

chorus:

Don't tape over anything good,
