The Lyrics

leavin home, out for the road,
I fell down before
riding along, with four wheels on the ground
I been rolling around my home

but that corner's store's so far away
I got bedsores on my bum
doctor is trying to make me stay
but I got to go rolling on

Oh Oh oh I'm a wheelchair rider
it carries me every day
I'm a wheelchair rider
and it's here that I have to stay

goodby to my old ramp at home
goodbye to the store I just passed it
I've charged it all up and I'm on my way
I've never known how long these batteries lasted..
and I spin now I'm driving it backwards
as I ride on a terrible surface
riding by I got tears in my eyes
you know you got to ride it real well
or it just seems so worthless

Oh Oh oh I'm a wheelchair rider
it carries me every day
I'm a wheelchair rider
and it's here that I have to stay

comin down on a hill I frown
feel the brakes coming on
I've got to keep on, rolling on
you know these back wheels
keep on slowin me down
and it's causin me much consternation
ou know now I can surely see
that I don't have enough in the batt'ry
to go rollin down to the downtown of cities

Oh Oh oh I'm a wheelchair rider
it carries me every day
I'm a wheelchair rider
and it's here that I have to stay

Oh Oh oh I'm a wheelchair rider
it carries me every day
I'm a wheelchair rider
and it's here that I belong
