This Kind Old Bus...
This Kind Old Bus…

This kind old bus what a beautiful site with black smoke rolling around the tail lights.

From Maine to Wyoming in a single bound on seats too close 3 feet from the ground all for a small fee of 169. Don’t figure we talk of a plane or even a train but decided to take the dammed old bus! And leave the driving to them.

I’mon this bus

Leaving everything behind

Going from Canada to home

Omaha is so friendly and kind

I meet this girl

So sweet & fine

You say I must write in your book

You rekindled my thoughts that

There are still some good ones left

I hope your trip is a safe & happy one
