In St. Paul lyrics

(To the tune of "Railroad Bill")

In St. Paul, in St. Paul
Winter comes at the end of fall
Ride, ride, ride

Tuesday night I heard the wind
Thought to myself, now winter begins
Ride, ride, ride.

I've always been a rambling man
I ride on the thumb of my right hand,
Ride, ride, ride.

I'm on the shoulder of Highway 12,
I'm going west, you take care of yourself
Ride, ride, ride.

Heading for Billings, Missoula, and Butte,
Heading west by the scenic route,
Ride, ride, ride.

Soon I'll be in sunny LA,
Acting in the movies for ten grand a day,
Ride, ride, ride.

Buy me a house in Malibu,
Buy me a sports car, and maybe two,
Ride, ride, ride.

I'll be No. 1 of all leading men
I'll never have to suffer ever again
Ride, ride, ride

In St. Paul, in St. Paul
Winter comes at the end of fall
Ride, ride, ride
