Maybe a bus trip to Milwaukee
find an all-night blues club
drink one many longnecks
and sleep down at the Y

rent a car and just go driving
I’ll ride the night in style
go past the girls on the main drag
with the Rolling Stones up loud

I’ve got forty-four dollars and twenty-three cents

gambling boats just across the state line
though the boat never leaves the shore
free drinks at the blackjack table
try to turn it into more

check into a $30 motel
next to the interstate
down a pizza with the cheapest
whiskey you can take

long as I remember
I had more feelings than I had plans
long as I remember
I’ve got better stories like the one
in Ashland when I sent myself to hell

the first one down makes you sleepy
like your sleep it never could
the next one shuts your heart and lungs down
it’ll shut ‘em down for good
it’s what it costs to kill a man
in the state of Ohio

“Pike 27 plays rock and roll: jangly, smart, sometimes noisy, usually joyful, always passionate. RIYL REM, Alejandro Escovedo, and Elvis Costello in all of their genre-crossing forms.” — CityBeat Midpoint Music Festival guide
