Well, I was livin' on the road
Couldn't get a decent meal
My baby, she gave me a dirty deal
Now I'm hitchhikin' on the road to Rio
Tryin' to flag a ride from an automobile

Won't somebody stop and let me ride?
Why don't you stop and let me ride?
Won't somebody let me ride?
I'm movin' on down the line

I'm standing on the road right by the side
Nobody knows how many tears I've cried
I've even thought about suicide
I guess it must be time to take a ride

Won't somebody stop and let me ride?
Why don't you stop and let me ride?
Won't somebody let me ride?
I'm movin' on down the line

--- Guitar Solo ---

Standin' on the road right by the side
Watchin' all the cars keep passin' by
The sun's goin' down, but I don't mind
I'm gonna catch a ride if it takes all night

Won't somebody stop and let me ride?
Why don't you stop and let me ride?
Won't somebody let me ride?
I'm movin' on down the line

Now it was 2:00am and I was high and dry
These beautiful chick gave me the eye
She opened the door and I slid by her side
And we headed on down the line

I'm so glad she stopped and let me ride
Somebody finally let me ride
I'm so glad she stopped and let me ride
We're gonna boogie on down the line

Rio
One hundred miles ahead
We're gonna moving on down the line
