Nine miles of two-strand topped with barbed wire
Good shelter down there on the valley floor,

That's not what I'm chasing. I was a rich man before yesterday.
I left my farm on the freeway.
They're busy building airports on the south side
And the big road's pushing through along the valley floor.

That's not what I'm chasing. I was a rich man before yesterday.
Looks like my farm is a freeway.
They forgot they told us what this old land was for.
This was no Southfork, it was no Ponderosa.

That's not what I'm chasing. I was a rich man before yesterday.
When I left my farm under the freeway.
