After two thousand came two thousand and one
From springtime in Arizona 'til the fall in Monterey

She went around without a warning put me in the wall
And we went on to Indianapolis, Indiana in May
Well the Brickyard's there to crucify anyone who will not learn
But I was down in the might-have-beens and an old pal good as died

And in June up in Michigan we were robbed at Belle Isle
And I'd blown off almost everyone when my motor let go
New England, Ontario we died in the dirt
So we came to Road America where we burned up at the lake
