Lyrics

Looking for Lewis and Clark

 

I thought I saw some diplomat hawking secret plans in the park

I thought I saw some citizen walking through a minefield late after dark

In a world of love where it burns like Nero

You bounce a fat check and they call you a hero

In a world of love where it burns like Nero

You bounce a check and you’re called a hero

Looking for Lewis and Clark

 

I was standing alone in the Public Garden

I was thinking about the late Tim Hardin

Well when Tim got to heaven he was on the lam

From a kind of world he didn’t understand

No one gave Tim reason to believe

So he just packed his bags to leave

Looking for Lewis and Clark

He was looking for Lewis and Clark

 

I thought I saw my government running away with my heart

I thought I heard the national anthem sung badly at Fenway Park

In his tangled web does the master deceive

Only himself while the rest of us grieve

Looking for Lewis and Clark

Looking for Lewis and Clark

Looking for Lewis and Clark

 

I said Louie Louie Louie Louie Lou

 

Looking for Lewis and Clark
