The Eagles Do A Truck Ad
byThomas Sullivan

Silverado, why don't you come to your senses?
You been outwitting suckers for so long now
Oh, you're a hard one
I know that you got your reasons
These people that are pawning you
Can hurt you somehow
Don't you draw the queen of Detroit, boy
She'll beat you like a sable
You know the Queen of Hearts is always your best bet

Now it seems to me some beer-holders
Have been taped upon your dashboard
But you only want the mileage that you can't get

Silverado, you ain't gettin' no younger
Your thirst and your lumber, they're keepin’ you home
And freedom, oh freedom well, that's just more people walking
Your prison is sitting in the lot all alone

Don't your sales go cold in the winter time?
The mom won't buy and the son’s on-line
It's hard to tell the night time from the day
You're losing all the guys with hos
Ain't it funny how the feeling goes, away?

Silverado, why can't you see the consensus?
Come down from your fences, open the gate
It may be rainin', but there's a rainbow above you
You better let somebody shrink you, before it's too late
