From the Concert in Central Park

"Let us be lovers we'll marry our fortunes together."
"I've got some real estate here in my bag."
So we bought a pack of cigarettes and Mrs. Wagner pies
And we walked off to look for America.

"Kathy," I said as we boarded a Greyhound in Pittsburgh,
"Michigan seems like a dream to me now...
It took me four days to hitchhike from Saginaw.
I've come to look for America."

Laughing on the bus; Playing games with the faces...
She said the man in the gabardine suit was a spy.
I said "Be careful, his bowtie is really a camera..."

"Toss me a cigarette, I think there's one in my raincoat."
"We smoked the last one an hour ago."
So I looked at the scenery, she read her magazine.
And the moon rose over an open field...

"Kathy, I'm lost," I said, though I knew she was sleeping.
"I'm empty and aching and I don't know why."
Counting the cars on the New Jersey Turnpike:
They've all come to look for America...
