Road Rage Blues (Horatio's Ride)

1. ‘Twas in the year of 1903 ... the 23rd day of May
Dr. Harotio Jackson set out from Frisco by the bay ...
Yes, it was a fifty dollar wager that had prompted the whole ordeal
To cross the entire US of A for the first time in an automobile
2. So, with his trusty dog and mechanic ... Bud and Sewell, respectively
They headed straight for the East Coast with thick googles on all three
Yes, in his open-top 2 cylinder ... Winton, they began
Defying unpaved ‘n dusty, ole roads ... for no highways had yet stretched this land
3. Up through the Rocky Mountains with no fuel pump for to aide
Having to drive in reverse up the steep, treacherous, deathly grades
Then down through the swamps and the barren plains in 2 months time They came ... 
at last to New York City ‘n to immediate national acclaim
4. The mad doctor from Vermont ... they had called him before …
Now a hero in their eyes ... Horatio Nelson Jackson with Bud and Sewell by his side
Yeah, I guess it just goes to show you ... If you’re patient and you believe
And keep your eyes set on the prize ... you’re bound to eventually succeed
5. So, listen all you heated motorists ... yes, you drivers with road rage
Thank your lucky stars you’re sitting on a road that’s smooth and paved
And the next time you feel like lashing-out at your neighbor on the road
Just think of ole Horatio’s ride ‘n it’ll surely lighten your load
Yes, just think of ole Horatio’s drive ‘n be grateful you’re even on a road!
