Steve Goodman - The I Don't Know Where I'm Goin' But I'm Goin' Nowhere In A Hurry Blues lyrics

Miss Beverly Jones had a PhD in Physics
And she went to town to look for some work
Everyplace she applied they said that she was qualified
To be a secretary or a clerk
The word got out on the day she was born
But she was twenty years getting the news
And the "I don't know where I'm going
But I'm going nowhere in a hurry" blues

My friend Fred felt lucky last Tuesday
And he took himself out to the track
He was armed with a hot tip and a hundred dollar bill
But that boy had to hitchhike back
The horse that he bet on was leading all the way
And then it threw off one of its shoes
And got the "I don't know where I'm going
But I'm going nowhere in a hurry" blues

And it's I don't know where I'm going
I do not know how long the journey will last
And it's I don't know where I'm going
The future's one big mirror of the past
And I've been losing so long, that it looks just like winning
Kick me again and I'll come up grinning
All my time I've spent standing still
Its the world that's spinnin' round so fast

And it was on a Sunday morning
About a hundred years ago
The message came without a warning
Though everybody'd told him so
The last thing that General Custer said
When he looked up and saw all the Sioux
Was, "I don't know where I'm going
But I'm going nowhere in a hurry too".
A fatal dose of the "I don't know where I'm going
But I'm going nowhere in a hurry" blues.
