lyrics

I've packed my room, a suit and tie
some old books and guitar strings
I'm headed south by southwest
without tellin' nobody
I'm moving to Albuquerque
there's nothing more to decide
I want make it to Colorado
before the next sunrise
Please don't be mistaken
I'm not trying to force your hand
Even though your heart is broke
that wasn't my intent
Topeka isn't far enough
and Dallas just won't do
I'm moving to Albuquerque
Hello, ABQ

I'm moving to Albuquerque
far removed from what I know
my name's been through the dirt
and my friends say it's time to go
I want to wake up in the mornin'
where the mountains meet the sky
and come home in the evenin'
to a quiet, humble life
I'm sure there are valid reasons
for putting up your walls
as I'm sure you'll be understanding
when I can't return your calls
Topeka isn't far enough
and Dallas just won't do
I'm moving to Albuquerque
Hello, ABQ

Don't be confused or take offense
my roots have grown to the bone
but these heavy lungs refuse to hold
a breath for one second more
I'm moving to Albuquerque
with the hope to start again
all the tears made in the fabric
are much too large to mend
now you say it's the easy way
and you're probably correct
but when things get fucked up to a point
you know there ain't no going back
Topeka isn't far enough
and Dallas just won't do
I'm moving to Albuquerque
Hello, ABQ
