ROADKILL CAFE Lisa Winter

Someday I'd like to play
At the Roadkill, Roadkill Cafe
I'm gonna step on the gas
And I ain't lookin'
Cause my home's in these strings anyway
Well, I have roamed far and wide
Comin' in with the tide
and I'll chase all my dreams 'til I die
Cause you know someday
I'd like play at the Roadkill Cafe

I was driving down the highway
On the 401, I was just about to Windsor
When I noticed something
To my right "Tonight Live Music"
At the Roadkill Cafe

So I caught up with the owner
Just my luck he's in
Hey, we got a cancellation
Maybe you'd fill in
But we'd only like your music
If you've got something to say
Well I do and so I said

You know I play to the rhythm
Of a different drum
But this melody's a catchin'
You can get you some
You can quote me verbatim
Looks like my someday has come

Someday I'm gonna to play
At the Roadkill, Roadkill Cafe
I'm gonna step on the gas
And I ain't lookin'
Cause my home's in these strings anyway
Well, I have roamed far and wide
Comin' in with the tide
And I'll chase all my dreams 'til I die
Cause you know someday
I'd like play at the Roadkill Cafe

Like a steam locomotive
Gaining momentum
Like a finger on the trigger of a loaded gun
There ain't nothin' between us
This song and this strum
We are over the rainbow
We are having some fun
Cause it's the day
I get to play at that Roadkill Cafe

Someday I'd like to play
At the Roadkill, Roadkill Cafe
Gonna step on the gas
And I ain't lookin'
Cause my heart's in these strings anyway
Well I have roamed far and wide
Comin' in with the tide
And I'll chase all my dreams 'til I die
And you know someday
I'm gonna play at the Roadkill Cafe

So I'm playin' at the cafe and
Imagine my surprise
When in walks a detective
And these paparazzi spies
Wantin' to know if I sing covers
Of some other famous guys

Well it's a fine ultimatum to sing or die
And if you speak my language
You are welcome to ride
To deliver the message
That my someday has arrived
(don't you know)

Someday I'd like to play
At that Roadkill, Roadkill Cafe
I'm gonna step on the gas
And I ain't lookin'
Cause my home's in these strings anyway
Well I have roamed far and wide
Comin' in with the tide
And I'll chase all my dreams 'til I die
Cause you know someday
I'm gonna play at the Roadkill Cafe

So they changed the name last summer
To the alibi
You can show up incognito
Play your music live
Seems the sheriff hunt musicians
Wanted dead or alive

And that's the story of the day
I got to play at the
Roadkill, Roadkill Cafe
