The Lyrics

My friends from high school
Married their high school boyfriends
Moved into houses in the same ZIP codes
Where their parents live

But I, I could never follow
No I, I could never follow

I hit the highway in a pink RV with stars on the ceiling
Lived like a defender
Six strong hands on the steering wheel

I've been a long time gone now
Maybe someday, someday I'm gonna settle down
But I've always found my way somehow

By taking the good stuff
Taking the good stuff around
Taking the good stuff
Taking the good stuff around

I met the queen of whatever
Drank with the Canadian and smoked with the hippies
Moved with the shakers
Wouldn't kiss all the friends that they told me to

No I, I could never follow
No I, I could never follow

It's been two long months now
Since the top of the world came crashing down
And I'm getting' it back on the road now

But I'm taking the good stuff
Taking the good stuff around
I'm taking the good stuff
Taking the good stuff around
The good
The good stuff around

Well, I fought with a couple and I met myself
I opened my mouth and I heard myself
It can get pretty lonely when you show yourself
Guess I could have made it easier on myself

But I, I could never follow
No I, I could never follow

Well, I never seem to do it like anybody else
Maybe someday, someday I'm gonna settle down
If you ever want to find me I can still be found

Taking the good stuff
Taking the good stuff around
Taking the good stuff
Taking the good stuff around
