Song title: In Michigan


In Michigan

Well my mother rolled over and died in Michigan
My dog got hit by a truck and I cried in Michigan
I got drunk and puked up my guts in Michigan

But I'm alright, I'm alright, I'm alright, I'm alright
And man I'm riding here tonight in Michigan

I ran a race and came in dead last in Michigan
Yeah, I shot myself in the ass in Michigan
I was lookin' for someplace to feel free
But they busted me for just being me
In Michigan

But alright, it's alright, it's alright, it's alright
And baby I'm riding high tonight in Michigan

I ran into a little bad luck in Michigan
I met a woman ???

Baby I'm running late but you got here one hell of a state
In Michigan
Oh Michigan
