if Tracy Chapman was Amish

You got a fast buggy

I want a ticket to anywhere

Maybe we make a deal

Maybe together we can get somewhere

Any place is better

Starting from zero, got nothing to lose

Maybe we’ll make something

Me, myself, I got nothing to prove

You got a fast buggy

I got a plan to get us out of here

I been working at the dry goods store

Managed to save just a little bit of money

Won’t have to go too far

Just ‘cross the border and into the village

You and I can both get jobs

And finally see what it means to be living

See, my old man’s got a problem

He lives with the bible, that’s the way it is

He says his body’s too old for farming

His body’s too young to look like his

My mama went off during Rumspringa

She wanted more from life than he could give

I said, somebody’s got to take care of him

I was done with school after 8th grade so that’s what I did

You got a fast buggy

Is it fast enough so we can fly away?

We gotta make a decision

Leave tonight or live and die this way

So I remember we were driving, driving in your buggy

Speed so fast, I felt like I was in a car

Village lights lay out before us

And your arm felt nice wrapped ’round my shoulder

And I had a feeling that I belonged

I had a feeling I could be someone

You got a fast buggy

We play board games to entertain ourselves

You still ain’t got a job

And I work in the market as a butter churner

I know things will get better

You’ll find work and I’ll avoid Meidung

We’ll move out of the barn

Build a big house and live in the country

So I remember when we were driving, driving in your buggy

Speed so fast, I felt like I was in a car

Village lights lay out before us

And your arm felt nice wrapped ’round my shoulder

And I had a feeling that I belonged

I had a feeling I could be someone

You got a fast buggy

I got a job that pays all our bills

You stay out praying late at the bishop’s house

See more of your minsters than you do of your kids

I’d always hoped for better

Thought maybe together you and me would find it

I got no plans, I ain’t going nowhere

So take your fast buggy and keep on driving

So I remember when we were driving, driving in your buggy

Speed so fast, I felt like I was in a car

Village lights lay out before us

And your arm felt nice wrapped ’round my shoulder

And I had a feeling that I belonged

I had a feeling I could be someone

You got a fast buggy

Is it fast enough so you can fly away?

You gotta make a decision

Leave tonight or live and die this way

like it, share it!
