Gotta Get Away
The Black Keys Lyrics


I got paid when I was on the road
In a heartbeat, mama said mama said
You got a one track mind, but you ain't gonna get all the time
She wasn't lyin'

I went from San Berdoo to Kalamazoo
Just to get away from you
I searched far and wide, hopin' I was wrong
But baby all the good women are gone

My rent's down, got used up
On gasoline, know what I mean, what I mean
Atlanta, GA by the end of the day
No other way, that's what I say

I went from San Berdoo to Kalamazoo
Just to get away from you
I searched far and wide, hopin' I was wrong
But baby all the good women are gone

And everything I had to say
Wish we'd gone so far away
Well now I
Can't stay

Blacktop, I can't stop
For no one, it's no fun, no fun
With a one track mind if you don't get lucky some time
But still I'm tryin'

I went from San Berdoo to Kalamazoo
Just to get away from you
I searched far and wide, hopin' I was wrong
But baby all the good women are gone

I went from San Berdoo to Kalamazoo
Just to get away from you
I searched far and wide, hopin' I was wrong
But baby all the good women are gone

Lyric :
I got paid, then I was on the road
In a heartbeat, Mama said Mama said
You got a one track mind, but you ain't gonna get it all the time
She wasn't lyin'

[Chorus]
I went from San Berdoo to Kalamazoo
Just to get away from you
I searched far and wide, hopin' I was wrong
But maybe all the good women are gone

[Verse 2]
My last dime, got used up
On gasoline, know what I mean, what I mean
Atlanta, GA by the end of the day
No other way, that's what I say

[Chorus]
I went from San Berdoo to Kalamazoo
Just to get away from you
I searched far and wide, hopin' I was wrong
But maybe all the good women are gone

[Bridge]
And everything I had to say
Wish we'd gone so far away
Well now I
Can't stay

[Verse 3]
Blacktop, I can't stop
For no one, it's no fun, no fun
With a one track mind if you don't get lucky some time
But still I'm tryin'

[Chorus]
I went from San Berdoo to Kalamazoo
Just to get away from you
I searched far and wide, hopin' I was wrong
But maybe all the good women are gone
I went from San Berdoo to Kalamazoo
Just to get away from you
I searched far and wide, hopin' I was wrong
But maybe all the good women are gone

Good song! Who cares if it sounds mainstream or too pop. These guys more capable of writing a good catchy pop song than a lot of artists.

I always find myself driving wayyy too fast when that harmonica solo hits.. such a jam

Gordon Vos

Music should be banned while driving. Causes me to speed like crazy when a good song comes on

Adam

Haha you too eh? 👍

6ix Strings On Fire

That’s a slide Guitar with tremolo effect.

FrostyMC

That's not a harmonica...

I'd never listened to the Black Keys before I heard this song on the radio. I thought it had a nice Stonesy feel to it, so I found out who it was and got to reading about the divided opinions on their old sound vs. their new one. After testing the waters, all I can say is they're a phenomenal band and I like all their sounds.

If this is the "worst song on the album", then I guess I need this album! 

Devin Graves

@The Elephantines wdym? That songs great

Ben Small

This album should have been the first 10 songs only. The first 10 songs are 10/10 songs. This song unfortunately is not good at all, like a 0 out of 10. Makes this album a 9.1/10 for me. So still a superb album
