Hitchin' A Ride
Vanity Fare Lyrics


A thumb goes up, a car goes by
It's nearly one A.M. and here am I
Hitchin' a ride, hitchin' a ride
Gotta get me home before the morning light

I got no fare to ride a train
I'm nearly drowin' in the pouring rain
Hitchin' a ride, hitchin' a ride
Gotta get me home to my baby's side
Ride, ride, ride, hitchin' a ride
Ride, ride, ride, hitchin' a ride

Long distance call I got today
She sounded lonely so I'm on my way
Hitchin' a ride, hitchin' a ride
Gotta get me home, to keep her satisfied

Ride, ride, ride, hitchin' a ride
Ride, ride, ride, hitchin' a ride

A thumb goes up, a car goes by
Oh, won't somebody stop and help a guy?
Hitchin' a ride, hitchin' a ride
Been away too long from my baby's side

Ride, ride, ride, hitchin' a ride
Ride, ride, ride, hitchin' a ride

Ride, ride
Ride, ride
Ride, ride

Hitchin' a ride, hitchin' a ride
Gotta get me home before the morning light

I'm nearly drowin' in the pouring rain
Hitchin' a ride, hitchin' a ride
Gotta get me home to my baby's side
Ride, ride, ride, hitchin' a ride
Ride, ride, ride, hitchin' a ride
Long distance call I got today
She sounded lonely so I'm on my way
Hitchin' a ride, hitchin' a ride

Ride, ride, ride, hitchin' a ride
Ride, ride, ride, hitchin' a ride

I was a young teenager at 17 years old when this song came out ! I bought the record and played it over and over again . I love this song !! It's now 2022!
I miss those days as there were so many new and exciting bands and singers
Coming out that were and are still so talented!!.It was a good time to be young .

What a groove this song has going! Always loved the bass doing "running eights" where you play eighth notes continuously on the chord root note. The first two fingers of your right hand (righties) alternate quickly with each note, like they are running on the string, hence the name. You can hear it a lot in all forms of rock, but especially in this sub-genre. The piano dude is alternating left and right hand chords and the drummer supports the beat, while the guitar and vocals float above it, making for one heck of a driving groove on this song!!!
