I’ve been riding them flat wheelers, I thought you know’d I’ve been riding them dead enders, way down the road Highball Whistle, pulling out the station, got no plans or a destination I’ve been havin’ some hard traveling, Lord And *that* is the essence of Highball Whistle – no plans, no destination – just music for the sake of loving the music, whiling the time away, and hanging with good friends. We come from very different backgrounds but have formed a sweet chord together.
