From the recording Milwaukee Road

Lyrics

A clothespin, and a joker on the fork of a wheel
Do you know how that made me feel
Riding around on that Schwinn Typhoon .
That card on the spokes made my engine zoom

Riding all through town
You could hear us coming around
Just listen for that sound
Of the cards against the spokes of our Wheels

My Brother got a new stingray
When banana seats were all the rage .
He had a hard time keeping up
Those 20 in wheels just not enough

Riding all through town
You could hear us coming around
Just listen for that sound
Of the cards against the spokes of our Wheels

Flying down that hill
I could do it with no hands , such a thrill
No helmets for our Heads
It amazing that we aren’t all dead

Riding all through town
You could hear us coming around
Just listen for that sound
Of the cards against the spokes of our Wheels

Traded that bike on a new 10 speed
27 in orange continental for me
Would ride that bike all around Michigan
With a tent on my back with my best friend

We come riding into towns
You couldn’t hear us coming around
Silent was the sound
No more cards against the spokes of our Wheels

Have kids now and a new set of training wheels
And clothespin, and a joker so they’ll know how this feel
Riding all through town
You could hear us coming around
Just listen for that sound
Of the cards against the spokes of our Wheels

cards against the spokes of our wheels
cards against the spokes of our wheels
