This song starts off the same as "Anji" (the next track on the album) but
suddenly turns into a hard rock version of "Wednesday Morning 3am" from the
Previous album. The second line of the chorus turned up again years lateras "gliding down the highway" in the song "Slip Slidin' Away".

VERSE 1: A G
I can hear the soft breathing of the girl that I love,
As she lies here beside me asleep with the night.
Her hair in a fine mist floats on my pillow,
Am D/F# E7
Reflecting the glow of the winter moonlight.
CHORUS: C Am
But I've got to creep down the alleyway,
Fly down the highway,
Am C Am F E9
Before they come to catch me I'll be gone.
G Am Am/G F E Am Am/G F E
Somewhere they can't find me.
Oh baby, you don't know what I've done,
I've committed a crime, I've broken the law.
While you were here sleeping and just dreaming of me,
I held up and robbed a liquor store.
Oh my life seems unreal, my crime an illusion,
A scene badly written in which I must play.
And though it puts me uptight to leave you,
I know it's not right to leave you,
When morning is just a few hours away.
