    It was Della and the Dealer and a dog named Jake
    And a cat named Kalamazoo.
    Left the city in a pick up truck,
    Gonna make some dreams come true.
    Yea,they rolled out west where the wild sun sets

    Lyrics
    See the rain comin' down and the roof won't hold 'er
    Lost my job and I feel a little older
    Car won't run and our love's grown colder
    But maybe things'll get a little better, in the mornin'
    Maybe things'll get a little better.
