10,000 Maniacs Lyrics

The Earth Pressed Flat Lyrics

Detroit, L.A., Boston, San Francisco
First time over the ocean on a plane
A billion stars below me lay, circle slowly JFK
So much there to see inside of a week

They came looking for something new
Try to press it flat inside of a few days

Old Dominion Saturday, Arlington's eternal flame
Sunday tour Niagara Falls in the mist
Monday I'll be heading south New Orleans the Cajun sound
Tuesday's Tupelo, Elvis's home

They came looking for something new
Try to press it flat inside of a few days
What a wonderful stay

On a mule, Grand Canyon ride on Wednesday
I hope to get to Denver in a day
Friday ride to Washington in the glacial mountain sun
Hop a train for Canada to the east

They came looking for something new
Try to press it flat inside of a few days
What a wonderful stay
