The Earth Pressed Flat Lyrics
(Music by 10,000 Maniacs - Lyrics by Mary Ramsey & John Lombardo)

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 . . .
Try to press it flat inside of a few days
What a wonderful stay,
On a mule Grand Canyon ride on Wednesday,
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.
