lyrics

Newspapers fly,
Bye bye bye,
By the old bus stations the
Young children cry,

Her name was Rita East,
And though she paid the lease,
It was time for her to leave for Baltimore

8 o'clock comes way too soon,
Time to stop and think of you,
Minutes start to slip away,
Soon she will be on her
way,

Highway calls her name,
No more shame,
The clouds fog up the window panes

Leaving this town behind,
Rumors and lies,
Rita's life will begin again
in Baltimore

8 o'clock comes way too soon,
Time to stop and think of you,
Minutes start to slip away,
Soon she will be on her way,

Pack your bags, it is done,
She goes with the setting sun,
Nighttime falls and there is rain,
Now we have to bear the
pain.

8 o'clock comes way too soon,
Time to stop and think of you,
Minutes start to slip away,
Soon she will be on her way,

Pack your bags, it is done,
She goes with the setting sun,
Nighttime falls and there is rain,
Now we have to bear the
pain.
