A friend of mine dropped out of school
 he didn't tell no one
 he just left one day
Folks said he was acting like a fool
 but he said I was about to go crazy
 and I was already foolish anyway
And what did I have to lose
 what did I have to lose

So he took off to Wisconsin late one night
 Wisconsin where he figured he could blend in
He said nothing felt good under him not the road
 not the tuition money in his pocket
 not really even the car he was driving in
But he said what did he have to lose
 what did he have to lose

CHORUS:
  He said at least I got a car I can drive tonight
  I know it ain't much but it makes me feel alright
  And alright ain't good but alright's alright
  At least I got a car I can drive tonight

College was hard for me and my friends
 we all felt like little kids
 but they said we couldn't act that way
I knew I was supposed to change but change is hard
 and it was easier just to play video games
Besides what did we have to lose
 yeah what did we have to lose

CHORUS:
  Oh at least I got a car I can drive tonight
  I know it ain't much but it makes me feel alright
  And alright ain't good but alright's alright
  At least I got a car I can drive tonight

Man sometimes don't you just wanna sit still
 'cause you can only run so fast or drive so far
Home might feel like a funny idea
 that you never understood
 but you want it more than you want the car

BRIDGE:
   'Cause you're tired of how the seats feel
    And you're tired of the steering wheel
    And you'd buy a new car but
     the last thing you want is something new
     the last thing you want is something new
    Going home feels like the thing you oughta do
   'Cause you can only drive so far

CHORUS:
  Oh man I wish I had a home tonight
  Somewhere I could feel more than alright
 'Cause alright ain't bad but alright's just alright
  And man I wish I had a home, man I wish I had a home
TAG:
   man I wish I had a home tonight
  Oh man I wish I had a home, man I wish I had a home
   man I wish I had a home tonight
