Point Me In The Direction Of Albuquerque

written by Tony Romero, performed by The Partridge Family (1970)

The Partridge Family Album is The Partridge Family’s first album. It was released in 1970 and included their first hit, “I Think I Love You,” which went platinum. The album reached #4 in the U.S. on the Billboard album chart and #6 in neighbouring Canada on the RPM 100 national album chart. A few of the songs on the album feature a choral pop sound by people who were the original voices of The Partridge Family before it was discovered that David Cassidy could sing. All tracks from the album were featured in first season episodes of the TV show.

Lyrics

Window walkin’ downtown, feelin’ mighty good
And I noticed from the corner how all alone she stood
Underneath the lamplight, an angel in disguise
Lonely little runaway with teardrops in her eyes

Crazy little rag doll, her hair was wild and tossed
And I put my arm around her, ’cause I knew that she was lost
She didn’t seem to notice that anyone was near
Till suddenly she turned to me and whispered in my ear

Point me in the direction of Albuquerque
I want to go home, and help me get home
Point me in the direction of Albuquerque
I need to get home, need to get home

Showed me a ticket for a Greyhound bus
Her head was lost in time
She didn’t know who or where she was
And anyone that helps me is a real good friend of mine
Real good friend of mine

Point me in the direction of Albuquerque
And help me get home, help me get home

Walked her to the station and kissed away the tears
Knowing I’d remember through all the coming years
Rag doll on that Greyhound who waved with all her might
Weeped against the window as the bus rolled out of sight

Point me in the direction of Albuquerque
I want to go home, and help me get home
Point me in the direction of Albuquerque
I need to get home, need to get home

Point me in the direction of Albuquerque
I want to go home, and help me get home
