I found her number clearly written
On that truckstop restroom wall.
Why it took seven beers and half an hour
To get the nerve to call.
And she said, "Honey come on over"
I said, "Tell me where and how."
She said, "How soon can you get here?"
And I said, "How about right now?"

So check the water, check the oil.
Put in 10 bucks worth of gas.
Throw those beer cans in the trash can.
Scrape them skeeters off the glass.
If you got a map of Texas, son,
I'd sure be much obliged,
Cuz I've got a date in Dallas
At a quarter after five.

I stopped for coffee in Kentucky.
I took a pill in Tennessee.
And the thing I hit new Treeport
Was a person or a tree.
Now y'all might think that I'm crazy
But there's one thing you can bet
There ain't no gal half as pretty
As a girl that you ain't met.

So check the water, check the oil
Put in 10 bucks worth of gas.
Throw those beer cans in the trash can.
Scrape them skeeters off the glass.
If you got a map of Texas, son,
I'd sure be much obliged.
Cuz I've got a date in Dallas
At a quarter after five.

I've got the window down along the way
To keep me wide awake
Cuz I got Dolly Parton singin'
Like her heart's about to break.
And someday when we're older,
I'll look at my kids and say,
"Kids, you know I met your mama
In the most peculiar way."

So check the water, check the oil
Put in 10 bucks worth of gas.
Throw those beer cans in the trash.
Scrape them skeeters off the glass.
If you got a map of Texas, son,
I'd sure be much obliged,
Cuz I've got a date in Dallas
At a quarter after five.

Yes... I gotta date in Dallas
At a quarter after five.
