"Trunk" as written by and Nathan/followill Followill....
Well I got
What she wants
Ah her nose
A tied knot
I got one mile to go
On down the road
On down the road

Well she got
What I want
And she knows
What I'm not
And I got one mile to go
On down the road
On down the road

She sang
Whoo
Whoo
Whoo
Whoo
Whoo
Whoo
Whoo

She got
What I want
And she knows
What I'm not
And I got one mile to go
On down the road
On down the road

She sang
Whoo
Whoo
Whoo
Whoo

Whoo
Whoo
Whoo
Whoo
Whoo
Whoo
Whoo
Whoo
Whoo
Whoo

    General CommentFirst of all, those lyrics are fucked. Anyway, I agree he's a drug dealer and she an addict. He's got "what she wants" in the trunk. He's a mile down the road from her and whatever she's about to consume is going up through her nose (cocaine...) to loosen the "tight knot". Once she's feeling the high she sings "Wooooo..."

    Or maybe she's tied up in the trunk and about to get boned. It's good either way.

    General CommentC'mon no posts! The reverb guitar is out of this world. One of favorites on the album definately.

    The opening verse sounds like he's a pusher. He gots the drugs (coke and heroin). And there just cruising down the road. Drugs in the trunk. Whoooooo

    General CommentIt has a Hollies's "Long Cool Woman In A Black Dress" feel to it, but much creepier and slowed. Very rocking.

    General CommentI think the 'Woooooooo' bit refers to the women (she) maybe taking some of this guys drugs and getting spaced out.

    General CommentI think the line should be "ah her nose". but I agree with the OP. I definitely do think the song is about a drug dealer and addict.

    and "Whooooo" is probably the rush she gets from the drugs.

    but I don't know what he means by "she knows what I'm not"
