"Red Shirt" as written by and Katherine Kathy Kallick....
I was workin' overtime in the town of Lorraine
Right between Odessa and Abeline
Feelin' like somethin' that the cat dragged in
The whole place looked a little worse than me

I left work and walked straight through town
With the wind at my back and the sun goin' down
I got home and turned right around
My TV chair was no place for me

CHORUS:

There was a two-bit moon in a ten-cent sky
On a west Texas night with the clouds rollin' by
All lit up just like the fourth of July
I'll feel a little better as the hours go by


I left home with the screen door slammin'
And I went to a club where the band was jammin'
You know what they say about feast or famine
They were all linin' up just to dance with me

I had my red shirt on, I was hot I can tell ya
I was just warmin' up at a quarter to eleven
Thought I might have died and gone to heaven
How did this happen to a girl like me

CHORUS

I'm gonna take that moon like a big yellow quarter
Gonna put it in the juke box and place my order
Dance 'til my feet hurt and kick up my heels
Sing y'all a song 'bout the way that it feels

CHORUS
