"Don't Think About Her When You're Trying to Drive" as written by John Hiatt, Jim Keltner, Nicholas Orain Lowe and Ryland Peter Cooder....
She don't know who you're missin'
Drivin' down that lonesome road tonight
Looking for one starlight glowing

Or her face shining in the dash light
Driving out of Natchez
You drive her back and forth across your mind
Tires squeal as the wheels spin faster
Love's gone for good this time

[Chorus]
Don't think about her
Move on, you're lucky just to be alive
You'll live without her
Just don't you think about her
When you're trying to drive

A heart in your condition
Shouldn't be out on that road tonight
Bad clutch and your load keeps shifting
Hold on, Buddy you'll be alright
You'll wake tomorrow morning
Probably be in Memphis or somewhere
They won't know one thing about her
Those lips, those eyes, that hair

[Chorus]

You make that phone call
You'll hear her saying
"Hello, who's there, is it somebody playing?"
You won't be able to utter a word
She's better off not knowing
Where it is you're going

[Chorus: x2]

Don't you think about her
Trying to drive
