"Sweet Kentucky Ham" as written by and Dave Frishberg....
Its 6 pm
Supper time in Southbend Indiana
And you figure what the hell, you can eat at your motel
So you order up room service on the phone
You watch the local news and eat alone

You gotta take what little pleasure you can find
You got Sweet Kentucky Ham on your mind, On your mind
Nothing but Sweet Kentucky Ham on your mind.



It 10 PM
They're rolling up the sidewalk in Milwaukee

And the only place to eat, just across the street.
So you sit there with you bowl of navy bean.
Turn the pages of your magazine.
And you feel you want to quit while you're behind
'Cus you got Sweet Kentucky Ham on your mind, on your mind
Nothing but Sweet Kentucky Ham on your mind.



You feel like you are forever on the phone
Half past 10, let it ring
Dial again, same damn thing
You're really getting hungrey for some talk
Grab a shower, take a walk.



It's 1 AM
They're serving up last call in Cincinnati

But it's still a night time town, if you know your way around
And dispite youself you find you're wide awake
Staring your scrambled eggs steak
And you must admit your heart is about to break
When you think of what you left behind

And you got Sweet Kentucky Ham on your mind, on your mind
Nothing but Sweet Kentucky Ham on your mind.
