"Operator" as written by and Ronald Charles Mc Kernan....
Operator, can you help me?
Help me if you please
Give me the right area code
And the number that I need
My rider left upon the Midnight Flyer
Singing like a summer breeze

I think she's somewhere down south
Down about Baton Rouge
But I just can't remember no number
A number I can use, directory don't have it
Central done forgot it
Got to find a number to use

Trying to check out her number
Trying to run down her line
Operator said that's privileged information
And it ain't no business of mine
It's flooding down in Texas, the poles are down in Utah
Got to find a private line

She could be hanging round a steel mill
Working in a house of blue light
Riding a getaway bus out of Portland
Talking to the night

I don't know where she's going
I don't care where she's been
Long as she's been doin' it right
Long as she's been doin' it right
