Lean back
Sit back on the porch swing
Pour yourself a glass of lemonade
Make sure the dog's in
He's been scratchin' a lot lately
Like there's an epidemic of fleas
I ain't never seen nothin' like it
Summer of '75
All of these bugs came in from out of state
Messed with everybody
Especially the dog
Ain't never been the same
Just lay back now

First time I ever heard this song
First time I went to
I don't remember how old I was
My first time out east
And I went to theis club called, "Tramps"

Late at night, I got to see Lightnin' Hopkins sing
I was closer to him
Than I was to my dad at the time
He sang
A week later, he died
I think that was the last show he ever played
This is my favorite one that he done
It's called the "Airplane Blues"
Goes like this

I got a woman
She's always out of town
I got a woman
She's always out of town
I'm gonna buy me an airplane
I'm gonna fly that woman down

That woman that left me
She ain't never satisfied
That woman that left me
She ain't never satisfied
She's gonna ride with me in the airplane
Next time I take her for a ride

Next time we fly
I'm gonna take her for a trip
Down across the world
Next time we fly
Gonna take her for a trip down across the world
She's gonna take off
Just like that old flying squirrel

I got a woman
She's always out of town
She's always out of town
I'm buying an airplane
I'm flying that woman down

Mmm
Mmm
Mmm
Mmm
Mmm
Mmm
