Driving into Darlington county
Me and Wayne on the fouth of July
Driving into Darlington county
Looking for some work on the county line

/ G - - CG / G - C G / :

We drove down from New York City
Where the girls are pretty
But they just want to know your name
Driving in to Darlington City
Got a union connection with an uncle of Wayne's
We drove eight hundered miles without seeing a cop
We got rock and roll music blasting off the T-top
Singing

Refrain:
Sha la la, sha la la la la
Sha la la la la la la
Sha la la, sha la la la la
Sha la la la la la la

Hey little girl standing on the corner
Today's your lucky day for sure all right
Me and my buddy, we're from New York City
We got $200, we want to rock all night
Girl, you're looking at two big spenders
Why, the world don't know what me and Wayne might do
Our pa's each own one of the World Trade Centers
For a kiss and a smile I'll give mine all to you
Come on baby take a seat on my fender
It's a long night and tell me what else were you gonna do
Just me and you, we could

Refrain

Little girl sitting in the window
Ain't seen my buddy in seven days
County man tells me the same thing
He don't work and he don't get paid
Little girl you're so young and pretty
Well, walk with me and yo can have your way
And we'll leave this Darlington City
For a ride down that Dixie Highway

Driving out of Darlington county
My eyes seen the glory of the coming of the Lord
Driving out of Darlington county
Seen Wayne handcuffed to the bumper of a state trooper's Ford

(Refrain as long as it takes)

    General CommentA song about two friends from The CITY heading out looking for work. Probably about 18 or 19, an uncle has hooked them up with an out of town connection. But like most young men, girls are never far from their minds. They try all their charms and maybe a few white lies to see if they can hook up with these beauties. But being young and stupid (we were all that once), his buddy got arrested. I like to think it was for something reckless (fighting in a bar over the girl he met) rather than something more nefarious (sexual assault).
