Oh me oh my oh, look at Miss Ohio
She's a-running around with her rag-top down
She says I want to do right but not right now

Gonna drive to Atlanta and live out this fantasy
Running around with the rag-top down
Yeah I want to do right but not right now

Had your arm around her shoulder, a regimental soldier
An' mamma starts pushing that wedding gown
Yeah you want to do right but not right now

Oh me oh my oh, would ya look at Miss Ohio
She's a-runnin' around with the rag-top down
She says I want to do right but not right now

I know all about it, so you don't have to shout it
I'm gonna straighten it out somehow
Yeah I want to do right but not right now

Oh me oh my oh, look at Miss Ohio
She a-runnin' around with her rag-top down
She says I want to do right , but not right now
Oh I want to do right but not right now

    General CommentThis song jumped out at me yesterday while driving in my car. I love how Gillian makes "rag top down" sound so salacious!

    I also suspect Gillian is brainy enough to know St. Augustine's prayer, "Lord, make me pure—but not yet."

    The song leaves me with the impression "Miss Ohio" is being pressured into marriage -- maybe pregnant? -- and is out for one last fling before settling down.
