Well the old Kentucky skyline
Sinks low into the night time
Grew up on this bluegrass
went singing in the hills

Well I'm leaving in the morning
I got an itching for that black-top
got my things together now
Good-bye

And I'm looking for a lady
who wants to ride shotgun
looking for a lady
willing to hear my lies
Joanne understand
these words that I'm sayin
Joanne understand
you gotta open up your eyes

And I recall the old Missouri mansion
where everyone was dancin
that banjo player really got me high!

Well I never learned to please her,
just learned I didn't need her
Missouri ain't no place for me to die

And I'm looking for a lady
who wants to ride shotgun
looking for a lady
willing to hear my lies
Joanne understand
these words that I'm sayin
Joanne understand
you gotta open up your eyes

I'm back in Mississippi
Wondring if she'll miss me
Her name was Lilyanna Jefferson

I can see it all real clearly
although I was getting weary
Playing cards each night
and I never won

And I'm looking for a lady
who wants to ride shotgun
looking for a lady
willing to hear my lies
Joanne understand
these words that I'm sayin
Joanne understand
you gotta open up your eyes

And I'm looking for a lady
who wants to ride shotgun
looking for a lady
Willing to hear my lies
Joanne understand
these words that I'm sayin
Joanne understand
you gotta open up your eyes
