We barely knew each other but that didn’t stop the fall
From the first time I saw her ‘til the last time we talked
She was a beauty barely 21
Now I’m out on the highway wonderin’ what I done

I drove a thousand miles just to get away from her
Although I don’t know what I’m gettin’ away fer

By the time I get to Memphis
The thought of her will be all but gone
By the time I get to Memphis
My thoughts’ll turn to San Antone

Now I’m at the Florabama rememberin’ a girl from Utah
When I asked her was she from heaven she said no Arkansas
Now somethin’ happens to a man when he’s in a bar and two states at the same time
And I’m here with Oysters McClellan tryin’ to think of a suitable rhyme

I drove all night and day just to see how far I’d get
Now I’m in Louisiana feelin’ no regret

Well I begged you baby for an answer
When I knocked upon your door
Said baby baby please
Don’t leave me anymore

She was everything I ever dreamed of
She was my life my light my one true love
Now the car’s gassed and loaded and I’m out on I-10
Wonderin’ if I’ll ever ever see her again

I drove all god damn night just to find myself closer to it
Now I’m in Austin Texas and I’m feelin’ like shit

But by the time I get to Kansas
The thought of her will be all but gone
By the time I get to Kansas
My thoughts’ll turn to comin’ home

I’m comin’ home
