Mississippi Queen, If you know what I mean
Mississippi Queen, She taught me everything
Way down around Vicksburg, Around Louisiana way
Lived a cajun lady, Aboard the Mississippi Queen
You know she was a dancer
She moved better on wine

While the rest of them dudes were'a gettin' their kicks,
Buddy, beg your pardon, I was getting mine!

Mississippi Queen, If you know what I mean
Mississippi Queen, She taught me everything
This lady she asked me, If I would be her man
You know that I told her, I'd do what I can
To keep her looking pretty
Buy her dresses that shine

While the rest of them dudes were making their bread
Buddy, beg your pardon, I was losing mine!
And leave it on!

Hey-Hey Bayou Lena
Ain't she a beautiful girl
C'mon take it up to New Orleans
And drink a bottle of cheap red wine.

Well, she walked into the room wearing a gator skin suit
Barfly's slack jaws droppin' to the floor
With the grease on her fingers and lipstick on her toes
When the lights turned red, she began to take it off.

She dances in the corner making minimum wage.

Back home with seven hunger mouths to feed

In a bar in Toledo,across from the depot,
On a barstool she took off her ring.
I thought I'd get closer
So I walked on over.
I sat down and asked her her name.
When the drinks finally hit her,
She said,"I'm no quitter,
But I finally quit living on dreams.
I'm hungry for laughter,
Here ever after
I'm after whatever the other life brings."

In the mirror I saw him,
And I closely watched him.
I thought how he looked out of place.
He came to the woman
Who sat there beside me.
He had a strange look on his face.
The big hands were calloused,
He looked like a mountain,
For a minute I thought I was dead.
But he started shaking,
His big heart was breaking,
He turned to the woman and said,

"You picked a fine time to leave me,Lucille
With four hungry children and a crop in the field.
I've had some bad times,
Lived through some sad times,
This time the hurtin' won't heal.
You picked a fine time to leave me,Lucille.
And leave it on!

Well I guess I have been drinking and I probably shouldn't be Calling you late at night just to listen to your voice
But I'm missing you so badly and my days have gone by
Sadly since that night, so I went out with the boys.
I know I should be stronger but I wish that what we had had Lasted longer, I guess that was your choice
So I call you up to sort it out, sorry I don't mean to shout But a crowded bar room makes a lot of noise

Chorus:
From the deepest canyons, to the highest mountains
And all points in between.
Sandstone nights and birthday fights, I said something didn't Feel quite right
When I close my eyes at night, It's your face that I see
"What I like best about music is when time goes away."

I'm sitting in this place again
The same old place I used to sit when young
Behind the bar the same old face
That used to serve the root beer for a song
The tapestry upon the wall
Has faded since the last time I was here
The ceiling a shade darker
It's been painted with cigarettes smoked through the years
But still there's something different
As I gazed into my whiskyglass 't was when I knew
I looked around and close my eyes
And guess that something different must be you.

The juke box in the corner plays the same old song
A song of long
Your photograph hangs by the door
Reminding me of friends I used to know
I guess those were the good old days
There's really nothing like those good old days
A simple kiss then we shook hands
We said good-bye and went our different ways
I've been away so long now
And when I look back it's more than I can bear
I buy another drink and as I place it to my lips
I shed a tear.

I'm sitting in this place again
The same old place I used to sit before
Behind the bar the same old face
That won't serve me no whisky anymore
But still there's something different
As a gazed into my whiskyglass 't was then I knew
I looked around and close my eyes
I guess that something different must be you
I looked around and close my eyes
I guess that something different must be you.
And leave it on!

It's been ten long years since I left my home
In the hollow where I was born
Where the cool fall nights make the woods smell right
And the fox hunter blows him horn

I fell in love with a girl from the town
I thought that she would be true
I ran away to Charlottesville
And worked in a sawmill or two

What have they done to the old home place?
Why did they tear it down?
And why did I leave the plow in the field
And look for a job in the town?

A young cowboy named Billy Joe grew restless on the farm
A boy filled with wonderlust who really meant no harm
He changed his clothes and shined his boots
And combed his dark hair down
And his mother cried as he walked out

Don't take your guns to town son
Leave your guns at home Bill
Don't take your guns to town

He laughed and kissed his mom
And said your Billy Joe's a man
I can shoot as quick and straight as anybody can
But I wouldn't shoot without a cause
I'd gun nobody down
But she cried again as he rode away
And leave it on!

In this town there lived an outlaw by the name of Texas Red
Many men had tried to take him and that many men were dead
He was vicious and a killer though a youth of twenty four
And the notches on his pistol numbered one an nineteen more
One and nineteen more

Down in the scrub oak timber of the Southeast Texas Gulf
There used to ride a brakeman and a brakeman double tough
He worked the town of Kilgore and Longview nine miles down
Us trav'lers called him East Texas Red the meanest bull around.

I rode by night and by broad daylight in wind and snow and sun
I always seen little East Texas Red sporting his smooth running gun
The tale got switched down the stems and main and everybody said
The meanest man on the shiny rails was little East Texas Red.

Out in the West Texas town of El Paso
I fell in love with a Mexican girl.
Nighttime would find me in Rose's Cantina,
Music would play and Felina would whirl.
Black as the night were the eyes of Felina,
Wicked and evil while casting a spell.
My love was strong for this Mexican maiden,
I was in love, but in vain I could tell.
