Paroles de Chattanoga city limit sign
Chattanooga city limit sign
i was thumbin' a ride one saturday mornin', out of nashville totin' my sack.
I lent my car to a gal that lived in chattanooga, and she hadn't ever brought it back.
she was drinkin' pretty heavy, when i let her have it, hope she knows it was only a loan.
Ain't no tellin' what i might have told her back at the time,
But that old car was also my home.
about five miles out i was gettin' kinda tired, sweatin' hard and feelin' kinda weak
I woke up with no cigarettes or nothin' to drink and i hadn't had a bite to eat.
my nerves was so quick i couldn't tell where i was shakin' then a set of brakes sang my song.
Some fellow stuck his head out a '51 chevy and hollered "hey man, come on."
i tole 'em i was headin' down to chattanooga they said hop in, we're goin' there too.
And the way they took off in a cloud of smoke i still ain't believin' it was true.
they had their windows down, and i was sittin' in the back
With my tongue still hung in my throat
He was hittin' just about a hundred and ten and he said, "man, what you think of this boat?"
well, there was two semis? a-strugglin' up ahead one tryin' to pass the other.
They had the whole road blocked so he passed 'em on the right
And let me tell you somethin' brother.
i was so nervous my that teeth was clickin' there wasn't no way my head could think.
Then the one that was sittin' on the passenger side
Turned and said, "hey man, you want somethin' to drink?"
i just shook my head 'cause i couldn't talk he said ok and then he said cheers
Them fools was drinkin' whiskey and wine and chasin' it down with beer.
well, i started sweatin' that old sticky sweat and i know i was white as a sheet.
Then one turned the radio on wide open and said, "hey man, check that beat."
by the time we reached the top of mont eagle i thought i heard a rumblin' sound
And then i saw a sign that said 'fallin' rock' and right there i was floorboard bound.
i was rollin' and squirmin' on the old floorboard too weak to sit or stand
And then the driver said "we're doin' a hundred and twenty look here man, no hands!"
i got up enough nerve to raise up and look by now there couldn't be no surprise,
But his hair was blowin' all over my face and dandruff blowed in both eyes.
he never did drive on the right or left he just kept on ridin' that line
I rubbed my eyes and saw the prettiest thing the chattanooga city limit sign.
he slowed down and i said, "mister please! i'd like to get off right here"
He said, "aw, ride on into town with us we?re gonna go down n' pick up some more beer."
i said please once more and he stopped the car and then he handed me my sack
Said they'd look for me on the road later on, (in) case i wanted to catch a ride back.
i got out and sat down by the side of the road feelin' sick and lookin' mighty pale
I don't remember anything much after that but next mornin', i woke up in jail.
i didn't know anybody in my cell, and didn't wanta ask why i was there
But they all kept grinnin' and turnin' their heads and it was more than my head could bear.
so i called the jailer and asked him to tell me
Why i was there, if he'd be so kind
He said, "for stoppin' traffic, while i was huggin' and kissin'
The chattanooga city limit sign."
