Waitin For Some Girl Lyrics

by Ry Cooder

I was robbed I was framed
What ever happens now ain't no fault of mine
I got born I got blamed
Guess I should have read that detour sign
I took off I hid out
Jesus promised me he'd show me a sign
Take your little world and show it up you're askin' me buddy I'm tellin' you friend
You ain't gonna pin that rap on me this time

'Cause I'm waitin' for some girl to pick me up on her way down
She'll know me in the suspect book in the show-up line in the lost and found

I was burned I was fried
There's someone out there waitin' just for me
Dirty blond dirty mind
We're goin' on a tri-state kill-spree
Pedal's down safety's off
Don't you try to take her love from me
I'm warnin' you back out buddy
You ain't gonna steal her love from me this time

'Cause I'm waitin' for some girl to pick me up on her way down
I'm gonna get my money back startin' with the drug-store quack
That jerked me out and hit my back and never shed a tear
That old man's gonna be surprised he'll be cryin' through both his eyes
When I walk up and say the jerk's right here
We're rollin' through your town tonight skid marks on your face all right
When she picks me up on her way down.
