I dont know what Im doing here, I could be someplace else
Like in Atlanta drinkin wine, wine, wine
I dont know what Im doing here, I should be someplace else
Like in Kentucky drinkin shine, shine, shine

The dogs are running down in Memphis
And them nags are running in L.A. yeah
Im stuck in Spokane in a motel room
And there aint no way to get away

Willie Nelsons picking out in Austin
And Waylons hanging out in Mexico
Im stuck in Spokane in a motel room
And Cris is making movin picture shows

Hey, I dont know what Im doing here, I could be someplace else
Like in Atlanta drinkin wine, wine, wine
I dont know what Im doing here, I should be someplace else
Like in Kentucky drinkin shine, shine, shine

Well I know theyre dancing in New Orleans
And old Chicagos bright as day
Im stuck in Spokane in a motel room
Lord, I wish I had a Dolly Parton tape

Well Hill and Bare and Billy Joe theyre gambling
And ol TPs frying croppie all night long
Theyre down at Tootsies eating chili
Im stuck in Spokane a writing songs

Hey, I dont know what Im doing here, I could be someplace else
Like in Atlanta drinkin wine, wine, wine
I dont know what Im doing here, I should be someplace else
Like in Kentucky drinkin clear moonshine
