Stopped off on a long drive, down from the high country
Spent a long time sitting here, long time counting hot miles
Oh, I'd like a cup of black coffee and a piece of sweet cake
But the girl in the print dress doesn't want my money
She won't take it, she says, oh she says

Oh, she says, "I just know you're a Leo, I can tell you've got a lion's heart"
She went on in this way for a while, like some 60's sister playing a part
Oh, this cup of black coffee gonna do me just fine
Through the dust in the mirror tiles I can see that door
Keep it close behind, oh she says

She says, "Come on over to my house
Make a journey here sometime
You know there's a party going on
A ladder in my stocking you can climb
There's a ladder you can climb"

Oh, she looked so liberated, she was looking fit to start
She got this back to front and sideways, wore her sleeve upon her heart
Oh, just one more coffee's 'bout all I can take
Have to do a truck stop runner now, I'm not man enough to make it
She says, she says

Oh she says, she says, "Come on over to my house
Make a journey here sometime
You know there's a party going on
A ladder in my stocking you can climb
There's a ladder you can climb"

Stopped off on a long drive, down from the high country
Spent a long time sitting here, long time counting hot miles
Oh, I'd like a cup of black coffee and a piece of sweet cake
But the girl in the print dress doesn't want my money
She won't take it, she says, oh she says

She says, "Come on over to my house
Make a journey here sometime
Kick off those tired sports shoes
Got a ladder in my stocking you can climb
Ladder in my stocking you can climb"

Truck stop runner, I'll be a truck stop runner
Truck stop runner, truck stop runner, truck stop runner
