Calling Baton Rouge

D    Bm    A   

I spent last night in the arms of a girl in Louisiana

G    D    A    D    G    A

And though I’m out on the highway my thoughts are still with her

D    Bm    A   

Such a strange combination of a woman and a child

G    D    A    D    G    A

Such a strange situation stoppin’every hundred miles callin’ Baton Rouge


A replay of last night’s events Roll through my mind

Except a scene or two Erased by sweet red wine

And I see a truck stop sign ahead So I change lanes

I need a cup of coffee And a couple dollars change

Callin’ Baton Rouge

D

Operator, won’t you put on through?

I gotta send my love down to Baton Rouge

Hurry up, won’t you put her on the line?

I gotta talk to the girl just one more time.
