"Alexis"
(Tommy Bolin & Jeff Cook)

Alexis thank you for a pleasant Southern day
Spent on the levy throwin' pennies in the bay
And talkin' of the rich folks
On the big boats that pass that way
You were just a young girl
I just could not stay

Alexis I can't remember how we met back then
Was on my way to Atlanta, now I'm on that road again
Not really poor - had money, just not to spend
You were just a young girl, and I was in need of a friend

Alexis you always used to talk about
Leavin' your home town - headin' on South
Maybe down to New Orleans
And you wanted me to help you out
But you were just a young girl
And I was just a hobo that had my doubts

Alexis I did not want to - want to leave you there
Sometimes this life we lead is so unfair
I wanted to take you with me
But I did not dare
You were just a young girl and I could not pay your fare

Alexis you always used to talk about
Leavin' your home town - headin' on South
Maybe down to New Orleans
And you wanted me to help you out
But you were just a young girl
And I was just a hobo that had my doubts
Had my doubts Had my doubts. Had my doubts
