"Calling Baton Rouge" lyrics - DOUG KERSHAW

"Calling Baton Rouge"

I spent last night in the arms of a girl in Louisiana
And though I'm out on the highway my thoughts are still with her
Such a strange combination of a woman and a child
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

Operator get me 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

Hello Samantha dear, I hope you're feelin' fine
And it won't be long until I'm with you all the time
But until then I'll spend my money up
Right down to my last dime
Callin' Baton Rouge
