Drifters Wife - J.J.Cale

    Had me a woman down in Tennessee
    Boy she used to love me
    Free fever got me and I had to go
    I never seen that woman no more
    New York City is a place I been
    I was there one time with a travellin' band
    Young girl there wanted me to stay
    I think she wanted me to pay
    Roll it out, roll it in
    Here we go down the road again
    Drifters life is a drifters wife
    Don't say I didn't tell you so
    Travellin' man now he don't know
    Only what he hears on the radio
    Politics and money don't bother him
    Only good lookin' women and a bottle of gin
    Portland, Oregon, to the Mexican line
    Boy let me tell you the women are fine
    If you don't hang around there very long
    They'll never ever know you're gone
