Caught a ride into South Dakota
With two girls in a light blue Desoto
One's name was Jane, the other was plain
But they both had racing motors
Next I caught a ride with a gamblers wife
She had a brand new lay down Rambler
She parked inside of town, layed the Rambler down
She said she sure could dig if I'd do her
I'm doing my best to get back to you
Ain't nothing I'd rather do
Look for me someday, gonna be there, honey
With something special just for you
Special just for you
Made a truck stop for toothpicks and water
I got a ride from a fruit pickers daughter
Drove her through the night, while her fruit got ripe
She gave me all I could eat for a quarter
Next, hopped a train with a hobo woman
Said she's from Texas too
The way that she did, what she did
When she did, what she did to me, made me think of you
Yeah, honey, made me think of you
I'm doing my best to get back to you
Ain't nothing I'd rather do
Look for me someday, gonna be there, honey
With something special just for you
Special just for you
Yeah, honey something special just for you

Original has this additional verse
I bet all my money on a race horse baby
One day the set came loose
now I'm standing here in the pooring rain, just trying to get to you.
Just trying to get to you
