Operator, can you help me Help me if you please Give me the right area code And the number that I need My rider left upon the Midnight Flyer Singin' like a summer breeze
I think she's somewhere down south Down about Baton Rouge But I just a can't remember no number A number I can use Directory don't have it Central done forgot it Gotta find a number to use.
Trying to check out her number Trying to run down her line. Operator said that's priv'ledged information And it ain't no business of mine It's floodin' down in Texas Poles are out in Utah Gotta find a private line
She could be hangin' 'round the steel mill Working in a house of blue lights Riding a getaway bus out of Portland Talking to the night I don't know where she's going I don't care where she's been Long as she's been doin' it right
