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
Singing like a summer breeze

I think she's somewhere down south
Down about Baton Rouge
But I just can't remember no number
A number I can use

Directory don't have it
Central done forgot it
Got to find a number to use

Trying to check out her number
Trying to run down her line
Operator says that's privileged information
And it ain't no business of mine

It's flooding down in Texas
The poles are down in Utah
Got to find a private line

Could be hanging 'round a steel mill
Working in a house of blue light
Riding a getaway bus out of Portland
And talking to the night

Don't care where she's going
I don't care where she's been
As long as she's been doin' it right

As long as she's been doin' it right
