Guy Clark - Baby Took a Limo to Memphis Lyrics

She did not want to drive
She did not want to fly
She did not want to wait
For a bus to come by

She did not want to hassle
She did not want to hurry
She didn't want to know
What is cost, don't worry

[Chorus:]
Baby took a limo to Memphis
Seemed like the thing to do
Baby took a limo to Memphis
She did it 'cause she wanted to

She was not lookin' back
She was lookin' good
She was not in the mood
To be knockin' on wood

She knows what she wants
She knows how to get it
She knows what it takes
Just do it, don't regret it

The shortest distance between two towns
Is ridin' in a limo with the windows down

Don't ask why she's goin'
She might let you know
Don't ask when she's comin' back
Cause she don't know

Don't let her fool you
She's nobody's fool
She knows what's tacky
She knows what's cool
