Call up Trudy on the telephone
Tell her I'm hung up in Dallas

Tell her I'm just about to lose my mind
And the girl I left behind
Now Johnny Lee Walker was a card mechanic
Luckiest man in Dallas County

Drove a big long Cadillac limosine
And a hotel suite in New Orleans
Carried a switchblade knife in his left hip pocket
Cut you down in a New York minute

Send her a letter in the mail
And they won't let me outta this jail
If she asks you how I'm fairing
Worried about old Johnny Lee Walker

Sure as hell didn't mean to stay
Had a powerful thirst and six months pay
I met a peroxide blonde in a bar on D-ville
Poured down a bottle and a half of red eye

I set down and won me a 110
Till big Johnny Lee come a strolling in
He ripped off the bar like a 707
I accused him of cheating he reached for a pistol

Heard the bullets whining and sirens wail
Just to put one coon *** boy in jail
So call up Trudy on the telephone
Tell her I'm hung up in Dallas

Tell her I'm just about to lose my mind
And the girl I left behind
