Oh, she give me moonshine whiskey
Oh, she give me southern love
Deep in the heart of Texas
There beneath the stars above
Oh, she give me Southern Comfort
Oh, she give me moonshine love
Deep in the heart of Texas
There beneath the stars above

Here I am riding on a train
Just about thunderballs down the line
Just can't wait any longer
See that little darling of mine
See that little darling of mine

She's my Texas sweetheart
Part from Arkansas
They were dancing
Across the floor
And a band was playing
People were swayin', to and fro
Streamline promenade baby
Streamline promenade

And I said, "Wait a minute,
Wait a minute, wait a minute
I'm gonna take a plane
Come with me to tonight"

Gonna put on my hot pants
And promenade, promenade down funky Broadway
'Til the cows come home
La la la da

Oh streamline promenade
Promenade streamline
Streamline promenade
Promenade streamline
Think I'm gonna promenade all night

Oh, she give me moonshine whiskey
Oh, she give me southern love
Deep in the heart of Texas
There beneath the stars above
Oh, she give me Southern Comfort
Oh, she give me moonshine love
Deep in the heart of Texas
There beneath the stars above

Listen, here we are
Thinking about time
When I resist here and now
And I just want to lay my feet
On a river bed instead
Can't wait any longer
For the sign
I want to get down some solid time, in the water
Watch the fish in the water
Bubbles, watch the bubbles come up in the water
Promenade streamline in the water
Streamline promenade, get funky
Promenade streamline, funky as you want to be

La da da
La da da
Streamline promenade, oh baby
Well, I feel alright tonight
Streamline promenade

Oh, she give me moonshine whiskey
Oh, she give me southern love
Oh, she give me moonshine whiskey
Oh, she give me southern love

She give me southern love
Southern love
Southern love
Child, she give me southern love
She give me southern love
Southern love
Southern love...

Oh she gave me moonshine whiskey
