Versuri Emmylou Harris - Amarillo



My baby never was the cheatin' kind 
But it wasn't 'cause the ladies didn't try 
Now everywhere we go they're walkin' 'round him slow 
Givin' him a flutter and a sigh 
Now I got him past that redhead in Atlanta 
Lord, I walked all over that black-eyed Cajun Queen 
But outside of Amarillo, he found his thrill, I'll tell you 
Oh, I lost him to a jukebox and a pinball machine 
 
Oh, Amarillo what you want my baby for? 
Oh, Amarillo now he won't come home no more 
You don't play a trick on me, hooked him in the first degree 
He put another quarter, push Dolly and then Porter 
While he racks up fifty thousand on the pinball machine 
 
If we only hadn't stopped in there for coffee 
If someone hadn't played the window up above 
Oh, he'd still be mine today but he heard those fiddles play 
One look and then I knew this must be love 
Oh, that pinball machine's in the corner 
Well, he saw the lights and he had to hear 'em ring 
And he never was the same after he won his first free game 
Oh, I lost him to a jukebox and pinball machine 
 
Oh, Amarillo what you want my baby for? 
Oh, Amarillo now he won't come home no more 
You don't play a trick on me now you hooked him in the first degree 
He put another quarter, push Dolly and then Porter 
While he racks up fifty thousand on pinball machine 
 
Oh, Amarillo what you want my baby for? 
Oh, Amarillo now he won't come home no more 
You don't played a trick on me, you hooked him in the first degree 
He put another quarter, push Dolly and then Porter 
While he racks up fifty thousand on pinball machine
