DARLINGTON COUNTY

Album version


Whoa!
Aww!

Driving in to Darlington County, me and Wayne on the Fourth of July
Driving in to Darlington County, looking for some work on the county line
We drove down from New York City where the girls are pretty but they just wanna know your name
Driving in to Darlington City, got a union connection with an uncle of Wayne's
We drove eight hundred miles without seeing a cop
We got rock and roll music blasting off the T-top
Singing

(Sha la la, sha la la la la)
(Sha la la la la la la) hey-hey-hey
(Sha la la, sha la la la la)
(Sha la la la la la la)

Hey little girl standing on the corner, today's your lucky day for sure all right
Me and my buddy we're from New York City, we got two hundred dollars we wanna rock all night
Girl you're looking at two big spenders, and the world don't know what me and Wayne might do
Our pas each own one of the World Trade Centers, for a kiss and a smile I'll give mine all to you, girl
Come on baby take a seat on my fender, it's a long night and tell me what else were you gonna do
Just me and you, we could

(Sha la la, sha la la la la)
(Sha la la la la la la)
(Sha la la, sha la la la la)
(Sha la la la la la la)
Big Man!

Little girl sitting in the window, ain't seen my buddy in seven days
County man tells me the same thing, he don't work and he don't get paid
Little girl you're so young and pretty, walk with me and you can have your way
And we'll leave this Darlington City for a ride down that Dixie Highway

Driving out of Darlington County, I seen the glory of the coming of the Lord
Driving out of Darlington County, seen Wayne handcuffed to the bumper of a state trooper's Ford, whao!

(Sha la la, sha la la la la) Yeah
(Sha la la la la la la) Big Man!
(Sha la la, sha la la la la)
(Sha la la la la la la) Come on
(Sha la la, sha la la la la)
(Sha la la la la la la)
(Sha la la, sha la la la la)
(Sha la la la la la la) Whoaaa
(Sha la la, sha la la la la)
(Sha la la la la la la) Whoa!
(Sha la la, sha la la la la)
(Sha la la la la la la) Whao!
(Sha la la, sha la la la la)
(Sha la la la la la la) Yeah yeah yeah
(Sha la la, sha la la la la)
(Sha la la la la la la)
(Sha la la, sha la la la la) Whoa ooh!
(Sha la la la la la la) Oh oh oh
(Sha la la...)
[Fades out]
