lyrics

P&L's MIDWAY

I come from Houston way down south
Raised in a honky-tonk with a po-boy in my mouth
Momma and Daddy let us boys run free
Them quarters for the jukebox made a junkie out of me

It was “Stars on The Water” and “On The Road Again”
And dancing with your Momma to “Hello Darlin’”

Grandma Loretta drove a gold Pontiac
Her friend had a coon dick tucked in his cowboy hat
There were prison guards and convicts, my brother and me
They gave away bunnies on Easter Sunday

It was “Stars on The Water” and “On The Road Again”
And dancing with your Momma to “Hello Darlin’”

Grandma Loretta lives up in Heaven now
Probably drinkin’ beer and dancin’ to them honky-tonk sounds
Shufflin’ through the saw-dust just like we used to do
Down at P&L’s Midway back in 1982

It was “Stars on The Water” and “On The Road Again”
And dancing with your Momma to “Hello Darlin’”
