I spent last night in the arms of a
girl in Louisiana
And though I'm out on the highway
my thoughts are still with her
Such a strange combination of a
woman and a child
Such a strange situation stoppin'
every hundred miles callin' Baton Rouge
(then play D for the fiddle part)
D (play D all the way through)
Operator, won't you put on through?
I gotta send my love down to Baton Rouge
Hurry up, won't you put her on the line?
I gotta talk to the girl just one more time.
Hello, Samantha dear,
I hope you're feelin fine
And it won't be long until
I'm with you all the time, but until
then I'll spend my money up
right down to my last dime,
call-in Baton Rouge
(then play D again over fiddle part)
(then back to chorus: "Operator..."
Call-in Baton Rouge
