Ruthie Collins – Me and Emmylou Lyrics

SHARE

Packed the hatchback of this yellow Toyota,
filled it up with gas and what’s left of my dreams
Hoping Sunday morning that I make California
come hell or high water, whatever that means
Ooh it’s just me and EmmyLou
a thousand miles of blacktop and a big blue sky
She thinks that she’s the queen of some Mexican dessert
her head hanging out the window as the trucks roll by
Stopped for the night in Southern Colorado
hoping there’s enough tequila and limes until you arrive
Well let me try to find some drunk dime store cowboy
Guess her taste in men, is still better than mine
Oooh it’s just me and Emmylou,
Drive thru coffee that a part of me likes
Well she thinks that she’s the queen
of some Mexican dessert
her head hanging out the window as the trucks roll by
Yeah…
Well I can just see Emmy, trying to dig a hole to China
while i’m drinking margharitas on Venice Beach
I wonder if you miss me, back there in Georgia
Well if you ever change your mind, you know where I’ll be
Ooh it’s just me and EmmyLou
a thousand miles of blacktop and room enough to fly
She still thinks she’s the queen of some Mexican dessert
her head hanging out the window as the trucks roll by
And it sure feels like we’re gonna be alright
My hand is out the sunroof, wavin’ goodbye
oooh it’s just me and EmmyLou, yeah
oooooh, it’s just me and EmmyLou, her head hanging
out the window and I’m driving all night…
