Subject: Lyr Add: 40TH AND PLUM (Wayne Raney)
From: GUEST,Gene
Date: 24 Apr 02 - 11:36 PM

Recorded by: Wayne Raney

1. [1] Now I come from the country
But, [4] boy I'm a-tellin' [1] you
We treat our neighbors better
Than you [2] city-slickers [5] do
One [1] met me on the street one day
And he [4] started pokin' [1] fun
When he [4] asked me on which [1] street I lived
I said [5] 40th & [1] Plum [P]

[nc] He said where?

CHORUS: [nc] Well, I said [1] 40 miles from town
And plumb back in the [5] sticks
Out where we raise gentlemen
Even though you call us [1] hicks
Now you may think I'm ig-nor-ant
But [4] boy we sure have [1] fun
A-[4]-way out in the [1] country
On [5] 40th & [1] Plum

2. Well, I went into a bar one night
To have myself a ball
I order a double zombie
That's the last that I recall
The bartender wanted to take me home
And he asked me where I's from
I looked at him thru bloodshot eyes
Said 40th & Plum

He said where?


3. Well, he threw me out into the street
And boy I blew my top
Somebody said you better quiet-en down
I didn't know he was a cop
He said, You drunk, I'll take you home
Just where did you come from?
I shoved him back, yelled in his face
Said 40th & Plum

He said where?
