Me 'n' Johnny McB
by © Richard J. Budig 1997

Well I was turnin' tricks
T' keep m'self together
In a West Texas motel
By th' name o' Red Leather

'long come a fella
Knockin' at m' door
Sayin' girly I need somethin'
Y'know, what'em cats fight for

I love this business
I says with a smile
I got it, I sell it, I still got it
So c'min fer awhile

Well I 'preciate it darlin'
I'm a trucker, Says he
Got me an 18-wheeler
An' m' name's Johnny McB

Well I gave that trucker
A hell of a ride
Ďtil he says to me
Will ya be m' bride

Oh Johnny, m' Johnny
Y'r m' dream come true
Iíll ride outta town
In Ďat big ol' truck with you

But I gotta warn ya
I'm a booze-lovin' girl
An' I'll break your heart
for a gallon o' Pink Swirl

Well I liked the sauce
And he liked me
So off we go
Me 'n' Johnny McB

An' it wasn't long
After we's on th' road
I needed m' friend
M' bottle o' Old Toad

So we rolled along
Truckin and boozin'
An' ever' so often
We did some shmoozin

But mostly I's in a fog
In the back o' the sleeper
Doin' tricks in my mind
To the drone of the reefer

Well he bitched an' bitched
An' said please O please
Don't do this
To sweet ol' Johnny McB

But I wouldn't listen
No matter what he said
I kept on drinkin'
'till I was nearly dead

So here I sit by the road
Empty bottle on my knee
Lookin' f'r 'nother
Jus' like ol' Johnny McB
