Текст песни Jerry Reed - Tupelo Mississippi Flash

I'm gonna tell you a story that's all about This job I had one time As a talent scout I had a hard day at the office And the boss wasn't in town The day this hired legged guitar picker Just happened to come around Well, he walks into my office with a great big grin And folks that's where my story really begins He said, "Son my name is Boregard Rippy I come to you from Tupelo Mississippi I write songs and I sing like a bird I play licks on my guitar like you ain't never heard" "But I'm down on my luck, things are just a little slack I gotta quarter in my pocket And a shirt on my back But you buy me some supper, Give me a place I can sleep" He said, "I'll sing you some songs That'll knock your head To creak, I got talent boy" Said, "Back home they call me The Tupelo Mississippi Flash" Well, I knew I was in a room With some kind of a nut When he pulled out that pack of used cigarette butts So that's when I told him, 'We can't use you today' So I handed the boy a dollar and I sent him on his way Well, the boss got back and we both had a laugh When I told him 'bout The Tupelo Mississippi Flash And pretty soon I had the story circlin' around About this Mississippi nut That we had in our town I said, 'Watch him everybody, the boy's squirrely He walks around callin' himself The Tupelo Mississippi Flash' Well, and it happened one day While I was drivin' to my home I just happened to have my car radio on When I heard the jockey Ravin' about a brand new smash By a kid called The Tupelo Mississippi Flash Well, I almost wrecked my automobile I went through a red light, I hit the traffic cop, why Well, my story's got an ending And it's short and sweet The boss man he fired me and left me out in the street But I got a new job now And I'm learnin' real fast I'm drivin' the bus for The Tupelo Mississippi Flash And his Cadillac, I'm driving that for him too And that yacht he's got, and his aeroplane Well, chauffeur, so good, I always say Tupelo Mississippi, Who ever heard of it, why I'll kill the boy Help him somebody
