BETTY JEAN

Black Mellon Road on dark mellow night
Two cars pullin' up ahead on my right
Goin' up the highway gonna see my Betty Jean
She got eyes like a jack rabbit, staring dead in my high beams

Well over in the woods in a hail door light
Two Red Hills boys in a bare-knuckle fight
Stretched out on the hood of my GTO
She's filin' her nails shoutin', "Go, Bobby, go!"

Betty Jean, Betty Jean, Betty Jean, Betty Jean
Betty Jean, Betty Jean honey you're cute but you sure are mean
Ooh, Betty Jean

Well she jumped in that car
We started drivin' around
She turned that radio dial
Threw her head back 'n' sound
Goin' up the highway, she was givin' me it
She put her hand on my leg
I drove us in a drainage ditch

Betty Jean, Betty Jean, Betty Jean, Betty Jean
Betty Jean, Betty Jean honey you're cute but you sure are mean
Ooh, Betty Jean

Next thing I knew, I was runnin' through the crowd
I swore her my love forever, she was laughin' out loud
We were married in the Spring out on 531
Had 15 kids and I hate every single one

Betty Jean, Betty Jean, Betty Jean, Betty Jean
Betty Jean, Betty Jean honey you're cute but you sure are mean
Ooh, Betty Jean
