JOYRIDE Ray Wylie Hubbard Y' understand I was not lookin' whereby to fall in love I'd come downtown to check out a band at The Continental Club A Mamie Van Doren-lookin' woman come in the door She was untamed youth rebellion and truth and so much more I don't know if she had seen the light, she seemed at home in the dark Her eyes met mine and it was like the time they split the atom apart She could have had any biker in the bar but she come up to me She said "You're done sleeping around, from now on you're with me" Y' understand I did not know if this was my last or my lucky day She said "You wanna go for a joy ride or you wanna stay here and pray" I thought about my choices and I guess I could have said no But it was just a band I'd come to see, so I mumbled "Let's go" She had an old Camaro--naugahyde tuck and roll She said "You can't live down in Texas if you don't have a lot of soul" The stereo was blasting "Mendocino" by Doug Sahm She said "Fasten your seatbelt, you're with me from now on" Understand I was not sleeping at the next day's sunrise Me and this joy ride angel were up all night it's no surprise When we got to her house she said "Go on and take off your shoes. I don't smoke afterwards I prefer to listen to blues" "I know you're an old roots rocker and that's a compliment When she said "Do you want to hear some Slim Harpo," I knew she was heaven sent In her fine presence is where I want to be I'm done sleeping around, from now on she's with me...
