SWEET MELINDA (Steve Gillette / Mark Mackechnie) John Denver - 1979 Chesapeake - 1996 Pulled out of Linden, Texas Two days and nights ago I've been livin' on pills and burgies Till the whites of my eyes don't show Southbound headlights are makin' me blind I'm too damn tired to blink My toes are numb and my brains gone numb And I can just barely think Sweet Melinda, my wife The lonesome moan of this eighteen wheeler Cuts through me like a knife 'Cept for you, sweet Melinda, my wife I been ridin' on empty Most all of my life Two more hours of daylight It's startin' to rain again A sign up ahead says "Welcome to Paradise Population Ten" Well me and this truck and that old white line Stumblin' on and on Like three old drinkin' buddies Comin' home at dawn Sweet Melinda, my wife The lonesome moan of this eighteen wheeler Cuts through me like a knife 'Cept for you, sweet Melinda, my wife I been ridin' on empty Most all of my life (Contributed by Bill Huntley - October 2006)
