​Baton Rouge Or Frisco

This song is by Gene Pitney and appears on the album Pitney Sings Bacharach (1968).

Baton Rouge or Frisco, it's always the same
Baton Rouge or Frisco, I can't forget her name

In the dead of night, on my way out of town
And by morning light, I was covering ground
Every thought of her was gone I was just moving on
'Til I read next day Marie and a note were found
When it was much to late to turn around

Baton Rouge or Frisco, it's always the same
Baton Rouge or Frisco, I can't forget her name

Just a passing love that was all I could give
Be she understood the way I live
All I wanted from Marie was a sweet memory
When her lips reached out and touched the man in me
And now that memory won't let me be

Baton Rouge or Frisco, it's always the same
Baton Rouge or Frisco, I can't forget her name
