This song is by Grateful Dead and appears on the album American Beauty (1970).

Operator can you help me
Help me if you please
Give me the right area code and the number
That I need
My rider left upon a midnight flyer
Singin' like a summer breeze

I think she's somewhere down south
Down about Baton Rouge
But I just can't remember no number
A number I can use
Directory don't have it
Central done forgot it
Got to find a number to use

Tryin' to check out a number
Tryin' to run down a line
Operator said that's privileged information
And it ain't no business of mine
It's flooding down in Texas, the polls are out in Utah
Got to find a private line

She could be hangin' round a steel mill
Workin' in a house of blue lights
Ridin' a getaway bus outta Portland, talkin' to the night
I don't know where she's goin'
I don't care where she's been
Long as she's been doin' it right

Long as she's been doin' it right
