The last time I saw her, she was waving me goodbye
She swore no other boy would take my place
I took a Mississippi Queen through New Orleans and down the Bayou
I hoped to find my destiny, my fortune and my face.

Please tell her that I said hello
Explain to her I didn't want to go
But a message from her daddy said : 'He's gonna see me dead'
And if I can get out now, she'll never know
She'll never know, never know.

I stayed around, I played around with all those Southern belles
But they took away my money and my pride
I had no place to go and the rest you know darn well
Living out the gutter ain't so easy to describe.

But I still had my guitar, so I joined a dirty band
Working in a smoky downtown bar
When comes along this big wheel with a contract in his hand
Said : 'Put your mark along here boy, I'm gonna make you a rock'n'roll star'.

Please tell her that I said hello
Explain to her I didn't want to go
But a message from her daddy said : 'He's gonna see me dead'
And if I can get out now, she'll never know
Never know, never know.

Well the years have come and gone and I was passing through to find
That my home town was still the same to see
Well, the memory I had of her had crumbled from my mind
I really didn't think she'd still be waiting here for me.

Please tell her that I said hello
Explain to her I didn't want to go
But a message from her daddy said : 'He's gonna see me dead'
And if I can get out now, she'll never know
She'll never know, never know.

Mmm ...

If I can get out now, she'll never know
Never know, never know
Never know, never know
Never know.
