Lyrics and Chords

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 the midnight flyer
Singin' like a summer breeze

/ G - / / C - / G - / A D / EmD G /

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

Try'n' to check out her number
Try'n' to run down her line
Operator said that's priv'leged information
And it ain't no business of mine
It's floodin' down in Texas, poles 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 out of 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
