Crash Course in the Blues

Verse 1: To a boy from Indiana fresh off the farm
L.A. looks like heaven with its ever open arms
My mama said to watch yourself like mamas always do
Daddy said those city girls will walk all over you
Verse 2: So I hit the pavement running down on Hollywood and Vine
I got to town by seven and I fell in love by nine
She was a California angel wearing alligator shoes
She had that kinda something that a poor boy can't refuse
Hook: She was incredible; she was a crash course in the blues
Verse 3: Now we're screaming down the freeway In this fancy foreign car
Headed to another party I’ve never seen so many stars
Just when I thought I'd make my move and ask her to be mine
She runs off with somebody new and kisses me goodbye

Hook: She was incredible; she was a crash course in the blues
Bridge: Well she was way too hot to handle for a country boy like me
She's still a Roman candle burning in my memory
Hook: She was incredible; she was a crash course in the blues
Hook: She was incredible; she was a crash course in the blues
