Intro
F C A Dm C F F Operator, can you help me, help me if you please? Bb F F F# Give me the right area code and the number that I need G C A7 My rider left upon the midnight flyer Dm C F 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 Direct'ry don't have it, Central done forgot it Got to find a number to use Tryin' to check out her number, tryin' to run down her line Operator said that's privileged information and it ain't no business of mine It's floodin' down in Texas, the poles are out in Utah Got to find a private line She could be hangin' round the steel mill workin' in the 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 As long as she's been doin' it right As long as she's been doin' it right
