Jim's Cafe

Lyrics & Music by Bruce Blackman

I’m driving fast I’m coming home to see you, baby

Getting’ dizzy from those highway lines

I shoulda' known I couldn't live without you

Counting down miles by the highway signs



I’ll be cruisin’ in my ’64 Chevy

Burning tires coming your way

Meet me down on the corner by the leve

Down around Jim’s café


I need a rocket gotta’ get it going faster

Mash that gas pedal down to the floor

I can’t wait to wrap my arms around you, girl

I’m double down the speed limit on this road


(Repeat Chorus)



I left Baton Rouge last night and didn’t even stop at Stuckey’s

I crossed that Miss-Sippi bridge pushing a hundred and five

I taped your picture on the dashboard like an angel smiling back at me


Wearing that yellow blouse you’re so beautiful even an old blind man could see

All I do is think about missing you

Drove all night trying to outrun the sun

Praying like a preacher that you’ll be there to meet me

I tried not to love you but it can’t be done


(Repeat Chorus)



Driving by in my ’64 Chevey

Right in front of Jim’s Cafe

There you are on the corner by the levee

This is my lucky day – Hallelujah
