Verse 1
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

Verse 2
I think she's somewhere down south, down about Baton Rouge
But I just can't remember no number, a number I can use
Directry don't have it, Central done forgot it
Got to find a number to use
[ Tab from: ]
Verse 3
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

Verse 4
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
