Lyrics

Wendy’s Comin’ Into Town Tonight

 

She’s on a midnight run…gonna see someone

With thirteen hours to go

Got the drop top down and the music up loud

Rockin’ with the radio

Mama’s all a-mess…said she tried to do her best

But she slipped away somehow

Daddy’s freakin’ out…”Oh, what’s it all about?

Where’s she run off to now?”

 

Call the cops! Call the lawyers!

Wendy’s comin’ into town tonight

Tearin’ down the lanes like a burnin’ flame

And drivin’ all through the night

They put out a tri-state A.P.B.

Just in case they get her in their sights

She’s headin’ eastbound with the hammer down

Wendy’s comin’ into town tonight

 

Sister’s got me on the phone…says she’s got to call home

“Let her know we’re all worried sick

She didn’t leave a note, and she’s damn near broke

So we better catch up with her quick”

Husband made the call…said “She’s gone AWOL!

No blip on the radar screen”

Threw her ring in the river…Lord, please forgive her

She said I made her weak in the knees

 

Call the cops! Call the lawyers!

Wendy’s comin’ into town tonight

Tearin’ down the lanes like a burnin’ flame

And drivin’ all through the night

They put out a tri-state A.P.B.

Just in case they get her in their sights

She’s headin’ eastbound with the hammer down

Wendy’s comin’ into town tonight

 

When she hit the state line, she dropped a quarter and a dime

Told `em she’s had as much as she could stand

Said “Don’t you dare cry `cause I’m waving bye-bye!

So long, y’all…I’m off to the promised land!”

 

Call the cops! Call the lawyers!

Wendy’s comin’ into town tonight

Tearin’ down the lanes like a burnin’ flame

And drivin’ all through the night

They put out a tri-state A.P.B.

Just in case they get her in their sights

She’s headin’ eastbound with the hammer down

Wendy’s comin’ into town tonight

 

She’s headin’ eastbound with the hammer down

Wendy’s comin’ into town tonight
