TRUCK STOP TESSIE

They call her Truck Stop Tessie

Out I-forty a ways.

Usually you can find her there

Most sunny days.

And even if it’s raining

I am sure if you tried

You still will find Tessie

At the café inside.

 

She calls herself a housewife

But that would be a lie

She doesn’t ever clean the place

She can’t cook a pie.

She only gets dressed up

To go out on the town.

She a big old mess unless

She’s messing around.

 

They call her Truck Stop Tessie

Out I-forty a ways.

Usually you can find her there

Most sunny days.

And even if it’s raining

I am sure if you tried

You still will find Tessie

At the café inside.

 

She’s an old fashioned floozy

In a new-fangled dress.

She makes out she’s a lady

But she’s a bit of a mess.

She dropped out of high school

To ride in boy’s cars.

If they make a round-heel movie

She could be the big star.

 

They call her Truck Stop Tessie

Out I-forty a ways.

Usually you can find her there

Most sunny days.

And even if it’s raining

I am sure if you tried

You still will find Tessie

At the café inside.

 

She was going with another guy

When it all started out.

He wouldn’t take her dancing

So she started to pout.

Then, he slapped her face a bit,

I stepped in to defend.

I probably should slap myself

Make this nightmare end.

 

They call her Truck Stop Tessie

Out I-forty a ways.

Usually you can find her there

Most sunny days.

And even if it’s raining

I am sure if you tried

You still will find Tessie

At the café inside.
