Lyrics

Chorus
Papa come quick
Jodi’s gone to the city
What’re we gonna do
Now that Jodi’s gone
She left a note on the TV
Papa it’s a pity
What’re we gonna do
Now that Jodi’s gone

Verse 1
Mama’s been cryin In the kitchen since morning
She cried right through As the World Turns
I seen it myself and papa it’s a pity
What’re we gonna do now that Jodi’s gone

Chorus
Gas up the old Ford
Get out the roadmap
They gotta head start
About a half a day
Load up the shotgun
Put it in the gun rack
Jodi’s with Chico
Down in east LA

Verse 2
It must’ve been a wild-eyed silver tongue schemer
A girl like Jodi don’t think for herself
Him and that Harley and his damned jalapeño
Smokin that stuff’ll make you hurt yourself

Breakdown
Papa come quick
Papa come quick
Papa come quick
Papa come on
