“Crash Course in the Blues” Lyrics

To a boy from Indiana
I’m fresh off of the farm
L.A. looks like heaven
With ever open arms

My mama said, “Son, watch yourself”
Like mamas always do
My daddy said, “Those city girls
Will walk all over you”

So I hit the pavement runnin’
Hollywood and Vine
Got to town at seven
Yeah, I fell in love at nine

She was a California angel
With alligator shoes
She had that certain somethin’
That a poor boy can’t refuse

She was incredible
She was a crash course in the blues

Now we’re screamin’ down the freeway
In a fancy foreign car
And we hit all the parties
I never seen so many stars

Just when I’m about to make my move
And ask her to be mine
She hauls up with somebody else
And kisses me goodbye

She was incredible
She was a crash course in the blues

[break]

She was just too hot to handle
For a country boy like me
She’s still a roman candle
Burnin’ in my memory

She was incredible
She was a crash course in the blues
She was incredible
She was a crash course in the blues
She was incredible
She was a crash course in the blues
