Girl On The Billboard - Del Reeves

Girl On The Billboard

Del Reeves

(Walter Haynes - Hank Mills, UNITED ARTISTS 824, 1965)

Doodle-de-do-doo, a-doodle-do-do-do
Who is the girl wearin' nothing but a smile and a towel
In the picture on the billboard in the field near the big ol' highway?
Rollin' down the highway in my Jimmy hauling freight
From Chicago to St. Louis, Lord I see her everyday
A double clutchin' weasel like me can hardly ever
Get a girl to look at him that way
Smiling like the girl wearin' nothing but a smile and a towel
In the picture on the billboard in the field near the big ol' highway

Wow, what a girl wearin' nothing but a smile and a towel
In the picture on the billboard in the field near the big ol' highway
I bet it wouldn't take her very long to get gone
If someone would pull a dirty trick and take her towel away
I slow my Jimmy down to twenty
That's how many wrecks I see there every day
Caused by the girl wearin' nothing but a smile and a towel
In the picture on the billboard in the field near the big ol' highway
A-doodle-do-do-doo, a-doodle-do-do-doo

Oh, I love the girl wearin' nothing but a smile and a towel
In the picture on the billboard in the field near the big ol' highway
I guess I'm gettin' bolder 'cause I'd rather kiss and hold her
Than just keep a lookin' at her everyday
At 4:45 coffee drinkin' eatin' time Jimmy shimmied
While I woke up the artist that painted the display
Of the girl wearin' nothing but a smile and a towel
In the picture on the billboard in the field near the big ol' highway

Doggone that girl wearin' nothing but a smile and a towel
In the picture on the billboard in the field near the big ol' highway
A sleepy headed painter said the girl wasn't real
And I'd better get the (#$%^&) on my way
On Route 66 from the billboard to Chicago
You will find tiny pieces of my heart scattered every which a-way
Shattered by the girl wearin' nothing but a smile and a towel
In the picture on the billboard in the field near the big ol' highway
A-doodle-do-do-doo, a-doodle-do-do-doo
Doodle-do-do-doo (fade)
