Arkansas Seesaw - Jerry Lee Lewis

Arkansas Seesaw

Jerry Lee Lewis

(Thomas Cain - Michael Bacon, MERCURY, 1977)

I can hear that phone a-ringin'
Ringin' in Arkansas
Well, it might as well be ringin' on the moon

She wasn't there like she promised
You could say she lied
I can almost hear that echo
Through that empty room

Arkansas seesaw
Little Rock merri-go-round
She couldn't see one man at a time
Arkansas seesaw
She saw me for a good time
Arkansas seesaw
Has two-timed and gone

What a fool I was to trust her
Well, I might as well trust the wind
I don't know where she's going
But she's gone
So a-here I sit a-drinkin'
Drinkin' all alone
And listenin' to her phone a-ringin'
On an' on

Arkansas seesaw
Little rock merri-go-round
She couldn't see one man at a time
Arkansas seesaw
She saw me for a good time
Arkansas seesaw
Has two-timed and gone

Arkansas seesaw
Little rock merri-go-round
She couldn't see one man at a time
Arkansas seesaw
She saw me for a good time
Arkansas seesaw
Has two-timed and gone

(Arkansas seesaw)
(Little Rock merri-go-round) Whoa!
(She couldn't see one man at a time)
(Arkansas seesaw)
(She saw me for a good time)
(Arkansas seesaw, has two-timed and gone)

[Fade]
Arkansas seesaw
Little Rock merri-go-round
Arkansas seesaw
She couldn't see one man at a time
Arkansas seesaw
She saw me for a good time
Arkansas seesaw, has two-timed and gone
