Biloxi Lady    (1984)

Well the sun's coming up and I'm staring at a cup of tequila
Trying to find the courage to turn myself around
And every time I take another sip I can see her
Looking back at me like I might drown

There's a dark-eyed lady lying alone in Biloxi
And these miles and the cold are beginning to rattle my bones
Sometimes it takes leaving for a man to see he was lucky
So seaboard highway take this boy back home

All I can see up ahead is a big lonely highway
Taking me further and further away from my home
I was a fool who always wanted her to see things my way
But I guess it takes time for a fool to see he was wrong

There's a dark-eyed lady lying alone in Biloxi
And these miles and the cold are beginning to rattle my bones
Sometimes it takes leaving for a man to see he was lucky
So seaboard highway take this boy back home

Straining my eyes I can almost see the lights of the city
Where the sun is beginning to fall down into the bay
Oh I don't think I've ever seen her looking so pretty
Now Biloxi this time I'm coming home to stay

There's a dark-eyed lady lying alone in Biloxi
And these miles and the cold are beginning to rattle my bones
Sometimes it takes leaving for a man to see he was lucky
So seaboard highway take this poor boy home

Seaboard highway take this poor boy home
