Carl Perkins - Restless Lyrics


Well I walked up to her window

I said, gimme a ticket please

She said, where to mister?

I said, that's all right with me honey



I'm just restless

I need to get on out of town

I need to go right now

Take me where the living's easy

Baby, that's where I'll be found

Huh-huh, right now


I said, honey tell that driver

To put his big foot on that gas

Run this old grey dog

Just as long as it might last


I said, honey tell that driver

Take me farther down the road

Just take this grey dog

Any place he wants to go


I'm travelling light

Because I might be going far

Takin' nothing but the clothes on my back

And my big red guitar
