Papa Come Quick (Jody and Chico)
by Bonnie Raitt



Papa come quick Jody's gone to the city
What we gonna do now that Jody's gone
She left a note on the TV and papa it's a pity
What we gonna do now that Jody's gone

Well Mama's been crying in the kitchen since morning
She cried right through As the World Turns
I Seen it myself and papa its a picture
Lets haul ass before the baby gets burned

Gas up the old Ford, get out your roadmap
They got a headstart about a half a day
Load up the shotgut, put it in the gun rack
Jody's with Chico down in East LA

Well he musta been a wild-eyed silver-tongued schemer
A girl like Jody don't think for herself
Him and that holly and his damned halepena
Smoking that stuff will make you hurt yourself

Papa come quick
Papa come quick
Papa come quick
Hey Papa come on

Papa come quick Jody's gone to the city
What we gonna do now that Jody's gone
She left a note on the TV and papa it's a pity
What we gonna do now that Jody's gone

Gas up the old Ford, get out your roadmap
They got a headstart about a half a day
Stop at the Mobile pump up the flat wheel

Mama's been crying in the kitchen since morning
She cried right through "As the World Turns"
Seen it myself and papa its a picture
Lets haul ass before the baby gets burned
