There was a dive bar and a cowboy
Well, not a cowboy really, but he wore the hat
And there was someone who looked like me
At least a little, but not exact

He said, "I'm gonna take you out proper
You and me are going to the zoo. "
And I pretended that I was bored
And I could take my eyes off of you

All I had to do was ask
I never knew that this would last
I never knew what I was in for
This town thinks it's got your number
It's unlisted, but they can wonder and guess and speculate on you and me

Little did I know,
Little did I see
Little did I know just how far our little car could go
Little did I know

Said he was damaged over whiskey

A kind of Kerouac over cigarettes
"Let me guess, you're a gambler, too?"
He said, "I bet I marry you."

Well, I was talking like a bad-ass, too
A kind of animal all my own
"No one's ever gonna tie me down,
Especially not some Romeo. "

All I had to do was look
You were such an open book
How could I miss what I was in for?
Go on ahead and be a loner
Pur on your distant look and roam around the west
Like Jack and Neal and Dean

Little did I know...

And I drove a thousand miles for you
I even bent the rules, it's true
I swear to everything above
I never knew you at all, my love
