Boz Scaggs – Lido Shuffle lyrics

[Intro:]
Lido missed the boat that day he left the shack
But that was all he missed, he ain't comin' back

[Verse:]
At a tombstone bar in a juke-joint car he made a stop
Just long enough to grab a handle off the top
Next stop Chi-town, Lido put the money down, let her roll
He say, "one more job oughta get it
One last shot 'fore we quit it"
One for the road

[Chorus:]
Lido, whoa-oh-oh-oh....
He's for the money, he's for the show
Lido's a-waitin' for another go
Lido, whoa-oh-oh-oh-oh....
[1: He said] one more job oughta get it
One last shot, [1: 'fore 2: then] we quit it
One more for the road

[Verse 2:]
Lido be runnin', havin' great big fun 'til he got the note
Sayin' "toe the line or blow it" and that was all she wrote
He be makin' like a beeline, headin' for the borderline, goin'
For broke
Sayin, "one more hit oughta do it"
This joint, ain't nothin' to it
One more for the road"

[Chorus:]
Lido, whoa-oh-oh-oh....
He's for the money, he's for the show
Lido's a-waitin' for another go
Lido, whoa-oh-oh-oh-oh....
[1: He said] one more job oughta get it
One last shot, [1: 'fore 2: then] we quit it
One more for the road
Instrumental break:

[Chorus:]
Lido, whoa-oh-oh-oh....
He's for the money, he's for the show
Lido's a-waitin' for another go
Lido, whoa-oh-oh-oh-oh....
[1: He said] one more job oughta get it
One last shot, [1: 'fore 2: then] we quit it
One more for the road
