Del Reeves – Philadelphia Fillies lyrics

Well I'm sitting here a thinking about those Philadelphia Fillies
And some may think I'm talking bout baseball
But I'm talking about the ones that wear them dresses on so pretty
And the way they swing should be against the law

There's a lot of dangerous curves in that beautiful city
Oh but you'll never see no warning signs
And if you want to get right down to the nitty-gritty
You can bat a thousand every time

I met a Yankee in New York and I love an Angel out in la
But those Philadelphia Fillies tore my mind apart
And this Giant's leaving Frisco today
[ guitar - steel ]
There's some nice looking twins up in Minnesota
And Atlanta's got a brave girl or two
And I cuddled a cubby in old Chicago
But Philadelphia I'm a coming back to you

I met a Yankee in New York...

Well I'm sitting here a thinking about those Philadelphia Fillies...
There's some nice looking twins up in Minnesota...
