Jerry Jeff Walker – Got Lucky Last Night lyrics

Jerry Jeff Walker

Well I was down at the Cotton Club last night
With a couple of my buddies drinking beer
We were lookin' for something I ain't never seen
Boys, I'm grinnin' from ear to ear
When I see her long legs come walking in the door
And her high heels clicking on the floor
I knew right then I'd be headin' in
To something I ain't never seen before

That's right I got lucky last night, that's right
Yea, I'm telling you true, it could happen to you
I got lucky last night

Well I took my hands out of my pants
And walked up and asked her to dance
Oh, we two-stepped, we three-stepped,
'Fore you even know it, we were tighter than old Jimmy J's pants
Ain't nothing to learn, one slide or a turn
With a big move over to the side
Where we don't have to shout, and we can both figure out
How we're gonna get away from here light

That's right lucky last night, that's right
Yea, I'm telling you true, it could happen to you
I got lucky last night
Oh, that's right, that's right
I got lucky last night, that's right
I'm telling you true, it could happen to you
I got lucky last night

Well this lovely lady with keys to a car
Whispered she didn't live far
I said who cares, she said how come chum
We don't skate out of this bar
So we dosi-doed, we grand right and left
And grabbed two six-packs from the bar
While some fool sang Goodnight Irene,
I mean we both gone in the car

Son, that's right, I got lucky last night, that's right
I'm telling you true, it could happen to you
But it happened to me, yessiree
That's right, lucky last night, that's right
Ain't no reason or rhyme, it just happens sometime
You got lucky that's right, oh last night, that's right
I got lucky last night, that's right
I'm telling you true, it could happen to you
I got lucky last night
