Written by Marty Stuart

Well if you're down in Mississippi, where the livin's slow
And you're just standin' on the corner, wonderin' which way to go
Just take a walk across town, to Beacon and Bay
Now you're right in front of the Busy Bee Cafe
Well there's Old Uncle Furry, he's a sittin' on the side
If you will talk to him just right, he might play you some of his slide guitar
He's got shoe shine's a-pumpin', five dollars a day
And it's all goin' on at the Busy Bee Cafe

It's just a good time, no crime, mighty fine, have a nice day
I see Lavala in the corner, speedin' her young life away

I've heard that jukebox play "High Heel Sneakers" twenty times a day
But when night rolls around, they move it out of theway
"Cause Footes and the boys, they come to town to play, 'til the break of day
Makin' everybody feel good at the Busy Bee Cafe

It's just a good time, no crime, mighty fine, have a nice day
I see Lavala in the corner, speedin' her young life away

If you're down in Mississippi, where the livin's slow
And you're just standin' on the corner, wonderin' which way to go
Just take a walk across town, to Beacon and Bay, yeah
Now you're right in front of the Busy Bee Cafe
Well, now you're right in front of the Busy Bee Cafe
