Lyrics

Sometimes I think about.
The folks back home.
And 12 miles of road.
That I used to roam.
Sometimes I think about.
That crazy Willie Jean.
She ever get as far as New Orleans.

We used to spend the summer.
On a grassy river bank.
And drink hot water.
From a railroad filling tank.
Some nights I lie awake.
Just thinkin, Thinkin about Willie Jean.
She ever get as far as New Orleans.

Daddy told me son, I say ya,
Your gonna come to harm.
I'm gonna see you.
On that Knoxville County Farm.
Some nights I lie awake.
And I'm thinkin,
Thinkin about my Willie Jean.
She ever make it as far as New Orleans.

Some nights I lie awake and.
I think, think about Willie Jean.
She ever get as far as New Orleans.
Crazy Willie Jean. Far as New Orleans.
