Lyrics

Sometimes I think about
the folks back home.
And 12 miles of road
that I used to roam.
Sometimes I think about
my 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.
