Spokane Motel Blues

Spokane Motel Blues

Tom T. Hall

I don't know what I'm doing here, I could be someplace else
Like in Atlanta drinkin' wine, wine, wine
I don't know what I'm doing here, I should be someplace else
Like in Kentucky drinkin' 'shine, 'shine, 'shine
The dogs are running down in Memphis
And them nags are running in LA
I'm stuck in Spokane in a motel room
And there ain't no way to get away
Willie Nelson's picking out in Austin
And Waylon's hanging out in Mexico
I'm stuck in Spokane in a motel room
And Kris is making movin' picture shows
Hey, I don't know what I'm doing here, I could be someplace else
Like in Atlanta drinkin' wine, wine, wine
I don't know what I'm doing here, I should be someplace else
Like in Kentucky drinkin' 'shine, 'shine, 'shine
Well I know they're dancing in New Orleans
And old Chicago's bright as day
I'm stuck in Spokane in a motel room
Lord, I wish I had a Dolly Parton tape
Well Hill and Bare and Billy Joe they're gambling
And ol' TP's frying croppie all night long
They're down at Tootsie's eating chili
I'm stuck in Spokane a-writing songs
Hey, I don't know what I'm doing here, I could be someplace else
Like in Atlanta drinkin' wine, wine, wine
I don't know what I'm doing here, I should be someplace else
Like in Kentucky drinkin' clear moonshine
