Jerry Reed - Tupelo Mississippi Flash Lyrics

  • Tupelo Mississippi Flash
  • Im gonna tell you a story thats all about
  • This job I had one time as a talent scout, hmm.
  • I had a hard day at the office and the boss wasnt in town
  • The day this hired legged guitar picker just happened to come around.
  • Well, he walks in my office with a great big grin,
  • And folks thats where my story really begins.
  • He said, Son my name is Boregard Rippy.
  • I come to you from Tupelo Mississippi.
  • I write songs thatll sing like a bird,
  • I play licks on my guitar like you aint never heard.
  • But Im down on my luck and things are just a little slack.
  • I gotta quarter in my pocket and a shirt on my back.
  • But you buy me some supper and give me a place I can sleep
  • He said Ill sing you some songs thatll rock your head to sleep.
  • I got talent boy.Said back home they call me the Tupelo Mississippi Flash
  • Well I knew I was in a room with some kind of a nut
  • When he pulled out that pack of used cigarette butts.
  • So thats when I told him We cant use you today?
  • So I handed the boy a dollar and sent him on his way
  • Well the boss got back and we both had a laugh
  • When I told him bout the Tupelo Mississippi Flash
  • And pretty soon I had the story circling around
  • About this Mississippi nut that we had in our town.
  • I said, watch him everybody, the boys squirrelly!
  • He walks around calling himself the Tupelo Mississippi Flash.?
  • Well it happened one day while I was driving to my home
  • I just happened to have my car radio on.
  • When I heard the jockey raving about a brand new smash
  • By a kid called the Tupelo Mississippi Flash
  • I almost wrecked my automobile
  • I went through a red light
  • I hit the traffic cop....Why??
  • Well my storys got an ending and its short and sweet
  • The boss man he fired me and left me out in the street
  • But I got a new job now and Im as learnin real fast
  • Im drivin the bus for the Tupelo Mississippi Flash
  • And his Cadillac Im driving that for him too
  • And that yacht hes got.
  • And is there a plane??
  • Well chauffeur, chauffeur I hear him say
  • Tupelo Mississippi, who ever heard of it...........
