    A friend and I made one shot run to Knoxville one day
    We got the apple pie and coffee hungries on the way
    We pulled into a little truckstop just outside of town
    Pretty soon the waitress came around
    She said my name is Betty and I'd know you anywhere
    I'd like to have a minute of your time if you don't care
    Would you sing a song about me and the waitresses you've met
    About the broken promises we get
    Now listen Betty I'm singing your song about the drivers
    that have done you wrong
    All I wanna do is lay the blame where it belongs listen
    Betty I'm singing your song
    [ piano ]There's a broken heart for every truckstop on the right
    There's a lonesome driver for each passing set of lights
    Now I can't tell you how to love or tell you how to
    live all I can do is tell it like it is
    There's a million waitresses all up and down the line

    I've seen some that were laughin' and I've seen some that were cryin'
    I've left some that were happy and I've left some that were blue
    If you're a waitress here's a song for you
    Now listen Betty...
    [ piano ]The highway is a part of hell that never caught on fire
    The driver is the kinda man that devil wouldn't hire
    That's what you're sayin' Betty but you can't stand the heat
    Quit that job and let those drivers be
    Now listen Betty...
    Now listen Betty...
