    Standin' here, beside this freeway, wishing I was high
    Wondering why she said she loved me, then she said goodbye
    I'm down to my last dollar in these faded old blue jeans
    So adios to Amarillo, hello New Orleans

    Her hair was made of summer sunlight, the moon lit in her eyes
    Her voice would ride the wind at midnight across the starry skies
    Love is blind, that's what they tell me in all those magazines
    So adios to Amarillo, hello New Orleans

    We talked about our lives together, we talked about our plans
    We walked through rain and windy weather across the shifting sands
    She took the car, that's how I know, this ain't no crazy dream
    So adios to Amarillo, hello New Orleans

    I'll eat my fill of jambalaya and crawfish etouffe
    I'll drink the Mississippi dry, laissez les bon temps rouler
    I'll trade her memory in on one of those Cajun queens
    So adios to Amarillo, hello New Orleans
    So adios to Amarillo, hello New Orleans
