recorded By Emmylou Harris
written by
Rodney Crowell and Emmylou Harris
My baby never was a cheating kind
But It wasn't cause the ladies didn't try

Now every where we go they're walking round him slow
Giving him a flutter and a sigh

Now I got him past that redhead in Atlanta
G7 C
Lord I walked all over that Blackeyed Cajun queen
But outside of Amarillo he found his thrill I tell you
I lost him to a jukebox and a pinball machine

Oh Amarillo what'd you want my baby for
C A7 D7
Oh Amarillo now he won't come home no more
You done played a trick on me hooked him in the first degree
Put in another quarter first Dolly and then Porter

While he racks up fifty thousand on the pinball machine

If you only hadn't stopped in Clearwater
If someone hadn't played the window up above

Oh he'd still be mine today but he heard those fiddles play
One look and then I knew this must be love

Oh that pinball machines in the corner
But he saw the lights and he had to hear 'em ring
And he never was the same after he won his first free game
oh I lost him to the jukebox and a pinball machine

repeat #4
