about

This version (as opposed to the LIVE version on "Live Dogs") was recorded at Denny Martin Music in Nashville, TN. I'm not SURE who the musicians are, but it's quite possible that all instruments are by Denny Martin. An old memory sucks! I just am not certain.

Written at my apartment at the time, this song was pretty much just a story that unfolded, although I do remember that the "black-haired lady" was someone that Steve kind of had a crush on I think . . . (I'll never tell . . .)

The progression(s), and key changes, as odd as they are, just seemed natural . . . As I recall, we developed the story together over my music.

lyrics

PULL OVER

This goes out to the black-haired lady in the dark blue Ford stepside
Westbound I-40 in the fast lane, twenty miles from the Jackson line
Michael's callin' on his cellphone, to get this message to you
So if you're listenin', he's the red Mustang, smilin' in your rearview

Sounds like you've got a love thing there
Hold on, I'll put Michael on the air

Pull over at the next truck stop
I'll buy the coffee, I'd sure like to talk
Pull over, I like the way you smiled at me
There's no tellin' where this might lead
So if you'd like to meet, pull over

It's three twenty on your drive-time station, our Romeo is still on the line
He'd like to make a dedication to the lady in the Ford stepside
It's John Michael Montgomery singin' "Life's a Dance"
If you want to, give him a sign, if not, he'll understand

If I were you I'd give him a try
He sounds like a real nice guy

Pull over at the next truck stop
I'll buy the coffee, I'd sure like to talk
Pull over, I like the way you smiled at me
There's no tellin' where this might lead
So if you'd like to meet, pull over

Wait a minute let's go to line two
There's a lady with a message for you

I'll pull over at the next truck stop
If you'll buy coffee, I'd sure like to talk
I'll pull over, I like the way you smiled at me
There's no tellin' where this might lead
Yes, I'd like to meet, pull over
