Operator (Jorma Kaukonen)

Operator, can you help me? Help me if you please Give me the right area code And the number that I need My rider left upon the Midnight Flyer Singing like a summer breeze I think she's somewhere down south Down about Baton Rouge But I just can't remember no number A number I can use, directory don't have it Central done forgot it Got to find a number to use Trying to check out her number Trying to run down her line Operator said that's privileged information And it ain't no business of mine It's flooding down in Texas, the poles are down in Utah Got to find a private line She could be hanging round a steel mill Working in a house of blue light Riding a getaway bus out of Portland Talking to the night I don't know where she's going I don't care where she's been Long as she's been doin' it right Long as she's been doin' it right
