I don’t want to be rude
But when I’m in this room with you
I’m in five other rooms too
And I don’t want to impose
She was so sweet
From 600 miles away
When this rock-n-roll beach weekend ends
I just might stay

Stuck in Wilmington with barely ’hundred dollars to my name
Some joker had to come and take almost of what I had left
From the Dockside Bar in Wrightsville Beach to Bullard’s Billiards in Burgaw
Wonder if I’ve learned anything yet

And I don’t want to be rude…

I left Ohio with my head on fire
And a wedding ring in my bag
I’d caught her up all night again with some white-trash friend
And I had two shows to do in two days

But she was all I had left
When I called from a friend’s
Who lived beside the Wanda Inn
And she said “baby, when are you coming home?”

North Carolina highway
Stuck in traffic just north of Raleigh
Driving this truck like we stole it
Trying to get home

And I don’t want to be rude, but…
