Lyrics to "Mary Jane's Last Dance"

She grew up in an Indiana town
Had a good lookin' mama who never was around

But she grew up tall and she grew up right
With them Indiana boys on them Indiana nights


Well, she moved down here at the age of eighteen
She blew the boys away, was more than they'd seen

I was introduced and we both started groovin'
She said, "I dig you baby, but I got to keep movin' on
Keep movin' on."


Last dance with Mary Jane, one more time to kill the pain
I feel summer creepin' in and I'm tired of this town again


Well, I don't know, but I've been told
You never slow down, you never grow old

I'm tired of screwin' up, tired of going down
Tired of myself, tired of this town


Oh, my, my, Oh, hell yes
Honey, put on that party dress
Buy me a drink, sing me a song
Take me as I come cause I can't stay long


--- Hook ---
Last dance with Mary Jane, one more time to kill the pain
I feel summer creepin' in and I'm tired of this town again


There's pigeons down on Market Square
She's standin' in her underwear
Lookin' down from a hotel room
Nightfall will be comin' soon


Oh, my, my, Oh, hell yes
You got to put on that party dress

It was too cold to cry when I woke up alone
I hit my last number and walked to the road


Last dance with Mary Jane, one more time to kill the pain
I feel summer creepin' in and I'm tired of this town again

How do you think about the song "Mary Jane's Last Dance"
