lyrics

Well she's A like Alaska, she's A like Arkansas,
Handsomest thing that I ever saw.

I don't need no pistol with you at my side
With your eyes like caliber forty five.

Cincinnati on seven hills, Kenton county below,
Think an Ohio woman got a lien on my soul.

Wrap me in your mother's quilt, I'll be your monarch butterfly,
Tell a half truth, change to a viceroy right before your eye.

Gonna take me a greyhound, where you ain't been found,
Darling, I declare, find me a better care.

You was the page, and I was the ink,
Tell me what the writer think?
