Lyrics:

Dark night in Texas
Hoodoos on the prowl
Blues player's ghosts walkin' the back roads
I can hear the Wolf howl

Broke down on the black top
Far from any town
It's the blackest night I've ever seen in Texas
Can't even see my feet walkin' on the ground

Right now I visualize myself to be
Any some-other where but where I'm at
Picture me in the bright lights and the big city
Drivin' Lightnin's Cadillac

Up ahead two red tail-lights
Slowin' down for me
Texas plates on a long black Lincoln
Devil's in the driver's seat

He said come on, climb in, I'll help ya
Get to where ever you are bound
He said, I've helped all of the great ones
From Mr. Robert Johnson on down

Muddy, Big Mama, Jimi and Janis,
Stevie, Little Walter, John Lee
He said many had come his way
They all gave up their souls to him
And he taught them all how to play

He said, come on, hop in and take the ride.
He said, he'd help me too.
I said, well, that's alright, there's
some-other-where I'm goin', and
I'll just keep walkin' if it's all the same to you

Right now I visualize myself to be
Any-some-other where but where I'm at
Picture me in the bright lights and the big city
Drivin' Lightnin's Cadillac

Right now I visualize myself in Austin
Uptown at Antone's bar
Watchin' Buddy Guy up there on the stage
Sweat bullets on a polka dot guitar

Right now I visualize myself to be
Any-some-other where but where I'm at
Picture me in the bright lights and the big city
Drivin' Lightnin's Cadillac
