Lyrics

Starin' through a spider web where the windshield used to be
What's left of the dashboard, the smell of gasoline
I could just make out one neon light, south off through the trees
My feet took off a walkin', 'fore my mind caught up with me
When I walked in, my tab was already open
My drink was poured, my cigarette was smokin'
Somebody said "Hey girl,
where ya been? Don't ya know I been waitin' for ya?"
I got a band up there been dyin' to
play a little Devil Went Down to Georgia
Rest that travelin' soul, looks like the road was long"
Welcome to Southern Babylon
I had to pull myself together and ask to use the phone
The waitress smiled a wicked grin that sent a chill right to my bone
I said I need to call the tow truck, some way to move along
She said "Who you wanna call, now that you've been called home?"
She said "Hey girl, where ya been?
Don't ya know I been waitin' for ya?"
I got a band up there just dyin' to play a little Hotel California.
Maybe it's not sinkin' in, but you'll learn to play along
Honey, you've been gone since you walked into Southern Babylon."
I'm not supposed to be here, Bartender don't you see
I took a gig down in Atlanta and the brakes gave out on me
She said "We know all about ya. It's a little bit too late."
She handed me a guitar and pointed to the flames
Hey girl, where ya been? Don't ya know I been waitin' for ya?
I got a band up there just dyin' to
play a little Devil Went Down to Georgia
Rest that travelin' soul, looks like the road was long
Welcome to Southern Babylon
Southern Babylon
Welcome to Southern Babylon
Welcome home
