I was sittin' at home all alone when I heard that telephone ring
And there on the line was a friend of mine sayin' he wasn't doin' a thing
So I'm steppin' out on the town tonight to party where the drinks are free
There's a sweet young thing ready and waitin' on me
Young and fine, strike you blind
Smokestack lightnin' make you lose your mind
She's got looks that kill can fire at will
Smokestack lightnin' she's all I need
When we got to the place I got me a taste
I knew she'd be good for a game
Dancin' out on the floor she was ready for more
She knew all the boys by their names
I said hey sweet thing let me pull your string
Let me take you home
I woke up in a hour with my money and my memory gone.
Young and fine strike you blind smokestack lightnin'
