JT Hodges – “Hunt You Down”

I came up river on a gravel barge from New Orleans
She was standin’ on the cobblestones in a pair of cut-off jeans
I asked what she was doin’, she said sugar I’m killin’time
Then I handed her my wallet and said baby so am I

She said you might need these and then handed me her shades
Took me to a bar room darker than the ace of spades
I asked what’s this we’re drinkin’, she said call it smoky blues
Couldn’t tell you what it tasted like, but I know I had a few

CHORUS
And we danced and we laughed, never talked about tomorrow
We just lived a little in the here and now
With her hands, in my hair like a million magic fingers
She said look me up when you get back to town
Look you up I said, hell I’m gonna hunt you down
Na Na Na Na Na Na Na Na Na Na Na Na Na Na Na Na
Hunt you down

She asked where I was comin’ from I said I’m just comin’ round
How ‘bout you, then she drove me to the highest hill in Germantown
Daddy’s money bought the mansion, they threw in the plane for free
She said I can drop you off anywhere or you can stay with me

REPEAT CHORUS

Last night I saw a falling star dive straight into the river
And I thought about that girl in Germantown
I gotta hunt her down

REPEAT CHORUS
