lyrics

Small coastal town in Mississippi
Drove up to the bar, its blue collar Tuesdays
Four thirty pm and no barstool’s left empty
And everyone turns to look at me

Oh Michelle I don’t know you that well
How long have you lived in this town
Michelle you dance like you don’t give a care
Who touches your body or where
Oh Michelle, Michelle, Michelle
Michelle, Michelle, Michelle

As I start to play she begins to sway
With her short shorts and shirt pulled up over her waist
And she likes my songs, the ones about how I’ve been done wrong
She’s never heard them before but she’s singing along

Oh Michelle I don’t know you that well
How long have you lived in this town
Michelle you dance like you don’t give a care
Who touches your body or where
Oh Michelle, Michelle, Michelle
Michelle, Michelle, Michelle


Now the hurricane wiped out this whole town
But who was it who knocked you down
And shiny new houses where there were only craters
But who will rebuild you, Michelle?

I guess I’ll never know
What gave you the look you have now
As we roll out of town, broken beer bottles on the ground
I’m thinking on you, Michelle
Oh I’m thinking on you, Michelle

Oh Michelle I don’t know you that well
How long have you lived in this town
Michelle you dance like you don’t give a care
Who touches your body or where
Oh Michelle, Michelle, Michelle
Michelle, Michelle, Michelle
