Lyrics

She came down from the Ozarks
To the big city Memphis world
She's a legend and a landmark
Hillbilly drummer girl

A stomach full of whiskey,
More than any man
A bar of broken tables,
And empty gasoline cans
A black bohemuth Caddie,
Sleeping bag in back
Pulls right through the floor boards,
A rolling chicken shack

She came down from the Ozarks
To the big city Memphis world
She's a legend and a landmark
Hillbilly drummer girl
Hillbilly drummer girl

At Ten o'clock tomorrow,
Playing for a crowd of six
Free beer and eight dollars,
That's money for new sticks
Party 'cross the river,
Ends up in the mud
Morning in the drunk tank,
Coffee and dried blood

She came down from the Ozarks
To the big city Memphis world
She's a legend and a landmark
Hillbilly drummer girl
Hillbilly drummer girl

The ducks are in the lobby,
And Graceland's down the roll
A vacant lot, a pile of bricks,
Now she's the living soul

She came down from the Ozarks
To the big city Memphis world
She's a legend and a landmark
Hillbilly drummer girl
Hillbilly drummer girl
Hillbilly drummer girl
