Jonnie The Foxx

Verse 1

I see a crash up ahead, there's fire all over the highway
Got a roadblock to run, tryin' to get back to my baby
Gotta keep these wheels from fallin' off the track
Lookin' over my shoulder, never goin' back
My baby's callin' me tonight, she said, "I need you by my side"

Verse 2

Gotta keep these wheels rollin' on toward the sunrise
I can't touch you, baby, can't reach out through the phone lines
Got a bad connection on the telephone
She's callin' me fron the danger zone
She said, "I miss you, baby, you've been away too long"

Chorus 1

Her name is JONNIE THE FOXX, she's my woman and my lover
She says there's trouble tonight, the boys are goin' undercover
I keep callin' her, but, the lines are dead
I just can't forget the last thing she said
She said, "There's danger, baby, don't ride in all alone"

Verse 3

I got a nasty reputation, but, she knows me better than others
She knows I'd fight for her, lay my life down for my brothers
The way the world is now, you gotta watch your back
To keep your own ideals from fallin' off the track
I got a bad case of 'Radar Love', this highway's turning cold

Bridge

Been runnin' on so long, rollin' on this rainswept highway
It's drawin' me back, callin' me home to you
She's waitin' for me, never should've left that woman
I'm headin' back to her, ridin' toward the break of day

Chorus 2

Her name is JONNIE THE FOXX, she's a woman like no other
She says there's trouble tonight, the boys are goin' undercover
Got a bad connection on the telephone
She's been callin' me from the danger zone
She said, "I miss you, baby, I want you by my side"...(INST)

Chorus 1

Her name is JONNIE THE FOXX, she's my woman and my lover
She says there's trouble tonight, the boys are goin' undercover
I keep callin' her, but, the lines are dead
I just can't forget the last thing she said
She said, "There's danger, baby, don't ride in all alone"

Chorus 2

Her name is JONNIE THE FOXX, she's a woman like no other
She says there's trouble tonight, the boys are goin' undercover
Got a bad connection on the telephone
She's been callin' me from the danger zone
She said, "I miss you, baby, I want you by my side"

Outro

Her name is JONNIE THE FOXX
There's gonna be trouble tonight
Her name is JONNIE THE FOXX
Gonna be trouble tonight
Trouble tonight
JONNIE THE FOXX
She's my woman and my lover.......
JONNIE THE FOXX, JONNIE THE FOXX
