Hey, Eugene - 3:29  |  Morse SOCAN/BMI
 


Hey, Eugene tell me what's your little sister's name
Does it not go something like Becky Sue? Suzie Q?
Hey, Eugene well I'm never gonna be the same
ever since I met your little sister Linda Lou, with her faded denim blues

Eugene, he's a friend of mine, we lend a hand on his daddy's farm sometimes
if we aint too busy just actin' like fools, riding motorcycles, guitars, shoot some pool
we came ridin' on up the lane-way he says
"hey there's my little sister and her Corvette Stingray"
I took one look at it, but I knew she was born to run
with her hair so blonde and her legs so long

Hey, Eugene tell me what's your little sister's name
Does it not go something like Becky Sue? Suzie Q?
Hey, Eugene well I'm never gonna be the same
ever since I met your little sister Linda Lou, with her faded denim blues

Now Eugene's sister, she's a blue jean honky tonk twister
and I'm tellin' you mister, she wears them so fine
Hey, Eugene I gotta make her mine

Now Eugene's sister, she's a blue jean honky tonk twister

I took one look at it, but I knew she was born to run
with her her hair so blonde and her legs so long

Hey, Eugene tell me what's your little sister's name
Does it not go something like Becky Sue? Suzie Q?
Hey, Eugene well I'm never gonna be the same
ever since I met your little sister Linda Lou, with her faded denim blues...
with her faded denim blues...with her cut-off faded denim blues...

Hey Eugene, I think I'm in love buddy...(ha)

This one is another example of a song writing itself. I had a friend in grade school named Eugene and I was dabbling with some ideas like "Hey, Eugene" hasn't the world become such a mess since we were kids...blah blah blah. Anyway, nothing really materialized until one day a week or so later I picked up a guitar and the chorus just flew out of me. Again, I had the whole song completed in about half an hour. It has a real "Skynyrd" feel going on with the horns and honky-tonk piano. It's just a great little tune and is a lot of fun to perform. - PM
