Lyrics

I could check into the motel under an alias
I could be you tonight, Christine
I know you got no money
‘Cause you told me so
I know you got no credit
I still love you so
You are the songbird of skid music row
Wish I could go everywhere
You can go

If I could be you, girl
I’d never go home
If I could be you, girl
I’d never go home

I’d kick my turquoise cowgirl boots
Under the motel bed
Then I’d rest my weary, pretty little gypsy head
Then I’d hitch a ride to texas with a good-lookin’ man
He’s a poet with kitchenette in his Econo van

If I could be you, girl
I’d never go home
If I could be you, girl
I’d never go home

There was a time I felt so down I didn’t know what to do
Over the steel bridge
Copper pennies were the wishes that I threw
It rained all day, it rained all night
Those copper pennies changed my life
I looked into the bathroom mirror
Instead of me, you appeared

God bless copper penny wishes and that old steel bridge
For givin’ me the chance to make this Freaky Friday switch
My new tour bus has your namesake splashed across the side
It says Christine in rhinestones and lights up with a neon sign

If you could be me, girl
You’d never go home
If you could be me, girl
You’d never go home
If you could be me, girl
You’d never go home
