i’ll follow you lyrics – reo speedwagon

late one night on a road in texas
i pulled into an all-night cafe
what’s my pleasure? well ma’am the fact is, i don’t know

sat down next to a “rajun’ cajun”
a black haired beauty from new orleans
did my duty can i buy you a drink dear
she said “please”


(so) we rolled right along,
and the night got long
so i said how would you like it to be?

then she sang her song
said “if i come along
you must find a place in your heart for me”

i was lost on a road to nowhere
and asked if she was goin’ my way
she was late for a date with no one
(so) please don’t leave

she’d just left a love that was dying
and had no plans of goin back
i caught her eyes as she was crying
“let’s make tracks”

bridge chorus

she said, “i’ll follow, i’ll follow you on your dare
your eyes say something, your heart better care
you’re lost and you’re lonely, i’ve been to long there
so i’ll follow, i’ll follow you… anywhere
