Papa Come Quick
Bonnie Raitt Lyrics


Papa come quick, Joy's gone to the city
What we gonna do now that Jody's gone
She left a note on the TV and Papa it's a pity
What we gonna do now that Jody's gone.

Mama's been cryin' in the kitchen since mornin'
She cried right through As The World Turns
I seen it myself and papa it's a bitchin'
Let's haul ass before the baby gets burned.
Gas up the old Ford, get out the road map
They got a head start about half a day
Load up the shotgun, put it in the gun rack
Jody's with Chico down in East L.A.

It must have been that wild-eyed, silver-tongued schemer
A girl like Jody don't think for herself.
Him and that Harley and his damn Jalapeno
Smokin' that stuff'll make you hurt yourself.

Papa come quick
Papa come quick
Papa come quick
Papa come on

Papa come quick, Joy's gone to the city
What we gonna do now that Jody's gone
She left a note on the TV and Papa it's a pity
What we gonna do now that Jody's gone.

Gas up the old Ford, get out the road map
They got a head start about half a day
Stop at the Mobil, pump up the the flat wheel
Jody & Chico and his ding dang deal.

In my dreams, I'm playing in the band. Accordion, mandola? Dunno - but I am singing bass on the chorus...

I was genuinely disappointed when this wasn't on the greatest hits album. I discovered Bonnie right after I started junior high and used to play this over and over as I bopped around the kitchen with my air guitar. Thanks for the upload:)

Billy Vera

Haha! No one was more disappointed than I was!!

Here's the Redhead singing our song with me on my tremolo Telecaster.

Billy Vera co wrote this gem. I usually pour over every detail of the music I buy and never knew this. This is a whole lot of fun to sing while driving down the interstate and this came out as I was returning from Iraq in 91 and as usual, everything is a little cooler when Billy Vera is involved. If your reading this please find Retro Nuevo from 88 from Billy Vera & the Beaters.
“Ronnie’s song” Heart be still, somewhere between like and love which is how you will feel after digging that album.
