“Lido Shuffle, The”
Artist: Boz Scaggs
Albums: Silk Degrees ()

Lido missed the boat that day he left the shack
But that was all he missed, he ain't comin' back

At a tombstone bar in a juke-joint car he made a stop
Just long enough to grab a handle off the top
Next stop Chi-town, Lido put the money down, let her roll
He say, "one more job oughta get it
One last shot 'fore we quit it"
One for the road


Lido, whoa-oh-oh-oh...
He's for the money, he's for the show
Lido's a-waitin' for another go
Lido, whoa-oh-oh-oh-oh...
[1: He said] one more job oughta get it
One last shot, [1: 'fore 2: then] we quit it
One more for the road

Lido be runnin', havin' great big fun 'til he got the note
Sayin' "toe the line or blow it" and that was all she wrote
He be makin' like a beeline, headin' for the borderline, goin' for broke
Sayin, "one more hit oughta do it"
This joint, ain't nothin' to it
One more for the road"
