Nadine

Lyrics: Chuck Berry
Music: Chuck Berry

A Chuck Berry song played by the New Riders of the Purple Sage.

As I got on a city bus and found a vacant seat
I thought I saw my future bride a-walking up the street
I shouted to the driver, "hey conductor, you must slow down"
"I think I see her, please let me off this bus"

Nadine
Honey is that you?
Oh, Nadine
Honey, is that you?
Seems like every time I see you darling
You got something else to do

I saw her from the corner as she turned and doubled back
She started walking t'ward a coffee colored Cadillac
I was pushing through the crowd to get to where she's at
And I was campaign shouting like a Southern diplomat

Nadine
Honey is that you?
Oh, Nadine
Honey, is that you?
Seems like every time I catch you, datcha
You're up to something new

Downtown searching for her, looking all around
Saw her getting in a yellow cab heading up town
I caught a loaded taxi, paid up everybody's tab
With a twenty dollar bill, told him, "catch that yellow cab"

Nadine
Honey is that you?
Oh, Nadine
Honey, is that you?
Seems like every time I see you darling
You got something else to do

She move around like a wave of summer breeze
Go, driver, go, go, catch her balmy breeze
Moving through the traffic like a mounted cavalier
Leaning out the taxi window trying to make her hear

Nadine
Honey is that you?
Oh, Nadine
Honey, is that you?
Seems like every time I catch you, datcha
You're up to something new
