Country Girl Blues

Album: not on an album (2001)
  • songfacts ®
  • "Country Girl Blues" is one of a number of songs that appear in the 2001 erotic thriller Forbidden Highway. Written and performed by (the non-existent) Junior Lightning Boy, it appears around 55 minutes into the film:

    Country girl
    Look so fine baby
    But I ain't got the time

    That may be what the song says, but the film says something very different, because after having his car stolen by the female lead, Elrey is offered a lift by a country girl, and shortly they end up naked in the back of her truck under the desert sun.

    "Country Girl Blues" is copyrighted 1999 by Hopkins-Olaitan Music. >>
