Songlines #5

Look at Miss Ohio
by Gillian Welch and David Rawlins
from the album Soul Journey

Oh me oh my oh, look at Miss Ohio
She’s a-running around with her rag-top down
She says 'I wanna do right but not right now'

I like lyrics that are a bit subtle, that let you know what the writer wants without being didactic. These few lines tell us Miss Ohio is a party girl, without being preachy about it, with a nice play on right.
