Rythym And Rouge
 
Lyrics
VERSE
First one at the club; the last one to leave
Whatever she's thinkin,' she ain't naive
Guitar man in the band; she likes what she sees
Now just watch her let him know that she's aimin' to please

CHORUS
('Cause) (Yeah) He's got the rhythm and blues
She's got the rhythm and rouge
Two sticks of dynamite; very short fuse
Yeah, he's got the rhythm and blues
She's got the rhythm and rouge

VERSE
He's been on the road near 'bout all his life
Not very conducive to kids and a wife
She's pretty good at falling in love, but she never made it last
Now you know she don't like slow when things could be fast

Repeat CHORUS

BRIDGE
Now they're quite the combination
You might say they were meant for each other
They won't give much time to pleasantries
Better off to just get it on...

RIDE

Repeat CHORUS

TAG
Yeah, he's got the rhythm and blues
She's got the rhythm and rouge

Long Song Description:
She goes to a club where there's a band. She's looking. She picks out the lead guitar player. They both have the rhythm. He plays the blues, and she wears the rouge. The night ends as expected. They're both lonely, and they're drowning their loneliness in such "relationships."
Story Behind the Song:
Heard Jerry Jeff Walker say one time when talking to an audience member something about "rhythm and rouge." Couldn't find a song on the subject, so....
