Lynyrd Skynyrd Lyrics

Jake (When the Smoke Clears)


A boy gets crazy when he's sittin' at the bar

Don't you mess with Jake don't you push him too far

Rotgut whiskey and homemade wine

Make a good country boy just lose his mind

Like a runaway train rollin' through the night the boy ain't got no fear

Like a race car hittin' the wall it gets hard to steer

Waitin' for the smoke to clear


oooh oooooh...


Betty got caught in the back of Bobby's car

Bobby got caught with his hand in the cookie jar

Her Daddy blew a fuse and went for his gun

Now Bobby and Betty they're on the run

Like a runaway train rollin' throught the night nothin's gonna stop them now

Gotta keep on moving cover their tracks somehow


Like a runaway train rollin' through the night

The kids ain't got no fear

Daddy swears bang is the last sound Bobby's gonna hear Oooohhh...

Waitin' for the smoke to clear


Daddy finally caught 'em and he emptied his gun

Put a dead end to all of Bobby's fun Oooohhh...

Good god almighty for heaven's sakes

Betty's Daddy turned out to be Jake


Like a runaway train rollin' through the night

Jake ain't got no fear

No hangman judge gonna give the boy 99 years


Here sits Jake in the back of this bar

Sippin' on an ice cold beer

If the law had a clue all they'd do is look right here

They'd see Jake

Waitin' for the smoke to clear .... Waitin' for...
