He was drivin' home one evening 
in his beat up Pontiac,
When an old lady flagged him down,
her Mercedez had a flat

He could see that she was frightened,
standin' out there in the snow
Til he said "I'm here to help you maam, 
by the way my name's Joe".

She said "I'm from St-Louis" 
and I'm only passin' through
I must've seen 100 cars go by 
this is awful nice of you

When he changed the tire and closed her trunk 
and was about to drive away
She said how much do I owe you, 
here's what he had to say..

"You don't owe me a thing, 
I've been there too
And someone once helped me out
Just the way I'm helping you."

"If you really want to pay me back
Here's what you do
Don't let the chain of 
love end with you".

Well a few miles down the road
the lady saw a small cafe
She went in to grab a bite to eat 
and then be on her way

But she couldn't help but 
notice how the waitress smiled so sweet
And how she must've been eight months 
along and dead on her feet

And though she didn't know her 
story and probably never will
When the waitress went to get her 
change from a hundred dollar bill.

The lady slipped right out the door 
and on a napkin left a note
There were tears in the waitress' 
eyes when she read what she wrote

"You don't owe me a thing, 
I've been there too
And someone once helped me out
Just the way I'm helping you."

"If you really want to pay me back
Here's what you do
Don't let the chain of 
love end with you".

That night when she got home from 
work the waitress climbed into bed
She was thinkin' about the money 
and what the lady's note had said

As her husband lay there sleepin' 
she whispered soft and low
"Everything's gonna be alright, 
I love you - Joe".
