    Highly Strung

    This is the song of little Jo
    She’s not the girl I used to know
    Forever screaming all the day and night
    She used to be a diplomat
    But now she’s down the laundromat
    They washed her mind
    And now she finds it hard
    I know her name
    But now she never seems the same
    She don’t talk to me
    ’cause she can’t take no sympathy
    Because she’s highly strung
    Oh highly strung, she’s undone
    Highly strung
    She’s stepping out upon the ledge,
    She’s got a gun against her
    She’s wired up to blow
    The power line
    She’s walking out upon the knife
    She’ll take you to the edge of life
    Just like the song,
    The pressure is on again
    I know her name
    But now she never seems the same
    She don’t talk to me
    ’cause she can’t take no sympathy
    Because she’s highly strung
    Oh highly strung, she’s undone
    Highly strung
    This is the song of little Jo
    She’s not the girl I used to know
