About the song
The lyrics tell the story of a man seeing a beautiful woman walking down the street. He longs for her and wonders if a beautiful woman like her could be lonely like him. At the last minute of the composition, she turns around and approaches him.
Roy Orbison and his partner Bill Dees were sitting at Orbison’s house trying to compose a song. In search of a melody, they played everything that came to mind. Roy Orbison’s wife, Claudette, looked into the room and informed her husband that she was going to the city for shopping. Roy asked if she needed money, and then Dees got into the conversation with the remark: “A pretty woman never needs money! (Pretty woman never needs any money)». Then Orbison began to hum the phrase “Pretty woman walking down the street”, and Bill Dees began to beat the rhythm with his fist on the table. He vividly imagined a certain woman in a yellow skirt and red shoes, clicking her heels on the sidewalk. When Claudette returned with her purchases, the song was already ready. In a television interview, Orbison said that it took as long to compose the song as it sounds.
