Why You Been Gone So Long

print

Well every time it rains Lord I run to my window
All I do is ring my hands and mourn
Well listen to that thunder roar
Can’t you hear that lonesome wind moan
Tell me baby now why you been gone so long

   Tell me baby now why you been gone so long
    You been gone so long now
   Tell me baby now why you been gone so long
   Wolfs scratchin at my door lord Lord
   I can hear that lonesome wind blow
   Tell me baby now why you been gone so long

Well someone said they thought they saw you rollin down in Reno
With a big ol man from San Antone
They tell me I’m a fool to pine for you oh what do they know
Tell me baby now why you been gone so long

Ain’t nothin I want to do lord
So I guess I could get stoned
And let the past paint pictures in my head
Drink a fifth of thunderbird and try to write a sad sad song
Tell my baby now why you been gone so long
