Recorded by Bobby Bare
Written by Tom T. Hall
[C]I guess I should have written dad to let you know that I was coming home [C7]
[F]But I’ve been gone so many years I didn’t realize you had a phone
I [C]saw your cattle coming in and boy they’re looking mighty fat and slick [C7]
I [F]saw Fred at the service station he [G7]told me that his wife was awful [C]sick
You heard my record on the radio oh well it’s just another song [C7]
[F]But I’ve got a hit recorded dad it’ll be out on the market ‘fore too long
Oh [C]I got this ring in Mexico you know it didn’t cost me quite a bunch[C7]
When [F]you’re in the business that I’m in the [G7]people call it putting up a [C]front
I know I’ve lost a little weight and I guess I’m a looking kinda pale [C7]
[F]If you didn’t know me better Dad you’d think that I’ve just gotten out of jail
No [C]we don’t ever call ’em beer joints night clubs are the places where I work [C7]
You [F]meet a lotta people there but [G7]no there ain’t much chance of getting [C]hurt
I’m sorry that I couldn’t be here with you all when momma passed away [C7]
[F]I was on the road and when they came and told me it was just too late
I [C]drove by the grave to see her and boy that really is a pretty stone [C7]
I’m [F]glad that Fred and Jan are here it’s [G7]better than you being here [C]alone
I knew you’s gonna ask me who the lady is who’s sleeping in the car [C7]
[F]That’s just the girl that works for me and man she plays a pretty mean guitar
We [C]worked in San Antone last night she didn’t even have the time to dress[C7]
She [C]drove me in from Nashville and to tell the [G7]truth I guess she needs the [C]rest
Well dad I gotta go we got a dance to work in Cartersville tonight[C7]
[F]Let me take your number down I’ll call you and I promise you I’ll write
Now [C]you be good and don’t be chasing all those pretty women that you know [C7]
And [C]by the way if you see Barbara [G7]Walker tell her that I said [C]hello[/chordpress]
