I guess I should have written dad to let you know that I was coming home

But I've been gone so many years I didn't realize you had a phone

  C                                                                       C7
I saw your cattle coming in and boy they're looking mighty fat and slick

I saw Fred at the service station he told me that his wife was awful sick

You heard my record on the radio oh well it's just another song

But I've got a hit recorded dad it'll be out on the market 'fore too long

   C                                                                 C7

When you're in the business that I'm in the people call it putting up a front

I know I've lost a little weight and I guess I'm a looking kinda pale

If you didn't know me better Dad you'd think that I've just gotten out of jail

   C                                                                          C7

You meet a lotta people there but no there ain't much chance of getting hurt

I'm sorry that I couldn't be here with you all when momma passed away

I was on the road and when they came and told me it was just too late

  C                                                                   C7

I'm glad that Fred and Jan are here it's better than you being here alone

I knew you's gonna ask me who the lady is who's sleeping in the car

That's just the girl that works for me and man she plays a pretty mean guitar

   C                                                                     C7
We worked in San Antone last night she didn't even have the time to dress

    C                                          G7                          C
She drove me in from Nashville and to tell the truth I guess she needs the rest

Well dad I gotta go we got a dance to work in Cartersville tonight

Let me take your number down I'll call you and I promise you I'll write

    C                                                                     C7

And by the way if you see Barbara Walker tell her that I said hello
