Call Letter Blues

Well, I walked all night long

Listenin' to them church bells tone

Yes, I walked all night long

Listenin' to them church bells tone

Either someone needing mercy

Or maybe something I've done wrong

.

Well, your friends come by for you

I don't know what to say

Well, your friends come by for you

I don't know what to say

I just can't face up to tell 'em

Honey, you just went away

.

Well, children cry for mother

I tell them, "Mother took a trip"

Well, children cry for mother

I tell them, "Mother took a trip"

Well, I walk on pins and needles

I hope my tongue don't slip

.

Well, I gaze at passing strangers

In case I might see you

Yes, I gaze at passing strangers

In case I might see you

But the sun goes around the heavens

And another day just drives on through

.

Way out in the distance

I know you're with some other man

Way out in the distance

I know you're with some other man

But that's alright, baby

You know I always understand

.

Call girls in the doorway

All giving me the eye

Call girls in the doorway

All giving me the eye

But my heart's just not in it

I might as well pass right on by

.

My ears are ringin'

Ringin' like empty shells

My ears are ringin'

Ringin' like empty shells

Well, it can't be no guitar player

It must be convent bells

.
