When my baby moved out and the blues moved in there wasn't nothing I could do
But mosey around with my head in my hands oh Lord what am I comin' to
I just keep moanin' moanin' the blues
I wrote a nice long letter sayin' mama please come home
Your daddy is lonesome and all I do is moan
I've been lovin' that gal for so doggone long I can't afford to lose her now
I thought I was right but I must have been wrong cause my head is startin' to bow
And now I'm moanin' moanin' the blues
[ steel - guitar ]
If you want a good gal to stay around you got to treat her nice and kind
If you do her wrong she'll leave this town and you'll almost lose your mind
Then you'll be moanin' moanin' the blues
Oh baby baby baby honey baby please come home
Your daddy is lonesome and all I do is moan
I promise you baby that I'll be good and I'll never be bad no more
Sittin' here waitin' for you right now to walk through that front door
Then I'll stop moanin' moanin' the blues then I'll stop moanin' moanin' the blues
