Well I was out a drinking with a couple of friends of mine
When the bartender handed me the telephone and said there's your wife on the line
Well I told her I was just a drinking with the couple of buddies I knew
But she told me in a few short words just what she wanted me to do

She said won't you come home and talk to a stranger
You might even make yourself a friend
She said won't you come home and talk to a stranger
It's the only place in days you haven't been
[ guitar ]
Well I sat there about an hour just a talkin' with the rest of the guys
And when she walked through that front door she had gethome in her eyes
She said you've talked to danced with every woman in town but me
And if you just come around you might like my company
She said won't you come home...
It's the only place in days you haven't been
