You know I... baby, like the flowers love the rain
And I'd do anything... till the sun comes up again
I tried my best to tell you but the words don't do the trick
I guess you have to read my licks

When I... this morning I had a sweet dream on my mind
I tried to... honey but I couldn't get you on the line
So I wrote this note to send you the stamp it wouldn't stick
So I guess you'll have to read my licks

I let my fingers do the talking when my tongue gets tied
Darling when I see you walking I get... inside
You be my one and only is I only had my pick
And you'd see who much I... if you could read my licks

When I get her to the chapel I'm gonna have to bring my box
And when to preacher asks... just gonna have to let that guitar talk
But I tell her all my troubles after we get hitched
Till then she'll have to read my licks

But I tell her all my troubles after we get hitched
Till then she'll have to read my licks

And I'll tell you all my... after we get hitched
Till then you'll have to read my licks
