Written and recorded by hank williams (sr.)

Capo on 1st fret.
[d] well, youre just in time to be too late
I tried to but I couldnt wait
And [a] now I ve got another date
So I wont be home no [d] more
Youre just in time to miss the boat
So dont take off your hat and coat
[a] be on your way, thats all she wrote
cause I wont be home no [d] more.

1st bridge

I [g] stood around a month or two
And waited for your call
Now [d] I m too busy pitchin woo
So come around next [a] fall
I [d] scratched your name right off my slate
And hung a sign on my front gate
Youre [a] just in time to be too late
And I wont be home no [d] more.

Well, youre just in time to turn around
And drive your buggy back to town
You looked me up I turned you down
And I wont be home no more
Youre just in time to change your tune
Go tell your troubles to the moon
And call around next may or june
cause I wont be home no more.

2nd bridge

I used to be the patient kind
Believed each alibi
But thats all done, I ve changed my mind
I ve got new fish to fry
Well, youre just in time to celebrate
The things you didnt calculate
Youre just in time to be too late
And I wont be home no more.
