Josh Ritter – Real Long Distance lyrics

You're a real mean mama but you got a lot of time for me
And I know it ain't common to find your kinda love for free
It's a drag and a sigh and that's not all I'm calling real long distance
It's a real long distance call

Telephone ringing mama please don't you leave it alone
Don't leave no breaks in the line it's the only thing that's tied to home
It's a drag and a sigh and that's not all
This is real long distance it's a real long distance call
