Kinky Friedman – Western Union Wire lyrics

(kinky friedman)

From a cheap hotel in dallas
On a cold december day
A telegram was traveling on it's way
Like a sad old song from somewhere
In the distance of a dream
Flashing Ў®cross the darkness
On the telegraph machine.

It said, Ў°from billy, Ў± at the bottom, Ў°to baby, Ў± at the top
Western union wire Ўє Ў°please help meЎ± Ўє stop.
Western union wire Ўє Ў°don't leave me. Ў± Ўє stop.

Well, the taxicab it took her
To the airport in the dawn,
She knew in just an hour she'd be gone.
She was standing near the platform
Ў®bout to board the big pan am
When someone came
And put the lonely message in her hand.

It said, Ў°from billy, Ў± at the bottom, Ў°to baby, Ў± at the top
Western union wire Ўє Ў°please help meЎ± Ўє stop.
Western union wire Ўє Ў°don't leave me. Ў± Ўє stop.

Headin' high above chicago
Just a-reachin' for the skies
She found herself with teardrops in her eyes.
And a little boy beside her asked her,
Ў°mama, where is pop? Ў±
And she just broke down a-cryin'
Ў®cause she knew she couldn't stop.

It said, Ў°from billy, Ў± at the bottom, Ў°to baby, Ў± at the top
Western union wire Ўє Ў°don't leave me. Ў± Ўє stop.
Ў°ah, you said you'd always love me Ўє how could you? Ў± Ўє stop,
Ў°in pieces on the runway Ўє I love you. Ў± Ўє stop.
