Written by Marty Stuart

You left without a sign or a warning
I'm still holding some questions in my mind
In case you might ask how I'm a doin'
Here's what I think you're gonna find

I'm tired of mopin'. Hopin', waiting on the telephone
I oughta know by now you ain't a gonna come back home
I'm goin' dancin', romancin', gonna love every girl in sight
I might worry tomorrow but I'll paint the town tonight

Well, I found me a honky tonk that loves me
And I'll close it down about daylight
'Cause me and my personal friends are a celebrating
And with every round you fade more out of sight

I'm tired of mopin'. Hopin', waiting on the telephone
I oughta know by now you ain't a gonna come back home
I'm goin' dancin', romancin', gonna love every girl in sight
I might worry tomorrow but I'll paint the town tonight
Yeah, I'm might worry tomorrow but I'll paint the town tonight
