I been out on the road a mighty long time
Couldn't wait to get back home and see that woman of mine
But when I finally got there, I found a letter instead
I picked it up and read it, and this is what it said-

Dear Son, I'm sorry baby, I'm movin' on
Dear Son, I'm sorry baby, I'm movin' on
Well I hope that you understand,
I found another man, dear Son.

Tried to figure out where she went, I didn't have a clue
She not only took her coffee cup, but she took her coffee too
The only thing that she left behind were written by her pen
I picked up that old sad note, and read those words again-

Dear Son, I'm sorry baby, I'm movin' on
Dear Son, I'm sorry baby, I'm movin' on
Well I hope that you understand,
I found another man, dear Son.

I thought that she was diff'rent, a little quiet, a little shy
'Til that day that she ran off and found another guy
I didn't know what I did to make her disappear
To leave my with this lousy note, crying in my beer-

Dear Son, I'm sorry baby, I'm movin' on
Dear Son, I'm sorry baby, I'm movin' on
Well I hope you understand,
I found another man, dear Son.

Now if you ever see her, make sure you treat her right
Don't always be trying to link, make sure that you're home at night
And don't ever let her catch you with Sally, Betty or Sue
'Cause you'll end with with a note, a note addressed to you

Dear Son, I'm sorry baby, I'm movin' on
Dear Son, I'm sorry baby, I'm movin' on
Well I hope that you understand,
That I found another man, dear Son.
