Tony Rice – Why You Been Gone So Long lyrics

Every time it rains Lord I run to my window
All I do is just wring my hands and moan
And listen to that thunder, Lord
Can't you hear that lonesome wind moan?
Tell me baby now why you've been gone so long?

Tell me baby now why you've been gone so long?
You've been gone so long now
Tell me baby now why you've been gone so long?
A wolf is scratching at my door, Lord, Lord
And I can hear that lonesome wind moan
Tell me baby now why you've been gone so long?

Somebody said they thought they saw you roaring down in Reno
With a big ol' man from San Anton
They tell me I'm a fool, fine for you but what do they know?
Tell me baby now why you've been gone so long?

Tell me baby now why you've been gone so long?
You've been gone so long now
Tell me baby now why you've been gone so long?
A wolf is scratching at my door, Lord, Lord
And I can hear that lonesome wind moan
Tell me baby now why you've been gone so long?

Ain't nothin' I wanna do Lord, so I guess I could get stoned
And let the past paint pictures in my head
And kill a fifth of a thunderbird Lord and try to write a sad, sad song
Tell me baby now why you've been gone so long?

Tell me baby now why you've been gone so long?
You've been gone so long now
Tell me baby now why you've been gone so long?
A wolf is scratching at my door, Lord, Lord
And I can hear that lonesome wind moan
Tell me baby now why you've been gone so long?
Tell me baby now why you've been gone so long?

    This song was written by Mickey Newbury. Please give credit where credit is due. Do I really have to fill the box with words until it says "Awesome" in order to get you to acknowledge a great songwriter? Something tells me you folks have way too much time on your hands.
