Kyle Evans – Silence On The Line lyrics

Took my last fall in San Diego
Bus headed north one headed south
I called the farm in Colorado
And I lift a dusty pay phone to my mouth
She says hello I say it's me hon
Sorry I stayed away so long
Tell the kids thier old man's through with rodeoin'
And if it's alright with you I'm comin' home

Well there's silence on the line
And now I hear her sayin'
I only need a man for the things a man is good for
You know how it is raisin' crops and raisin' kids
Demands a man at least as fit as you are
So come on get on home there's hay that needs a mowin'
A boy that needs a whippin' and a hundred things to do
I'm glad you finally found your mind
Leave the rodeo behind
Don't waste you time I'm waitin' here for you

I guess that now I'd better tell her
Hon I've got this friend that's here with me
He used to be a cowboy and a good one so they say
But now his legs are crippled he can't walk you see
But hon you ought to hear him tell his stories
Sing the old songs play the guitar too
And I'd really like to show him Colorado
But I thought I'd better leave it up to you

Well there's silence on the line
And now I hear her sayin'
I only need a man for the things a man is good for
And you know how it is a place just half this big
Demands a man at least as fit as you are
Put yourself in his place it'd awful hard to face
All the chores and work and nothing he could do
If you want to know my mind leave that rodeo bum behind
Don't waste your time I'm waitin' here for you

Well cryin's just for kids I put down the phone
Fumble with my crutches movin' slow
I wish that I was on the bus that's Colorado bound
And I hope the weather's nice in Mexico
