Loretta Lynn – As Soon As I Hang Up The Phone lyrics

(Hello Loretta)
Darlin' I knew it was you
(Loretta there's something I just got to tell you)
Oh, please tell me what to do
(I don't really know how to say this but I want to tell you that I)
You gave me the will to go on
As soon as I picked up the phone
(No, no, you don't understand Loretta I'm trying to tell you that I)

The talk is around that we're through
(Yeah, I know I've heard it too)
Oh, darling, tell me what to do
(But that's just it, that's what I'm trying to tell you I wanna tell you that)
I knew you'd tell me they were wrong
As soon as I picked up the phone
(Oh, but it is true, they're not wrong)

Oh, no
(I'm sorry Loretta)
Oh, no, I can't believe that it's true
(I'm sorry Loretta, I'm really, really sorry)
Oh, no, oh, no, I can't believe that we're through
(I know you know that I, I never thought it would come to this)

You tell me it's over and done
(I really thought that I loved you and you know that)
You say that you've had all your fun
(You've just got to believe me that I never meant to hurt you)
But I can't believe you've been gone
(This is the hardest thing that I've ever had to do and it hurts me too)
As soon as I hang up the phone
(Yeah, I'll be gone)
As soon as I hang up the phone
(Goodbye Loretta)
