Roy Clark – Where Are You Tonight? lyrics

Where, oh where, are you tonight?
Why did you leave me here all alone?
I searched the world over and I thought I'd found true love.
But you met another and pthhp! You was gone.

You took out your false teeth, your wig and your glasses.
You were just scattered all over the place.
I wanted to kiss you and hug you so tightly.
I guess that I would have if I'd found your face.

I went to your house at three in the morning.
You had all them curlers and junk in your hair.
You would not have scared me and I'd not have run so,
If you had not looked like you'd wrestled a bear.

I told you, my darlin', you looked like a gopher.
Made you so mad, you haven't spoke since.
But tell me my darling if you ain't got buck teeth.
How do you eat apples through a picket fence?

When I picked you up for our date last weekend.
You looked so pretty in your satin and lace.
But when I bent over and started to kiss you,
You popped a pimple all over my face!

    Actually, most of these lyrics, while possible verses, are not the most used ones on "Official" versions, the song itself has over 50 known possible verses, most of them contributed by its heavy use on the show "Hee Haw" due to how much they used said song. In fact, most of the verses here are not even the best ones, to anyone who want to sing or simply read the whole song I would recommend doing a quick google search, you'll find more, in a better structure and with actual tabs for guitar if you need them, the most well known version of the song was made by Buck Owen, on the Hee Haw show, it was most often sung by Archie Campbell, often with invited guests.
