I ain't gonna sing no lonesome tune
Ah, babe, I'm a comin' soon
I cannot believe I stayed so long away
But a man must look around
You're the sweetest thing I've found
All your lost high roller's rollin' home today

Well, my Daddy said to me
"Son, it's hard as you will see
To find someone upon whom to rely
In the kitchen, Mama sneezed
And he grinned big as you please
Said, "Bless you" and a tear come to his eye

I did decide that very day
That I would like to live that way
And now I know I just been wastin' time
It's with you that I should be
If you feel the same 'bout me
Well I'm headed home along the straightest line

I ain't gonna sing no lonesome tune
Ah, babe, I'm a comin' soon
I cannot believe I stayed so long away
But a man must look around
You're the sweetest thing I've found
All your lost high roller's rollin' home today
