Stop all this talk, turn off the telephone
Let it get real quiet, turn that lamp way down low

Even now that he's gone he can make a woman cry
He knew his way down this river of tears
"Dashed hopes and best intentions" people say
So grab that silver flask, pour yourself another glass and

Watch the clouds cover that big yellow moon
There's nowhere left to run
Picked up that old decanter that he used to drink from
Daddy I'm gonna wrap myself in blankets and listen to you sing
