Every time it rains Lord
I run to my window
All I do is hang my head and moan
I listen to that thunder roll
And hear lonesome wind moan
Tell me baby why you been gone so long

Tell me baby why you been gone so long
Ya been gone so long
Tell me baby why you been gone so long
The wolf is scratchin’ at my door
And I can hear that lonesome wind moan
Tell me baby why you been gone so long

Somebody said they say you roaring down in Reno
With a big ol’ man from San Antone
They say that I’m a fool to pine for you
But what do they know
Tell me baby why you been gone so long

Tell me baby why you been gone so long
Ya been gone so long
Tell me baby why you been gone so long
The wolf is scratchin’ at my door
And I can hear that lonesome wind moan
Tell me baby why you been gone so long

Lord there ain’t a thing to do well I guess I’ll go get stoned
Let the past paint pictures on my head
Drink a fifth of Thunderbird
And smoke my way back home
Tell me baby why you been gone so long

Tell me baby why you been gone so long
Ya been gone so long
Tell me baby why you been gone so long
The wolf is scratchin’ at my door
And I can hear that lonesome wind moan
Tell me baby why you been gone so long
