DON'T EVEN CHANGE A PICTURE ON THE WALL (Lee Morse) Lee Morse - 1950 The home folks heard from Joe the other day Seems like he will soon be on his way He decided to return, no more to roam Here's that lonesome boy's letter home, a-home Don't even change a picture on the wall Wish you wouldn't change a thing at all Although you're all so far away from me I wanna picture you the way you used to be Just have old Rover meet me at the gate, please Have Mom be there to scold me if I'm late Keep the candle in the window burnin' bright Till your lonesome, lovin' Joe comes home some night Don't even change a picture on the wall Keep my old sweater hangin' in the hall Have my old blue suit pressed while I'm away 'Cause I'll be datin' my old girl the same old way Don't have the whole gang meet me at the train Just have my sweetheart swingin' down the lane Her kiss will make the whole world seem alright When your lonesome, lovin' Joe comes home some night (Instrumental Break) Don't even change a picture on the wall Just remember I'm your little boy grown tall Although I've wandered almost ev'rywhere I've always pictured you home in your favourite chair Have chicken ev'ry Sunday, mighty fine And I'll take lots o' gravy along with mine Tell my sweetheart to be true and just hold tight, hold tight, hold tight Till your lonesome, lovin' Joe comes home some night (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - January 2013)
