HER AND THE CAR AND THE MOBILE HOME (Dave Kirby / Don Stock) Porter Wagoner & Dolly Parton - 1971 PORTER: Well, my wife and I were happy in our trailer But she didn't dig my runnin' around all night DOLLY: Well I warned you a couple o' times of leavin' Oh, but you just laughed and took it kinda light PORTER: Well I should've paid attention to her warnin' When she told me she'd leave if I didn't change 'Cause when I come home about sunup this mornin' Well I detected somethin' mighty strange PORTER: Her and the car and the mobile home are gone, boys DOLLY: I was takin' off while you was a-carryin' on PORTER: Now things are really shot, I came home to an empty lot DOLLY: Yeah, me and the car and the mobile home's gone PORTER: Yes, her and the car and the mobile home was gone DOLLY: Umm-hmm, hmm-hmm-hmm, hmm-hmm-hmm-hmm PORTER: Well the neighbours all around me were a-laughin' And it made me feel about ten inches tall DOLLY: Ha-ha, I knew you didn't think that I'd really leave you Uh, not to mention takin' home and all Why, talk about somebody bewildered I bet you didn't know what to do, nor where to go PORTER: I found little consolation in my wardrobe That you left scattered on the patio PORTER: Her and the car and the mobile home are gone, boys DOLLY: I was takin' off while you was a-carryin' on PORTER: Now things are really shot, I came home to an empty lot DOLLY: Yeah, me and the car and the mobile home's gone, gone PORTER: Yes, her and the car and the mobile home was gone DOLLY: Umm-hmm, hmm-hmm-hmm, hmm-hmm-hmm-hmm PORTER (Spoken): Yeah, they was gone with everything else, except a few old western suits she'd left scattered there on the patio. And they had mud on 'em where she'd stomped around on 'em. Footstepped on them wagon wheels, busted the spokes out. You know that real nice lavender suit, the one that she said I looked good in, looked like Tom Jones..... that's it hangin' over in that tree. She took that piece of chalk wrote across the front of the coat, "Have a good time, darling! You know when you're hot, you're hot" (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - April 2011)
