HOMECOMING (Tom T. Hall) Bobby Bare - 1969 Tom T. Hall - 1969 The Country Ramblers - 1969 David Houston - 1969 Cal Smith - 1970 Don Bowman - 1972 Doug Sahm - 1973 Joe Henry - 1998 I guess I should've written, Dad To let you know that I was comin' home I've been gone so many years I didn't realize you had a phone I saw your cattle comin' in Boy they're lookin' mighty fat and slick I saw Fred at the service station Told me that his wife was awful sick You heard my record on the radio Oh, well it's just another song But I've got a hit recorded And it'll be out on the market 'fore too long I got this ring in Mexico, and no It didn't cost me quite a bunch When you're in the business that I'm in People call it puttin' up a front I know I've lost a little weight I guess I am looking kind of pale If you didn't know me better, Dad You'd think that I'd just gotten out of jail No, we don't ever call them beer joints Nightclubs are the places where I work You meet a lot of people there But no, there ain't no chance o' gettin' hurt I'm sorry that I couldn't be here with you all When Mom passed away I was on the road and when they came And told me it was just too late I drove by the grave to see her Boy, that really is a pretty stone I'm glad that Fred and Jan are here It's better than you bein' here alone Well I knew you's gonna ask me Who the lady is that's sleepin' in the car That's just a girl who works for me And, man, she plays a pretty mean guitar We worked in San Antone last night She didn't even have the time to dress She drove me down from Nashville And to tell the truth, I guess she needs the rest Well, Dad, I gotta go We got a dance to work in Cartersville tonight Let me take your number down I'll call you, and I promise you I'll write Now you be good and don't be chasin' All those pretty women that you know And by the way if you see Barbara Walker Tell her that I said "Hello" (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - June 2012)
