IF I'D ONLY COME AND GONE (Shel Silverstein) Dr. Hook & The Medicine Show - 1972 Tompall Glaser - 1972 Earl Scruggs - 1973 If I'd only come and gone The way I'd always done With summer girls before Shared one night with you And never reached for more Then we wouldn't face this long And painful righting of the wrong If I'd only come and gone If I hadn't stayed so long But merely parked my dusty boots Outside your door Tracked no footprints 'cross Your polished hardwood floor I'd have left you in your doorway Smilin' drowsy at the dawn If I'd only come and gone And I'd be on a shinin' silver plane Dippin' into Denver Or on a schooner blowin' down To Biscayne Bay And you'd be safely tucked away Among the pleasure I'd remember 'Stead of lyin' here beside me Fearin' restless thoughts inside me That might awaken with the breakin' Of each new day If you'd only stopped to read Cold hard words I carved On other bedroom walls And heard the mornin' coffee truths I told 'em all I'd still be on your lips Like some unfinished Half-remembered song You'd have never loved me If I'd only come and gone (Contributed by Mel - July 2004)
