LISTEN BETTY (I'M SINGING YOUR SONG) (Tom T. Hall) Dave Dudley - 1970 A friend and I made one short run to Knoxville one day We got the apple pie and coffee hungries on the way We pulled into a little truckstop just outside o' town Pretty soon the waitress came around She said my name is Betty and I'd know you anywhere I'd like to have a minute of your time if you don't care Would you sing a song about me and the waitresses you've met About the broken promises we get Now listen, Betty, I'm singin' your song About the drivers that have done you wrong All I wanna do is lay the blame where it belongs A-listen, Betty, I'm singin' your song There's a broken heart for ev'ry truckstop on the right There's a lonesome driver for each passing set of lights Now I can't tell you how to love or tell you how to live All I can do is tell it like it is There's a million waitresses all up and down the line I've seen some that were laughin' and I've seen some that were cryin' I've left some that were happy and I've left some that were blue If you're a waitress, here's a song for you Now listen, Betty, I'm singin' your song About the drivers that have done you wrong All I wanna do is lay the blame where it belongs A-listen, Betty, I'm singin' your song The highway is a part of hell that never caught on fire A driver is the kind o' man the devil wouldn't hire That's what you're sayin', Betty, but if you can't stand the heat Quit that job and let those drivers be Now listen, Betty, I'm singin' your song About the drivers that have done you wrong All I wanna do is lay the blame where it belongs A-listen, Betty, I'm singin' your song Now listen, Betty, I'm singin' your song About the drivers that have..........FADE (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - Sept 2010)
