1st Verse
Well, In the morning when you rise
Lord I look into your eyes
Somethin' tells me somethin's not the same
The TV plays all day
And we don't have much to say
Frankly's drivin' me insane!

It's gonna be a cold and lonesome life, when you're gone
Drinkin' coffee...feelin' small
It's gonna be a cold and lonesome life when you're gone
Countin' sunsets by the shadows on the wall

2nd Verse
Now, you're reachin' for the phone
And you want to be alone
I know you're callin' someone I don't know
It wasn't long ago
That I heard your sweet hello
While another man prepared to let you go......

Chorus repeat.........
1st Verse repeat......

A Lovable and uplifting Country! Well constructed and delivered. Good use of instrumention. Pro production

Really enjoyed the trad. country feel, conversational, lighthearted lyrics, great vocals and of course the instrumentation, all stellar. Nice licks - dobro? Great stuff.

No comment

Lyrics were good (nice story), solo was nice and instrumentation was very good.

I enjoyed th short pauses before guitarwork...good touch. Instrumentation all on track. This has a vintage feel to it. From my point of view that is good. Nice variety in back up instruments.

like the easy laid back spirit of this tune. nice dobro pal! this man has been around the blocks a few times at least!
nice mix, like the steady simple drums
