Why You Been Gone So Long? (Perkins Carl)

Every time it rains, baby, I run to my window And all I do is rain my hands and moan I listen to that thunder roll Can't you hear that lonesome wind moan? Tell me, baby, why you been gone so long? Tell me, baby, why you been gone so long? You been gone so long, girl Tell me, baby, why you been gone so long? Wolves are scratchin' at my door And I can hear that lonesome wind moan Tell me baby, why you been gone so long? Someone said they thought, they saw You roarin' down in Reno With a big old dude from San Antone They asked me, I'm a fool for you And I guess I am, what do they know? Tell me, baby, why you been gone so long? Tell me, baby, why you been gone so long? You been gone so long, girl Tell me, baby, why you been gone so long? Wolves are scratchin' at my door And I can hear that lonesome wind moan Tell me, baby, why you been gone so long? Yeah There ain't nothing I would not do, oh yeah I guess, I'd get stoned And let the past paint pictures in my head Kill a fifth of a thunderbird And then try to write a sad song And tell me, baby, why you been gone so long? Tell me, baby, why you been gone so long? You been gone so long, girl Tell me, baby, why you been gone so long? Wolves are scratchin' at my door And I can hear that lonesome wind moan Tell me, baby, why you been gone so long? Come on, baby Tell me baby, baby, why you been gone so long?
