Silence on the Line  Chris LeDoux

[D]Took my last [G]fall in San Di[A]ego
[D]Bus headed [G]north one headed [A]south
[G]I call a [A]farm in Colo[D]rado
And I [G]lift a dusty pay phone to my [A]mouth
[D]She says [G]hello I say it's me [A]hon
[D]Sorry I [G]stayed away so [A]long
Tell the [G]kids thier old man's [A]through with playin' [D]rodeo
Cause if [G]it's alright with you I'm comin' [A]home
Well there's [D]silence on the line
She says you [D]sure did take your time
But I still need a man for the things a man is [A]good for
[Em]You know how it is raisin' [C]crops and raisin' kids
De[G]mands a man at [A]least as fit as you [D]are
[D]So come on git on home there's hay that needs a mowin'
A boy that needs a whippin' and a hundred things to [A]do
I hope you've [Em]finally found your mind
To leave that [C]rodeo behind
I've spent [G]half my life just [A]waitin' here for [D]you
[D]I guess that nows the [G]time I'd better [A]tell her
[D]Hon I've got this [G]old friend that's here with [A]me
He [G]used to be a [A]cowboy and a [D]good one [A]so they [G]say
But now his legs are crippled he can't [A]walk you see
[D]But hon you ought to [G]hear him tell his [A]stories
[D]Sing the old songs [G]play the guitar [A]too
I'd [G]really like to [A]show him Colo[D]rado
But I [G]thought I'd better leave it up to [A]you
Well there's [D]silence on the line
And now I [D]hear her sayin'
Babe I only need a man for the things a man is [A]good for
And [Em]you know how it is a [C]place just half this big
De[G]mands a man at [A]least as fit as [D]you are
[D]Put yourself in his place it'd awful hard to face
[D]All the chores and work and nothing he could [A]do
If you [Em]want to know my mind leave that [C]rodeo bum behind
Don't [G]waste our time I'm [A]waitin' here for [D]you
[D]Well cryin's just for [G]kids I put [A]down the phone
[D]Fumble with my [G]crutches movin' [A]slow
I [G]wish that I was [A]on the bus that's [D]Colo[A]rado [G]bound
[G]And I hope the weather's [A]nice in Mexi[D]co
