Linda Ronstadt

Linda Ronstadt - In My Reply

rate me

Now Matthew was a country boy until one day he found

That cheatin' folks was easier than plowin' his daddy's ground

He left his home back in Ohio, bound for Chicago's town

He crossed Big Jim and turned his back

A bullet cut him down

And as he lay there dying

He said "Will I see my Ohio?"

In my reply I lied a bit

And said I did not know

Now Jim McCall he was meek and small

And to become a man

He'd have to build himself up tall

With fancy folks and land

He threw some stones at honest friends

And he got himself these things

His children left him and he sneered

"That's what my kindness brings"

And on the south side he got lost

He asked me where to go

In my reply I lied a bit

And said I did not know

Yes Miss Lazy Susan called me up

She heard I stole the show

In my reply I lied a bit

And said I did not know

In my reply I lied a bit and said I did not know
