Old 97s

Old 97s - Ray Charles

rate me

We put on Ray Charles and broke up

You were packed and gone when I woke up

Ray just kept on singing

He had Georgia on his mind

You just keep on leaving

You keep leaving all the time

Wonder if the stars will die tonight

Yeah I wonder if the cats(?) are gonna fight

There's no rest for the restless

So I doubt that you'll sleep well

I don't think that I will

My head's ringing like a bell

(Chorus)

Love is blind and I don't blame her

Cause lately I ain't been too much to see

I'd bring some girl home but then I'd have to pay her

Won't you come home with me Rosemary

When I walked in the bar you tried to hide

But I took my old place right by your side

You looked like a raccoon

With those circles round your eyes

If my offer is improper

Please come home with me tonight

Well I'll prick myself and see if blood comes out

I'll play until the whole damn tape runs out

I'll put on that Ray Charles record

If you'll make some drinks

Nothing is the matter

It don't matter what you think

(Chorus)

Love is blind and I don't blame her

Cause we all could use a little sympathy

I'd bring some girl home but then I'd have to pay her

Won't you come home with me Rosemary

(Repeat 1st chorus)
