DON'T WAIT ON ME
The Statler Brothers


When the sun wakes up in the west, and lays it's head down in the east

When they ordain Madlyn O'hare and she becomes a priest

When a San Diego sailor, comes home with no tatto

When the lights go on at Wrigley Field , I'll be comin' home to you


But don't wait on me (little darlin'), Lord can't you see (little darlin')

I only go (no farther), No guarantee

Don't wait on me (And when you), That's somethin' I (Just can't do)

Never have and don't (Intend to), Don't wait on me


When the wind don't blow in Chicago, and L.A. is cold and clear

When they unfurl Old Glory, and no one stands to cheer

When my brother in law phones me, and the charges aren't reversed

When the cabbie don't want a bigger tip, I'll be slidin' home from first


So don't wait on me (little darlin'), Lord can't you see (little darlin')

I only go (no farther), No guarantee

Don't wait on me (And when you), That's somethin' I (Just can't do)

Never have and don't (Intend to), Don't wait on me


When you load up on a long shot, and you win by half a nose

When the Fourth of July parade, is called because it snows

When the waiting room is empty, and the Doc says,"come right in"

When Christmas comes before New Years, I'll be commin' home again


But don't wait on me (little darlin'), Lord can't you see (little darlin')

I only go (no farther), No guarantee

Don't wait on me (And when you), That's somethin' I (Just can't do)

Never have and don't (Intend to), Don't wait on me


Don't wait on me, Don't wait on me, Don't wait on me, Don't wait on me'


THE STATLER BROTHERS

The Statler Brothers were an American country music vocal group founded in 1955 in Staunton, Virginia.

Originally performing gospel music at local churches, the group billed themselves as The Four Star Quartet, and later The Kingsmen. In 1963, when the song "Louie, Louie" by the garage rock band also called The Kingsmen became famous, the group elected to bill themselves as The Statler Brothers. Despite the name, only two members of the group (Don and Harold Reid) are actual brothers and none have the surname of "Statler". ... Read More
