I'll Get Back to You

Backporch Blues

Story

Hit the road with this great driving song.

Ballsy rockabilly blues with some nasty sax.
I challenge you to sit this one out.

---- 1st Verse----

I should have seen the writing on the wall

You don't pick up the phone now when I call

I hear a voice, it says "Hello, I'm sorry, but I'm not at home

Just leave your name and number, and I'll get back to you

 

---- 2nd Verse----

I know I stayed away a bit too long.

But did you have to go and throw my stuff out on the lawn?

My key won't work in my own door

I guess I don't live here no more

It's "leave your name and number, and I'll get back to you"

 

---- Chorus----

I stood out in the pouring rain: I stood outside and I called in vain

But it's "leave your name and number, and I'll get back to you"

 

---break---

 

---- 3rd Verse----

I wish you hadn't smashed my new guitar

I never thought you'd take things quite that far.

You know I'd make it up to you, if I could just get through

But it's "leave your name and number, and I'll get back to you"

 

---- 4th Verse----

Well now he's looking for someplace to stay

and all his old friends seem to be away

that's odd, eh John?

'Cause every time I call

ha ha

The writing's on the wall

you know it

It's "leave your name and number, and I'll get back to you"

 

---- Chorus----

I stood out in the pouring rain: I stood outside and I called in vain

But it's "leave your name and number, and I'll get back to you"

You know I'd make it up to you, if I could just get through

But it's

"leave your name and number"

"leave your name and number"

"leave your name and number"

"and I'll get back to you"
