The Statler Brothers Don’t Wait On Me Lyrics

Last updated: 06/05/2007 12:00:00 PM

When the sun wakes up in the west, and lays its head down in the east;
When they ordain Madelyn O’Hare, and she becomes a priest;
When a San Diego sailor comes home with no tattoo;
When the lights go on at Wrigley Field I’ll be coming home to you!

But, don’t wait on me, Little Darlin’;
Lord, can’t you see, Little Darlin’;
I only go so far, then
No guarantee!
Don’t wait on me to win you.
That’s something 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 sheds a tear;
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 sliding home from first!


When you load up on a long-shot, and he wins by half a nose;
When the Fourth of July parade is called because of snow;
When the waiting room is empty, and the doc says “Come right in!”;
When Christmas comes before New Years, I’ll be coming home again!


Don’t wait on me! Don’t wait on me! Don’t wait on me! Don’t wait on me!
