When The Wild Life Betrays Me
   ------Jimmy Buffett

When The Wild Life Betrays Me
By: Jimmy Buffett, Michael Utley, Will Jennings
1984
Can't believe I'm still here
With the morning so near
And last night so unclear

I see a tremblin' hand
And a gold wedding band
Wonder where do I stand

When the wild life betrays me
And I'm too far from home
Will you be there to save me
Will you shelter my heart 'til I'm strong
Or will you just hang up the phone

All my crazy old lies
And my worn out disguise
Turns to tears in your eyes

What a fool I have been
There's no way I can win
Unless you take me back in

When the wild life betrays me
And I'm too far from home
Will you be there to save me
Will you shelter my heart 'til I'm strong
Or will you just hang up the phone

(instrumental)

When the wild life betrays me
And I'm too far from home
Will you be there to save me
Will you shelter my heart till I'm strong
Or will you just hang up the phone
