If You Need A Fool
   ------Steve Earle

Darlin', I could tell we're through
That leavin' look's all over you
I'll be waitin' here no matter what you do
Call me if you need a fool

Go and find another guy
And if he don't believe your lies
You know there's someone who'll swear every word is true
Call me if you need a fool

They're just not makin' fools the way that they used to
They don't come back for more the way I always do
So if you ever change your mind
I'm not very hard to find
You can find me in the phone book under "Blue"
Call me if you need a fool

They're just not makin' fools the way that they used to
They don't come back for more the way I always do
So if you ever change your mind
I'm not very hard to find
You can find me in the phone book under "Blue"
Call me if you need a fool
Call me if you need a fool

The following lines were written specially for the Del McCoury Band's 1992 recording of the song for their Blue Side of Time album... click here to read Steve's liner notes comments for the DMB album Cold Hard Facts concerning this...

Girl, it won't cost you a dime
To break my heart just one last time
Call collect and I'll just tell 'em "put her through"
Call me if you need a fool
