  • 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 meĀ
