Telegraph Road

Words and music copyright © Leon Chase 2006.

As performed on the album Drunk

 

Don’t you worry, baby
Don’t you act surprised
Don’t you shoot me, honey
Don’t you try and run and hide

Don’t you lock that kitchen door now, baby
Darling, don’t you disconnect the phone
I’m coming back, baby
Back to Telegraph Road

Well it’s been so long
and I been all across this land
Now it’s back to Detroit city,
to the place it all began

I’m gonna get myself a coney dog,
drink me down some Faygo and some Stroh’s
I’m coming back, baby
Back to Telegraph Road

Well I keep on living any way I can
Walked a country mile with this guitar in my hand
Well I do my best to keep this old heart true
and I don’t start fights, but I finished one or two

So don’t you hurt me, baby
don’t you scream or cry
You say you don’t need nothing
but I see your hungry eyes

So be careful what you wish for
Girl, you’re gonna reap just what you sow
I’m coming back, baby
Back to Telegraph Road

Now don’t you curse me, baby
Don’t you mess around
I know you thought that it was over,
but guess who’s back in town

And I don’t care about no boyfriend
Don’t tell me girl, ’cause I don’t want to know
I’m coming back, baby
Back to Telegraph Road

Well I keep on finding trouble all the time
Did my stint out on the Wayne County line
I contracted me a case of them Downriver blues
Now I got nothing left to live for, babe, I got nothing left to lose

Well I sold my soul up ’75,
played my heart out for nickels and dimes,
got down on my knees just to save my sins
I drove 2000 miles just to taste you again

You better put on your best dress now, baby
Wash behind your ears, ’cause Daddy’s home
I’m coming back, baby
I’m coming back, baby
I’m coming back, baby
