Halfway Home Café
Recorded by Ricky Skaggs
Written Paul Overstreet and John Barrarco

C G7
I was pouring coffee for table number one
Am C F
I couldn't help but hear him what was going on
C G7
It got my attention when I heard a young man's voice
Am G7 F
Saying sheriff I'll be going now if it’s alright with you boys
G7 Am
Those years I spent in prison stole too much time from me
F C Dm G7
I won't waste another minute if I'm really free

F C
I'm goin' home my family's waiting for me at home

I'm amazed that they still love me
Am G7 F G7
They forgive me for the bitter seeds I've sown
Am G7 F
Heaven knows I've been away too long
G7 C
So now I'm going home

G7
A burger and a special for table number eight
Am C F
I was busing number seven when I heard her young heart break
C G7
He told her it was over they could never meet again
Am G7 F
That he found a taste of courage twisted on his wedding band
G7 Am
Her tears began to fall but they could not touch his heart
F C Dm G7
I heard him say I'm sorry but it was all wrong from the start

Repeat #2

G7 Am
There's a million other stories from the Halfway Home Cafe
G7 F G7
It's a never ending saga and they're played out every day
C G7
But this one's finally over the foods all put away
Am C F
And the coffee pot stands empty at the Halfway Home Cafe
C G7
But over in the corner at table number three
Am G7 F
Sits a father and a runaway well it looks that way to me
G7 Am
I said I hate to interrupt you but it’s really getting late
F C Dm G7
The young girl looked up smiling she said mister that's ok

Repeat #2
