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
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
