The Key's in the Mailbox
recorded by Buck Owens
written by Harlan Howard

C                                  G7
Oh jealous me and careless you the odds were just too great
I couldn't take those lonely nights you made me sit and wait
I thought I'd seen the last of you when you walked out of sight
Instead I see you in my dreams each night
So the key's in the mailbox come on in
    G7                                        C
I'm sitting here wishing dear I had your love again
I'll never even ask you where you've been
    G7                           C
The key's in the mailbox come on in
I said I'd rather be alone than share your company
I said don't come around at all if you want more than me
But sitting here alone I can't deny the flame that burns
I'd gladly take you back on any terms
repeat #2
