The Phone Call
Recorded by Mickey Gilley with Charly McClain
Written by Even Stevens and Billy Joe Walker

Oh I've been driving all night long

And I'm finally in her town
C G7 C
Pulling off the freeway looking for a telephone
As I dial the number from a booth outside I call
C G7 C
Thinking about the last time when I held her in my arms
A#7 F Am
Said hello then ask can I see you tonight
G# A#7 G7
Then there was only silence on the line
Then she said

Oh I'd really like to see you again

It's getting late and I'm expecting a friend
And after all it just wouldn't be right

I think it's better that we say goodnight
And I hung up the phone

The last time you came though this town

You built me up then you let me down
And I'm being careful with this heart of mine
I've been getting along just fine without you

Oh baby before you go won't you please let me explain
C G7
I've changed a lot since way back then
I'm a different kind of man
It took awhile but now I know that I left the best behind
C G7 C
And I don't wanna sleep alone in some hotel room tonight
A#7 F
But no matter what I said her voice was cold as ice
G# G7
Even begged her to give me one last try
But she said

Repeat #2

G7 C
Then she said
I'm really sorry but I really have to go
