I Should Have Been Home
Lyrics and music by Blaze Foley

Saw a dancing young lady who worked in the bar
A dozen known rangers don't know who they are
The waitress was spinning my head was ajar
And I should have been home with you

Saw a reeling old drunk man dancing around
He thought his gray whiskers still must've been brown
And Ida Lupino wouldn't keep her dress down
And I should have been home with you

The band rocked and rolled but it wasn't the best
Nearly all of em all sound like the rest
Some girls look pretty but you were the best
And thats why I came home to you

Got home around daylight I'd been gone too long
Woke up at eleven and I saw you were gone
So I drank lots of coffee and I wrote you this song
I wish I'd been home with you
