If I Don't Be There By Morning lyrics

Blue sky upon the horizon
Private eye is on my trail
And if I don't be there by mornin'
You know that I must have spent the night in jail

I've been runnin' from Memphis to L.A.
Had an appointment set sometime for today
And if I don't be there by mornin'
You know that I must have gone the other way

Findin' my way back to you girl
Lonely and blue and mistreated too
Sometimes I think of you girl
Is it true that you think of me too?

I got a woman livin' in L.A.
I got a woman waitin' for my pay
And if I don't be there by mornin'
Pack my clothes, get down on your knees and pray

Findin' my way back to you girl
Lonely and blue and mistreated too
Sometimes I think of you girl
Is it true that you think of me too?

I left my woman with a twenty dollar bill
I left her waitin', I hope she's waitin' for me still
And if I don't be there by mornin'
You know that I, I never will
