Hurry Home

  • He's been sitting by the phone since she left
    But it's time for work and he just can't be late
    So he grabs his old guitar
    And he plays a couple bars on the machine
    And then he softly sings

    [Chorus:]
    It doesn't matter what you've done, I still love you
    It doesn't matter where you've been, you can still come home
    And honey if it's you, we've got a lot of making up to do
    And I can't hug you on the phone, so hurry home

    Well the message light was blinking when he got back
    It was an old friend calling cause he just heard the news
    He says Man I hope you find her
    If I see her I'll remind her that her dad is worried
    And want her to know

    [Chorus]

    Well the days dragged by without a word from her
    And it looked like she might not be coming back
    People said man don't you think it's time to take that old message off
    He said no, you never know when she might call

    She was just outside a bar in New York City
    Her so-called friends had left her all alone
    She was scared he wouldn't want her
    But she dialed up that old number and let it ring
    And then she heard him sing

    [Chorus]

    He walked in just in time to hear her say
    Dad, I'm on my way Writer/s: Zane Williams
