  • No one hurries home to lonely women
    No one hurries home to lonely women
    A gal could die without her man
    And no one knows it better than
    Lonely women

    No one knows the blues like lonely women do
    No one knows the blues like lonely women, yeah
    Blues that make the walls rush in
    Walls that tell you where you've been
    And you've been to the hollow
    Lonely women yeah

    Let me die early morning
    Whoa bitter tears, whoa bitter tears
    Uptight downpour

    Don't got no children to be grandmother for, be grandmother for
    She don't believe no more
    She don't believe no one hurries home to call you baby
    Everybody knows, everybody knows, everybody knows
    But no one, no one knows. Writer/s: LAURA NYRO
