At The Sound Of The Tone

In the style of

John Schneider

Lyrics

i called her up
to say i'm sorry
i just can't
have lunch today

'cause the boss
just called
and he's
flyin' in from l.a.

and as the phone rang
i remembered a time
how simple things
used to be
then her voice
came on the line
not her but
the answer machine

she said i'm sorry
i can't take your call
'cause i'm packin' up
to go away

and john
if that's you
you're just
cancellin' lunch
anyway

ah you used to
find the time
but now
you don't even try
so at the
sound of the tone
you're on your own
goodbye

i ran down
to the street
and i caught a cab
god i had to
get back home

but the house
was empty
except for
the code-a-phone

and as the tears came
i remembered a time
how happy
we used to be
and i'll never forget
the last words
she ever said to me

she said i'm sorry
i can't take your call
'cause i'm packin' up
to go away

and john
if that's you
you're just
cancellin' lunch
anyway

ah you used to
find the time
but now you
don't even try
so at the
sound of the tone
you're on your own
goodbye

she said you used to
find the time
but now you
don't even try
so at the
sound of the tone
you're on your own
goodbye
