Songs of Will T. Massey — “Waiting on You”

This one’s a true rarity — an unreleased co-write with Will’s good friend, Rosie Flores, recorded live at the Chicago House release party for “Slow Study,” back in 1989.

btw: that’s Jesse “Guitar” Taylor wailing on lead guitar and most likely me knocking over the empty beer bottle mid-song for that added live recording touch.

Well, it’s been a case of Lone Star
Since you rode away.
I’m going under just wondering
Where you are —
I’m just here to stay.
So, if you find your freedom
Leaves you lonely,
And if you ever need
Some lovin’ company —

Drive down the road, hon —
Come back to me,
Take a left at Lonesome,
Hang a right on Memory,
Take the Trail of Tears
To the Home of the Blues —
I’ll always be here,
Waiting on you.

Well, baby, our favorite wishin’ well
Is missing your dimes.
Oh, but you know I still wish you well
And it still gets all of mine.
You know, some believe it’s a foolish life
Hanging onto a rolling stone,
But I still believe in porch lights
And cowboys coming home.

So, drive down the road, hon —
Come back to me,
Take a left at Lonesome,
Hang a right on Memory,
Take the Trail of Tears
To the Home of the Blues —
I’ll always be here,
Waiting on you.

Repeat chorus

I’ll always be here,
Waiting on you.
