David Ball — Watching My Baby Not Coming Back lyrics

Looking out across the field is the old highway
Here comes a Ford there goes a Chevrolet
Well I got my heart set on seeing her Cadillac
Yeah I'm sittin' here watchin' my baby not coming back
I put a million miles on this rocking chair of mine
Going back and forth over everything in my mind
I said this when I should have been sayin' that
Now I'm sittin' here watchin' my baby not coming back
I've got every single thing I should've said memorized
For the minute that car of hers pulls up the drive
But the longer she's gone the more I realize
All that's headin' my way is a broken heart a tractor trailer and a foreign car
[ steel - fiddle ]
I've got every single thing...

I'm watching everything that comes around the curve
Sittin' here wishin' that I'd gone after her
But at that time I was much too proud for that
Now I'm sittin' here watchin' my baby not coming back
Yeah I'm sittin' here watchin' my baby not coming back
Oh sittin' here watchin' my baby not coming back
