Jason Boland & The Stragglers — Telephone Romeo lyrics

We kept part and connected by the same stretch of road
And I'm tired of packin' round this heavy load
It started out a stream but then the levee fell
When the rain maker had some extra seeds to sell

Well I just thought id call and see what's going on
Did the hill country flatten out since I've been gone
Are the fields all painted up in red and blue
Are you thinking of me the times I'm thinking of you

Chorus
Well I just wanna drink 'til I'm not thirsty
And I just wanna sleep 'til I'm not tired
I just wanna drive till I run out of money
I don't wanna be no Romeo on the telephone wire

Could we dream up a reason for a rendezvous
The Yanks are in town and we got nothing to do
You're neighbors are gone and you're feeling alone
You can't kiss somebody on the telephone

Did you go out last night and was it just a friend
Would you care if I showed up there at 6: 00 am
Drive all day with the top pulled down
We could stay in all night or we could paint the town

Chorus

I guess I better go now it's getting too late
There's a party downstairs and I thought I heard something break
I bid you goodnight and hope to see you soon
Maybe later on this afternoon

Chorus
