    Lyrics

    Every time it rains, baby, I run to my window
    And all I do is rain my hands and moan
    I listen to that thunder roll
    Can't you hear that lonesome wind moan?
    Tell me, baby, why you been gone so long?

    Tell me, baby, why you been gone so long?
    You been gone so long, girl
    Tell me, baby, why you been gone so long?

    Wolves are scratchin' at my door
    And I can hear that lonesome wind moan
    Tell me baby, why you been gone so long?

    Someone said they thought, they saw
    You roarin' down in Reno
    With a big old dude from San Antone
    They asked me, I'm a fool for you
    And I guess I am, what do they know?
    Tell me, baby, why you been gone so long?

    Tell me, baby, why you been gone so long?
    You been gone so long, girl
    Tell me, baby, why you been gone so long?

    Wolves are scratchin' at my door
    And I can hear that lonesome wind moan
    Tell me, baby, why you been gone so long? Yeah

    There ain't nothing I would not do, oh yeah
    I guess, I'd get stoned
    And let the past paint pictures in my head
    Kill a fifth of a thunderbird
    And then try to write a sad song
    And tell me, baby, why you been gone so long?

    Tell me, baby, why you been gone so long?
    You been gone so long, girl
    Tell me, baby, why you been gone so long?

    Wolves are scratchin' at my door
    And I can hear that lonesome wind moan
    Tell me, baby, why you been gone so long?

    Come on, baby
    Tell me baby, baby, why you been gone so long?
