    "Rita" Lyrics

    Willy Porter

    Well, she hobbled up the porch steps
    With her crutches and her broken leg
    She missed me with a smile
    Walked straight across my heart
    And right on over to him

    I said, "Rita, I tried to call you"
    Tim looked at me and he said, good night
    I couldn't hold my tears as I stared up at the stars
    In the August sky

    I said, "Rita, won't you come on in?

    Hey, Rita, child, now, where ya been?"

    She looked out into the night
    Through the broken porch screen
    She said she thought that we were closer
    She expected more from me

    I said, "Now, honey, I thought about you
    And all that you'd been through
    But the day your daddy died
    I just didn't know what to do"

    "Rita, I see our trust is gone
    How long do we have to pay
    For what's been left undone?"

    Rita takes her sandals off
    And walks barefoot in the grass
    With one arm around my shoulder
    As if she were using me for balance

    I said, "Rita, I'd like to see you
    Even if we're only friends
    I know if you forgive me, Rita
    I'll forget and you'll remember
    You always remember"
