“Come on In”

Come on in, you sure look good to me
Come on in, I’ve learned how lonely I can be
I guess we’ll never know just what went wrong
You know it’s been a whole year has passed us, by and gone
But we’re back together now where we belong
So baby, come on in

Come on in, I heard your footstep on the stair
Come on in, I’d know it anywhere
Your old chair in the corner’s just a-sittin’ there waitin’
It’s been a long time, anticipating
What a long time it’s been
So baby, come on in

Over and over I told myself
I said, “Son, you’ve got to lose these blues”
Get ready for the day when she’ll walk in the door
So I dusted off your housecoat and I polished up your shoes

Come on in, you know you’re welcome here
Ah, come on in, it’s been a long, long year
Now I know why I waited around
I wouldn’t run around town lettin’ you put me down
I knew if I waited I would win
So baby, come on in

Come on in
Come on in
Oh, come on in
