Western Union Wire Lyrics

Artist: Kinky Friedman
Album: Sold American

(Kinky Friedman)

From a cheap hotel in Dallas
On a cold December day
A telegram was traveling on its way
LiKe a sad old song from somewhere
In the distance of a dream
Flashing €˜cross the darkness
On the telegraph machine.

It said, €œFrom Billy,€? at the bottom, €œTo Baby,€? at the top
Western Union Wire €" €œPlease help me€? €" stop.
Western Union Wire €" €œDon€™t leave me.€? €" stop.

Well, the taxicab it took her
To the airport in the dawn,
She knew in just an hour she€™d be gone.
She was standing near the platform
€˜Bout to board the big Pan Am
When someone came
And put the lonely message in her hand.

It said, €œFrom Billy,€? at the bottom, €œTo Baby,€? at the top
Western Union Wire €" €œPlease help me€? €" stop.
Western Union Wire €" €œDon€™t leave me.€? €" stop.

Headin€™ high above Chicago
Just a-reachin€™ for the skies
She found herself with teardrops in her eyes.
And a little boy beside her asked her,
€œMama, where is Pop ?€?
And she just broke down a-cryin€™
€˜Cause she knew she couldn€™t stop.

It said, €œFrom Billy,€? at the bottom, €œTo Baby,€? at the top
Western Union Wire €" €œDon€™t leave me.€? €" stop.
€œAh, you said you€™d always love me €" how could you ?€? €" stop,
€œIn pieces on the runway €" I love you.€? €" stop.
