Melinda Lyrics

Artist: Porter Wagoner
Album: Simple As I Am

I drifted into Arkansas in the middle of September
I hadn't planned to stay for long just to visit an old friend that I remembered
Quite surprised he asked if I could stay till late October
And help him with his crops till harvest time was over
He offered me a clean white bed said that I was welcome at his table
But I told him that I'd eat outside bed down in the barn above the stables
I told him that I didn't want to be no trouble to his lovely wife
But he didn't know she was the reason that I'd come cause I loved her more than life
Oh Melinda I just had to see you one more time Melinda
I won't cause you any trouble with my stay
Oh Melinda I just had to see you one more time Melinda
One more time Melinda then I'll go away

Melinda it's so good to see you happy I had always hoped you would be
I know you couldn't help it that you loved him more than you love me
I know he's a good man and he's always been a friend of mine
And I think the world of both of you and I just had to see you one more time
Oh Melinda...
One more time Melinda then I'll go away
