"Waitin' On A Woman" as written by and Wynn/sampson Varble....
Sittin' on a bench at West Town Mall
He sat down in his overalls and asked me
You waitin' on a woman
I nodded yeah and said how 'bout you
He said son since nineteen fifty-two I've been
Waitin' on a woman

When I picked her up for our first date
I told her I'd be there at eight
And she came down the stairs at eight-thirty
She said I'm sorry that I took so long
Didn't like a thing that I tried on
But let me tell you son she sure looked pretty
Yeah she'll take her time but I don't mind
Waitin' on a woman

He said the wedding took a year to plan
You talk about an anxious man, I was nervous
Waitin' on a woman
And then he nudged my arm like old men do
And said, I'll say this about the honeymoon, it was worth it
Waitin' on a woman

And I don't guess we've been anywhere
She hasn't made us late I swear
Sometimes she does it just 'cause she can do it
Boy it's just a fact of life
It'll be the same with your young wife
Might as well go on and get used to it
She'll take her time 'cause you don't mind
Waitin' on a woman

I've read somewhere statistics show
The man's always the first to go
And that makes sense 'cause I know she won't be ready
So when it finally comes my time
And I get to the other side
I'll find myself a bench, if they've got any
I hope she takes her time, 'cause I don't mind
Waitin' on a woman

Honey, take your time, 'cause I don't mind
Waitin' on a woman

    General CommentHe waits because he loves her, if she takes two minutes or twenty it doesn't matter.

    "I've read somewhere statistics show

    And that makes sense 'cause I know she won't be ready
    So when it finally comes my time

    General CommentI love this song!!!!
    It is a beautiful song and ahs a beautiful meaning!!!!
    I love the line "I've read somewhere statistics show
    The man's always the first to go
    And that makes sense 'cause I know she won't be ready"
    My grandfather wad the first to go and I think it was because he knew my grandmother had more to do in life...... more things to finish before meeting him.

    General CommentMy old boyfriend dedicated this song to me because I take forever to do everything. I love how he compares waiting on a woman in so many different ways. He mentions waiting on her for their first date, waiting on her for their wedding night and waiting for her up in heaven. The song overall is so touching and sweet, while also being creative.
