Hello my friend how long has it been
you've been out west a traveling
well this country is cruel and folks are scared
a fella's gotta take some care

i see you're hurting don't explain
just come in from the falling rain
we'll have a cup and look out the pane
until the storm has blown away

so pull up a seat and sit with me
no need for words or sympathy
cause i know you and you know me
we'll watch the sun go down

we'll bring a bottle we'll tell some tales
we'll sit up on a big hay bail
when night has come and the moon is high
we'll draw some pictures on the sky

the morning's near and the sky is red
i'll tiptoe to my sweetheart's bed
well you go your way and i'll go mine
i'll see you soon on down the line

so pull up a seat and sit with me
no need for words or sympathy
watch the sun set on the trees
just like we used to do

love has come and love is gone
i'm just trying to carry on
i learned some things and then forgot
i ended up where i set off

i love my lady sharp and hot
loving her takes all i got
but my love for you is long and slow
and keeps on steady as she goes

so pull up a seat and sit with me
no need for words or sympathy
cause i know you and you know me
we'll watch the sun go down
we'll watch the sun go down
