Lord, I’ve been waiting for you by the side of the road
And I’ve been unkind
Oh lord, I’ve been waiting for you by the side of the road
And I’ve been unkind

And the devil is out by my doorstep
He must have seen the fires I began
Or the smile I couldn’t hide – I think I turn him on

Of all that I see he shouts with his deepest voice
“You’re the one I want the most” – and he rises to the boat

And the trees outside they are a-moaning
That I’ve got a woman who will save my soul
And the trees outside they are a-moaning
That I’ve got a woman who will save my soul

And my future is coming to me
Gently whispering to my ear
“My hope – my all that I’ll be”
Well I’ve got a woman who loves me
Lord, I’ve been waiting for you by the side of the road
And I’ve been unkind

(Coins)
“This must do” he says, leaning violently against my face
Huh – you ain’t sinking this boat son – you’re coming with me

‘cause I’ve got a woman who loves me
Lord, I’ve been waiting for you by the side of the road
And I’ve been

And the trees outside they are a-moaning
That I’ve got a woman who will save my soul
And the trees outside they are a-moaning
That I’ve got a woman who will save me
Lord, I’ve been waiting for you by the side of the road
And I’ve been unkind
Oh lord, I’ve been waiting for you by the side of the road
And I’ve been unkind
