I didn't come to California
To have a cup of coffee
If you don't mind I'll get right to the point
I heard about the baby
From Sarah when I saw her
I heard that Jeremiah's in the joint

I know you came out west to just start over
Looks just like the life you left in Kansas
With a baby in your bed and a man up in the pen
No way to make it work except for dancing

The lawyers bleed you dry and then he's guilty
You wore your best dress to the courthouse and then he's gone
What really broke your heart is when you got back to your car
The radio played his favorite song

I came to California
With a proposition
I wanna be the one that helps you out
Cause your daughters need a father
And if we could be together
I could be the man around your house

I know I've had some problems
I know I'm far from perfect
There's some things about my past that I'm not proud of
But after I left Kansas
I accepted my lord Jesus
Since then I've been mostly off the stuff

We both know Jeremiah really loves you
We also know its years till he gets out
Your daughters need a father
And we could be together
I can be the man around this house
I could be the man around this house
