"Tell Me Lover" as written by and Rayland Baxter....
On a long cold lonely winter's night
In a lonely town where only one survives
There's a lonely road that's leadin' to the heart
Of the broken home of a lonely man

This house is old and fragile like the bones
Of an old man without love growin' old alone
He holds her picture in his hand
Tell me lover is this how it ends
Tell me lover is this how it ends

In a quiet town west of Philadelph'
On a quiet road she waits for one else
Dear Henry never came that way again
It was the bullet from the gun of a greedy man
But day break you can find her on the line
Makin' sure that the 303 is right on time
She holds his ticket in her hand
Tell me lover is this how it ends
Tell me lover is this how it ends

On this mountain side is where I lay my head
On the otherside, he cries, that lonely man
And my bones ache and my eyes are bloody red
As I listen to the cry of the weary wind
Sayin' maybe you'll come back again
Tell me lover
Tell me lover is this how it ends
Tell me lover is this how it ends
