"Tell Him" as written by and Bert Russell....
If you wait
By the side of the road
Then I will pick you up
If you stay
And wait for me
I will be there in my baby blue Ford
I will be there from two in the morn
But don't tell your dad
Because I don't have a tale to tell
Tell him something else
Tell him you're away
Tell him anything
Tell him you're at Julie's
Tell him you're away
Tell him anything
Tell him you're at Julie's
So give him the number
To call if he's scared
To call if he cares
Give him the number
To call if he's scared
To call if he cares
If you wait
By the side of the road
Then you will be disappointed
If you stay and wait for me
In my baby blue Ford
I ain't coming round here no more
So go tell your dad
Because I never had a tale to tell you
Go tell him we are through?

    General CommentI'm not quite sure what makes him change his mind in the middle of the song, but I love the raw emotion in his voice. It's such a good cryin song.

    General Commenti agree with kremit, this is a good crying song. i think what i like about this song, is it takes you through such a wide range of emotions because he starts out singing about when they were together, and then... not anymore. okay, so benton falls says it best ;)
