"Make It Up" as written by and Joe Purdy....
When a train comes, I don't know what to do
I'm leaving town, but I ain't leaving you
When I get down, get these far away blues
And I don't wanna go back home

I could say I'm sorry if you think it would help
You say you call me, yeah but you never can tell
You just stand there, just wishing me well
And I can't think of nothing to say

And I'm gonna write you a song
To tell you just how much I've been missing you
You won't have to wait very long
And I'll be home dear
And I know that you've been crying at night
But you don't have to be lonesome 'cause
I'm gonna make it right
Make it up, make it up to you
Make it up, make it up to you

We've been gone now for weeks maybe longer
And its cold out and this hurts gettin' stronger
And I called you but you just sat in the corner
Just watching that telephone ring
Baby pick up so I can hear your sweet voice
Cause I miss you, you won't be sad anymore
Cause one day I'll walk through that door
And hold you in my arms

And I'm gonna write you a song
To tell you just how much I've been missing you
You won't have to wait very long
And I'll be home dear
And I know that you've been crying at night
But you don't have to be lonesome 'cause
I'm gonna make it right
Make it up, make it up to you
Make it up to you [Repeat x3]

You've been drinkin', you've been drinkin' your wine
And you're wasted, yes and wastin' your time
And its plain now, when you say it isn't mine
Yeah baby can't you see I've been tryin'
I'm ready 'cause I know this can work
And I would take you to the ends of the earth
Just hold on just a little bit longer and I'll be back by your side

Yeah cause, I'm gonna write you a song
To tell you just how much I've been missing you
You won't have to wait very long
And I'll be home dear
And I know you've been crying at night
But you don't have to be lonesome 'cause
I'm gonna make it right
Make it up, make it up to you
I'll make it up, I'll make it up
I'll make it up, I'll make it up
I'll make it up, I'll make it up

    General CommentAhhhh damnit Purdy. You did it again. You crept in through my ears and stuck a chord right in my heart. You are the reason I drink whiskey and the one to keep me company on those lonely nights. Thank you for putting my experiences into song.

    General CommentI love this song. Just about a somone who needs to out and live his life and do what he needs to do but knows he will be coming back to where he belongs. Although he is leaving, he never really left the one he loved "I'm leaving town, but I ain't leaving you" and will "make it up" to her when he returns...lovely song.
