Why You Been Gone So Long

This song is by Bill Anderson and appears on the album My Life/But You Know I Love You (1969).

Every time it rains Lord I run to my window
All I do is ring my hands and moan
Listen to that thunder roll
And hear that lonesome wind blow.

Tell me baby why you been gone so long
Tell me baby why you been gone so long
You been gone so long now
Tell me baby why you been gone so long?

Wolf is scratching at my door
And I can hear that lonesome wind moan
Tell me baby why you been gone so long.

Someone said they thought they saw
You roarin' down in Reno
With a big oil man from San Antone
They tell me I'm a fool to pine for you
But what do they know
Tell me baby why you been gone so long.

Tell me baby why you been gone so long
Tell me baby why you been gone so long
You been gone so long now
Tell me baby why you been gone so long?

Tell me baby why you been gone so long
Tell me baby why you been gone so long
You been gone so long now
Tell me baby why you been gone so long?

Tell me baby why you been gone so long?...
