PFFT You Were Gone

This song is by Buck Owens and appears on the album Too Old to Cut the Mustard? (1972).

Down here on the farm the weather gets messy
Layin' around with nothin' to do
When you went away, you took my cow Bessie
I miss her darlin', more than I miss you

You took off your leg, your wig and your eye glass
And you shoud've seen the look on my face
I wanted to kiss, I wanted to hug you
But you were scattered all over the place

Where, oh where, are you tonight?
Why did you leave me here all alone?
I searched the world over
And I thought I found true love
You met another and
Pffft! You were gone

I know that you love me, here's my way of knowing
The proof's hanging out right there on the line
When I see the snow and feel the wind blowing
Your nightie's hugging them long johns of mine

The noises you made at our supper table
Your habits, my dear, were surely absurd
But how many times do I have to tell you?
Soup is a dish to be seen and not heard

Where, oh where, are you tonight?
Why did you leave me here all alone?
I searched the world over
And I thought I found true love
You met another and
Pffft! You were gone

Remember you phoned me a-sobbin' and cryin'
The dog bit your maw, and drug her around
You said she looked pale and thought she was dying
I said "Don't worry, I'll buy a new hound"

I had six kids and you had eleven
And we had eight more, and they grew like flowers
I wish you'd come back, without you ain't heaven
'Cause your kids and my kids are beatin' up ours

Where, oh where, are you tonight?
Why did you leave me here all alone?
I searched the world over
And I thought I found true love
You met another and
Pffft! You were gone

I searched the world over
And I thought I found true love
You met another and
Pffft! You were gone...
