All I Asked Of You

This song is by Steve Forbert and appears on the album Over With You (2012).

Well, I hear you talk and I hear you tell it
Well, I always get what the hell I want
But we disagree once again, my darling
'Cause it's clear to me that I usually don't

All I asked of you was a chance to make it right
Right (right), right

I was at that house where the one-armed man lived
What I saw up there was some disrepair
If I saw your heart, after all we've been through
Would it look to be
Much the same in there

All I asked of you was a chance to make it right
Right (right), right

The way your sword tailed cat left the porch and showed me
What a rocking chair and a kid can do
I'll be on my way
When your clock strikes morning
Down the break of day on the five-oh-two

All I asked of you was a chance to make it right
Right (right), right

This is not the way
It should be, my darling
You should be my wife
I should work all day
You should rest your mind there in bed beside me
When I get back home off the vast highway

All I asked of you was a chance to make it right
Right (right)

All I asked of you was a chance to make it right
Right, right

(Instrumental Outro)
