Time To Stay Home

Time To Stay Home

Jerry Jeff Walker

This is a time to be cautious; this is a time to be smart
This is a time to consider the options, be careful with games of the heart
A time for young fellas to carry umbrellas
And considering the climate, you really might find it
The right time to stay at home

The booze gets your liver, but when you consider
The condition of water, a man really ought to
Abstain for the night and just stay home

It's dangerous out on the freeway, its dangerous out in the bars
Everybody's mad at somebody, it?s dangerous to drink and drive cars

Whiskeys?s bad for your liver, but stop and consider
The condition of water, then maybe you ought to
Find a good book and stay home

AIDS is to real to be foolish, it?s changed all the rules we play by
You can't take chances in other peoples' pants it's
Too risky to just casually try

Now I only smile at our social lifestyle
It all leaves me believing I'd find more relief in
Some Earl Klugh and the refuge of home
So now I turn off the porch light, next I'll unplug the phones
I'll get on my robe and my jammies, a nice fire sure warms the bones

I might write a letter, but what I like better
Is taking my guitar down and playing an old song
That makes me feel glad I stayed home
