Waitin' for the Day

Waitin' for the Day

Townes Van Zandt

Well, I no longer can recall
F C
All the times you made me crawl
(F) G G7
All the times you made me hang my head and cry
C
But still the teardrops fall
F C
And lord what's worst of all
G F C
I just ain't got the nerve to say goodbye

F
I'm waitin' for the day
C
When I can hide my love away
(F) G G7
And stand up like a man so tall and free
F
Then you'll be the one to say
C C/b Am
Oh darlin', can't you stay
G F C
I don't know what I'd do if you should leave me

Oh girl, I don't know why
You always have to try
To hurt me to make me feel ashamed
Oh, but someday by and by
You're gonna be the one to cry
And walk the floor and sadly call my name

Oh, I'm waitin' for the day
When I can hide my love away
And stand up like a man so tall and free
Then you'll be the one to say
Oh darlin', can't you stay
I don't know what I'd do if you should leave me

Oh, but it looks like until then
I'll throw pride to the wind
And try to make believe that I don't know
That a day is comin' when
You won't do me wrong again
And I will be the one to turn and go

I'm waitin' for the day
When I can hide my love away
And stand up like a man so tall and free
Then you'll be the one to say
Oh darlin', can't you stay
I don't know what I'd do if you should leave me
