STEVE EARLE lyrics - The Usual Time

STEVE EARLE
"The Usual Time"

Late in the evening
Just about to lay down
Was there at your backdoor
Did you hear a strange sound, girl?

Honey I just saw your light
Here I come baby
It's the usual time of night

I can't help but want you
Ever since i known ya
I would never hurt you
I don't want to own you

Girl, I just want to hold you tight
Here I come baby
It's the usual time of night

I know you don't love me
I know you don't need me
If you ever want me
Just hit on your back porch light
At the usual time of night

[Instrumental]

Now I been down to Texas
I been to New Orleans
I was born a rambler
You are gonna haunt my dreams
Any time the wound is right
Here I come baby
It's the usual time of night

I know you don't love me
I know you don't need me
If you ever want me
Just leave on your back porch light
At the usual time of night

Here I come
Here I come baby
