The Key's In The Mailbox (Buck Owens)
Recorded by Bill Ryan & Buckshot
1972 Play PLAY39 / Staten Island

Oh jealous me and careless you the odds were just too great,
I couldn't take those lonely nights you made me sit and wait
I thought I'd seen the last of you when you walked out of sight
Instead I see you in my dreams each night;

So the key's in the mailbox come on in
I'm sitting here wishing dear I had your love again
I'll never even ask you where you've been
The key's in the mailbox come on in

I said I'd rather be alone than share your company
I said don't come around at all if you want more than me,
But sitting here alone I can't deny the flame that burns
I'd gladly take you back on any terms

So the key's in the mailbox...

(Originally recorded by Buck Owens)
