The Evenings Are For Thinking

from by Perry Bryan



How long am I going?
Where am I gonna be?
When will I meet my friend?
From this burden I wish to be free.

When the night rolls in all strange
And my sad self falls down to thinking,
And I wonder when my thoughts will change.
Oh the evenings are for thinking.
The evenings are for thinking.

You are all I see,
Day dreamin'.
And when you said your love is real,
I said mine too, it's all that I feel.
And you were scarce, always unseen,
A hard five years of our in between.
And when you came and lied next to me,
I said darling don't you ever leave
But my darling you turn and flee.

So I'm a-going take a trip out west,
And my innocence will lay down to rest.
And my past is laid out in the dust,
And the changin' of a man is a god-damned must.
And the changin' of a man is a god-damned must.

I know that you have enough to do
But Emma let me fall in love with you.
Sometimes the day leaves me slain,
Oh my love I did it all for you.
My love I did it all for you.
