Every time it rains, baby, I run to my window
And all I do is rain my hands and moan
I listen to that thunder roll
Can't you hear that lonesome wind moan?
Tell me, baby, why you been gone so long?

Tell me, baby, why you been gone so long?
You been gone so long, girl
Tell me, baby, why you been gone so long?

Wolves are scratchin' at my door
And I can hear that lonesome wind moan
Tell me baby, why you been gone so long?

Someone said they thought, they saw
You roarin' down in Reno
With a big old dude from San Antone
They asked me, I'm a fool for you
And I guess I am, what do they know?
Tell me, baby, why you been gone so long?

Tell me, baby, why you been gone so long?
You been gone so long, girl
Tell me, baby, why you been gone so long?

Wolves are scratchin' at my door
And I can hear that lonesome wind moan
Tell me, baby, why you been gone so long? Yeah

There ain't nothing I would not do, oh yeah
I guess, I'd get stoned
And let the past paint pictures in my head
Kill a fifth of a thunderbird
And then try to write a sad song
And tell me, baby, why you been gone so long?

Tell me, baby, why you been gone so long?
You been gone so long, girl
Tell me, baby, why you been gone so long?

Wolves are scratchin' at my door
And I can hear that lonesome wind moan
Tell me, baby, why you been gone so long?

Come on, baby
Tell me baby, baby, why you been gone so long?
