he’ll have to go lyrics – charley pride

put your sweet lips a little closer to the phone
let’s pretend that we’re together, all alone
i’ll tell the man to turn the juke box way down low
and you can tell your friend there with you he’ll have to go.

whisper to me, tell me do you love me true
or is he holding you the way i do?
tho’ love is blind, make up your mind, i’ve got to know
should i hang up, or will you tell him he’ll have to go?

you can’t say the words i want to hear
while you’re with another man
do you want me, answer “yes” or “no,”
darling, i will understand.

put your sweet lips a little closer to the phone
let’s pretend that we’re together, all alone
i’ll tell the man to turn the juke box way down low
and you can tell your friend there with you he’ll have to go…
