i take it on home lyrics – charlie rich

sometimes at the end of the day
before i head home, i make a stop along the way
a couple of drinks, wait for the 5 o’clock rush to go by

and almost always there’s a lady
oh, and it’s so hard, she starts coming on
i back it on up, turn it around and take it on home

sometimes i’ve gotta go out of town
i’ll be gone for a couple of days
and this buddy of mine he’s a hound in the first degree

and almost always there’s the ladies
and it ain’t easy there out and alone
but i back it on up, turn it around, take it on home

i take it on home to a woman who sticks by me
’cause i believe she’d do the same if she was me
and i wouldn’t know where to turn to if she was gone
so when i ain’t working, i don’t hang out i take it on home
i back it on up, turn it around and take it on home
