I talked to ya just today
You told me everything that I needed to know
And just talking' to you helped me get myself together some

Knowin' you're still there and waitin' to love just me
Well I'm here gettin' by, just gettin' high
Knowin' your still my old standby

You told me to do your best to finish what you start
You told me loose ends tend too often to unravel
Well I'm tired of all these loose ends, I'm tired of all this traveling'
I've missed you so much, I wish we were still together
Cuz I'm getting' older and Mama you make me better

Knowin' you're still there and waitin' to love just me
And I'm here gettin' by, still gettin' high
And knowin' I'm still your old standby

You know I talked to you just today
You told me everything that I needed to know
And talkin' to you helped me get on my feet a little
Well always do your best to finish what you start
And I've been waiting' here for ya since ya left me with a broken heart

Knowin' you're still there and waitin' to love just me
I'm here getting' by, still gettin' high
Knowin' your my old standby

And I'm here gettin' by, still gettin' high
Comin' home to my old standby
