With pen in hand by Ferlin Husky
With Pen in hand you signed your name. Today at five I'll be on that train.
And, You'll be free and I'll be all alone, so alone.
If you think we can't find the love we once knew.
If you think I can't make it all up to you.
Then I'll be gone and you'll be on your own. You'll be on your own.
Can you take care of little Johnny? Can you take him to school everyday?
Can you teach him how to catch a fish and keep all those bullies away? Hear what I say.
Can you teach him how to whistle a tune?
Can you tell him about the man in the moon?
If you can do these things, then maybe he won't miss me. Johnny won't miss me.
And tonight as you lay in that big empty bed,
can you look at the pillow where I laid my head.
With your heart on fire will you have no desire to kiss me, and to hold me?
If you can forget the good times we had, if you think that the good times won't outweigh the bad,
Then sign your name, and I'll be on my way.
