Ray Charles Lyrics

We put on Ray Charles and broke up
You were packed and gone when I woke up
Ray just kept on singing
He had Georgia on his mind
You just keep on leaving
You keep leaving all the time

Wonder if the stars will die tonight
Yeah I wonder if the cats(?) are gonna fight
There's no rest for the restless
So I doubt that you'll sleep well
I don't think that I will
My head's ringing like a bell

(Chorus)
Love is blind and I don't blame her
Cause lately I ain't been too much to see
I'd bring some girl home but then I'd have to pay her
Won't you come home with me Rosemary

When I walked in the bar you tried to hide
But I took my old place right by your side
You looked like a raccoon
With those circles round your eyes
If my offer is improper
Please come home with me tonight

Well I'll prick myself and see if blood comes out
I'll play until the whole damn tape runs out
I'll put on that Ray Charles record
If you'll make some drinks
Nothing is the matter
It don't matter what you think

(Chorus)
Love is blind and I don't blame her
Cause we all could use a little sympathy
I'd bring some girl home but then I'd have to pay her
Won't you come home with me Rosemary
(Repeat 1st chorus)
