Red Checkered Tablecloth Lyrics

Well, another busy night's come to an end
I think I'll just rest my weary bones and set here with
my friend
Folks may say I'm a crazy old coot, well, I recon I
could be
But this old red checkered tablecloth means an awful
lot to me.
You see I wait the tables, I'm here most every night
I see young folks a-kissin' an' I sure do see 'em fight
And that old checkered tablecloth in the corner over
Well, it's my friend, we both of a secret that we
Dreams belong to every man and mine just might come
That's why this old checkered table cloth is, is always
set for two

I know I'm just a waiter but it weren't always so
I used to bring my true love here some twenty years
And right across the table while we'd be holding hands
My friend the checkered table cloth would listen to our
Every single night I'd bring her to this place
I can't forget her laughter and I just can't forget her
Now I sit here with my friend an' I rest my weary bones
My love walked out that door one night an' left me here
That's why I never left this place and I'll tell you
somethin' more
Some day I'm gonna see my love aome a-walking through
that door.
Now after ten we're sitting here just like we used to
This old red checkered table cloth is always set for
