about

This song was written by Richie but I love to sing it.

lyrics

Skeeter left one broken night in 1989
He tossed a Jim Beam bottle at the city limits sign
In a stolen car with a wad of cash heading towards the dawn
Fortified by holy pills his road goes on and on

(chorus)
Skeeter’s going home tonight one way or another
He’s calling up all of his imaginary lovers
Dialing wrong numbers bending strangers' ears
Pleading amnesty for all his wasted years

Dad awoke to the slamming of the rusty screen door
Mama found her empty jewely box on the floor
Too late to try and stop him there's no time for regrets
The only thing he’s looking for is how to forget

Those Dallas nights keep creeping back in waves of tragedy
Was it Jane or Marylou the face he always sees
The dampness of her tears yanks his memory chain
Another stolen heart along with all her pocket change

Skeeter’s taking refuge where the dirty laundry hides
Serenaded on the couch to the buzzing of the flies
While moon beams dance through broken windows something calls him home
The sleeping vagabond takes his final ride alone
