No Telephone In Heaven


Now [G]I can't wait on baby the [C]smiling merchant [G]said

As stooped and softly toyed with his golden curly [D]head

I [G]want to call up mamma came the [C]answer full and [G]free

Will you telephone and ask her when she's [D]coming back to [G]me


   My child the merchant murmured as he stroked the anxious brow

   No telephone connection where your mother lives at now

   No telephone in heaven and a tear sprang in her eyes

   I thought God had everything with him up in the sky


Tell her that I get so lonesome that I don't know what to do

And pappa cries so much I guess he must be lonesome too

Tell her to come to baby cause at night I get so 'fraid

With no one there to kiss me when the lights begin to fade



All through the day I want her since my dolly's got so sore

With the awful punching brother give it with his little sword

There aint no one to fix it since mamma's gone away

And poor little lonesome dolly's getting thinner every day

CHORUS + G - D - G
