It's a long time since I saw you last So tell me how you've been Did you ever get to buy that yellow coat? Do the flowers in you window box Still smile when you walk in? Did you read the letters that I wrote? And I've been on the road since Christmas But it don't seem so long Outside of that there isn't much to say
I cut down on my drinkin' some And wrote another song I wish you wouldn't look at me that way Remember all the mornings We'd walk around the park The nights we babysat for Billy's kids
And all the times we used to talk Of having one ourselves I don't remember why we never did Do the neighbors still complain a bit When the music gets too loud? Does your old cat still sleep up on the bed? And do you still walk around
With your head up in the clouds? Have you heard a single thing I've said? It's a two day drive to New York Guess I'd better go
Have you noticed the weather's gettin' cold? And it's a long time since I saw you last Tell me how you've been Did you ever get to buy that yellow coat? Did you ever get to buy that yellow coat?
