Lyrics

The diner door swings open.
The morning air comes drifting in.
The coffee and the bacon,
They're here waiting for you to come back again.

You make your home somewhere in Mobile.
Drive your truck all through the night.
You say that I don't know how it feels
To be going, and I know that you're right.

The diner door swings open.
The noontime sun is burning down.
My two o'clock fifteen
Well it just seems so far away from now.

There's flowers in the garden.
I've been watching while they wilt.
I was gonna pick them for you.
This ain't no way for a woman to waste her youth.

And I've made a decision.
I'm gonna put this coffee down.
I've got my suitcase packed and ready
For the next time you pull into town.

The diner door swings open.
There goes my last tip of the night.
The parking lot is empty.
I lock the door and turn out the light.

The diner door swings open.
The morning air comes drifting in.
The coffee and the bacon,
They're here waiting for you to come back again.

You make your home somewhere in Mobile.
Drive your truck all through the night.
You say that I don't know how it feels
To be going, and I know that you're right.

The diner door swings open.
The noontime sun is burning down.
My two o'clock fifteen
Well it just seems so far away from now.

There's flowers in the garden.
I've been watching while they wilt.
I was gonna pick them for you.
This ain't no way for a woman to waste her youth.

And I've made a decision.
I'm gonna put this coffee down.
I've got my suitcase packed and ready
For the next time you pull into town.

The diner door swings open.
There goes my last tip of the night.
The parking lot is empty.
I lock the door and turn out the light.

The diner door swings open.
The morning air comes drifting in.
The coffee and the bacon,
They're here waiting for you to come back again.

You make your home somewhere in Mobile.

To be going, and I know that you're right.
