I CAN'T HANG UP THE PHONE

by John D. Loudermilk
1962 by Acuff-Rose Publ Inc.
as performed by Stonewall Jackson

You just called up to say
It's over as of today
Without even telling me the reason why
And it's caused my heart to break
You just hung up in my face
I didn't even have the chance to say goodbye

Now I just can't hang up the phone
'Cause that would mean you're really gone
So I just keep on a-sayin' that I love you to th' dialing tone
'Cause I just can't, can't hang up the phone

Your calling and saying we're through
Can't stop my loving you
And I hope that it can't stop your loving me
So I just sit here all alone
Wait 'til you pick up your phone
And tell me that you're coming back to me

Now I just can't ...
