EDDY ARNOLD lyrics - With Pen In Hand

EDDY ARNOLD
"With Pen In Hand"

With pen in hand you signed your name
Today at five I'll be on that train
And you'll be free and I will be alone
So alone,

If you think we can't find the love we once knew
If you think I can't make everything up to you
Then I'll be gone and you'll be on your own
You'll be on your own.

Can you take good care of Johnny
Can you take him to school everyday
Can you teach him how to catch a fish
And keep all those bullys away, hear what I say

Can you teach him how to whistle a tune
Can you tell him about the man on the moon
If you can do these things then maybe he won't miss me
Maybe he won't miss me.

And tonight as you lay in that big lonely bed
And you look at the pillow where I laid my head
With your heart on fire will you have no desire
To kiss me and to hold me

And if you can forget the good times we had
If you don't think the good times won't outweigh the bad
Then sign your name and I'll be on my way
I'll be on my way. hmm hmm...
