On Susan's Floor by Mac Wiseman -- 
Covered by Hank Jr & Gorden Lightfoot

C
Didn't feel so cold and tired,stretched out before her fire,
                                   G7 
Rollin' smokes and drinkin' up her wine;
       C       F     C        
And I remember candlelight and singin' songs,
                      G7
Till we could sing no more,
                                    C  
Then fallin' fast asleep on Susan's floor.



Chorus            F       C
Now that my song is sweeter,
         F     C
Lord I'd like to greet her;
C6                         F    C   G7
To thank her for the favor that she gave,
  F          C                               F
A stranger I came, my head bowed in the rain 
F  C   C7    C6 - C
To her door.

Verse 2
I sat and sang my songs on Susan's floor.
In the morning I'd go on leaving Susan and my songs,
Knowing I'd be back in just a while,
Healing in the sunshine of her smile.

Verse 3
Well, lots of time and songs have passed,
I catch myself just looking back;
Reliving all the wonder of those nights;
That's where I would be today,

If I had only stayed one night more,
And sang another song on Susan's floor.
Like crippled ships that make it through a storm,
And finally reach a quiet shore,
The hopeless found a home on Susan's floor.
