On Susan's Floor by Mac Wiseman --
Covered by Hank Jr & Gorden Lightfoot
Didn't feel so cold and tired,stretched out before her fire,
Rollin' smokes and drinkin' up her wine;
C F C
And I remember candlelight and singin' songs,
Till we could sing no more,
Then fallin' fast asleep on Susan's floor.
Chorus F C
Now that my song is sweeter,
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.
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.
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.
