A Long Ways This Mornin'

 

That ol' winter sun

Is a long ways from bein' hot this mornin'

But sometime next spring it'll get a little warmer

We'll bundle up our babies and work a whole lot harder

'Cause it's a long ways from bein' hot this mornin'

 

They say New York's got it bad

But it's a long ways from where I am this mornin'

But someday next year I might get a little closer

So bundle up our babies and work a whole lot harder

'Cause it's a long ways from where  I am this mornin'

 

It's funny how the time

Is a long ways from passin' by this mornin'

But some way tomorrow she might think a little softer

And we'll bundle up our babies and I'll work a whole lot harder

'Cause I'm a long ways from her love this mornin'
