Knockin On Your Screen Door Lyrics

I ain't got nobody - hangin' 'round my doorstep
Ain't got no loose change - just a-hangin' 'round my jeans
If you see somebody - would you send em' over my way?
I could use some help here - with a can of pork and beans

I once had a family - but they up and left me
With nothing but an 8-track - another side of George Jones
I was in high cotton - just a-bangin' on my six-string
A-kickin' at the trash can - walkin' skin and bone

I can see your back porch - if I close my eyes now
I can hear the train tracks - through the laundry on the line
I'm thinking it's your business - but you don't got to answer
I'm knocking on your screen door - in the summertime

Everybody's out there - climbin' on the trees now
Swingin' in the breeze now - hangin' on the vine
I'm dreamin' 'bout a sailboat - I don't need a fur coat
Underneath the dashboard - got some sweet potato wine

I can see your back porch - if I close my eyes now
I can hear the train tracks - through the laundry on the line
I'm thinking it's your business - but you don't got to answer
I'm knocking on your screen door - in the summertime
I'm knocking on your screen door in the summertime
