Sittin’ in my apartment missin’ you – song


I was trying to write a “country” sounding song and this is what came out.  I don’t think my brother Chris helped me with this one but… Chris, if you did, sorry bro… let me know and I’ll give ya credit too 🙂

Sittin’ in my apartment missin’ you

Sittin’ in my apartment
Been sittin’ for a day or two
Sittin’ in my apartment
And babe I’m missin’ you

I’m missin’
Don’t know where I’m goin’
And I don’t know what to do
I’m just sittin’ in my apartment
And babe I’m missin’ you 

Well you took our kids and kittens
You took the gold-fish too
You threw your stuff in the back of the truck
Ya took all that I knew

You said you’re headin’ for Memphis
You said you’d be there soon
Well you took our kids and kittens
And said I could fly to the moon 

I spent that first day mopin’
I sat here and I stewed
But now that it’s the second day
I’ve sunk into the blues

Don’t know where I’m goin’
And I don’t know what to do
I’m just sittin’ in my apartment
And babe I’m missin’ you

Oh I stomped around a little
Stomped and I stewed
Woke up our poor neighbor
Told her I’m missing you 

Well you took our kids and kittens
You took the gold fish too
You’re likely down in Memphis
And I don’t know what to do

Got to pull myself together
Yah that’s what I’ve got to do
Gonna’ call my friend up, Greyhound
Get a ticket to see you

I’m heading down to Memphis
Gonna’ come on after you
We’ll sit down and talk through this
Yah that’s what I’m gonna’ do 

Cause you took our kids and kittens
And you took the gold-fish too
So I’m heading down to Memphis
Girl I’m comin’ after you

 I’ve been sittin’ in this apartment
But my sittin’ days are through
Got my ticket from my friend Greyhound
And I’m on my way to you 

Want to see our kids and kittens
Want to see the gold-fish too
But most of all my baby
I’m dying to see you

I’m on my way to Memphis
On my way down to see you
When I get on down to Memphis
Girl we’ll talk this thing on through

Said when I get down to Memphis
Girl we’ll talk this thing on through
Said when I get on down to Memphis
Girl we’ll talk this thing on through
