No One Here By That Name

(Donna Beasley)
Home Canned Beats (SESAC)

Mailman, please take back these letters from my box

There’s no one here by that name

He didn’t leave a forwarding address

There’s nothing here he wants to claim

 

Each day the telephone keeps ringing off the wall

There is no man of the house, I explain

I don’t have a number where he can be found

And there’s no one here by that name

 

He used to answer to “darlin”

But I called today and no one came

Now it’s a word that means nothing

‘Cause there’s no one here by that name

 

She was laughing when she said it

I was crying just the same

Our baby spoke her first word today

But there’s no one here by that name

 

No, he gave no answer

When she called to him so plain

Now all our words mean nothing

When there’s no one here by that name

No, he gave no answer

When she called him by his name

Now all our words they mean nothing

When there’s no one here by that name

Oh, no there’s no one here by that name
