Kathy Mattea - Quarter Moon

(Gillian Welch)

Well nothing new has passed this way in a long time

Maybe nothing's ever gonna come

And nothing seems to grow outside my window

I think I'd better go and get me some

Well, I want to get some of the gold in the hills

That's making people nervous

You know they get scared of the cold and the chill

Start praying God preserve us

I can't believe how long I've stayed

2 more days till I get paid

And I'll find that small town boy I'm dating

Tell him I'm done patiently waiting

Patiently waiting

I've had fun just holding hands at the movie show

And I've had good times tearing up the town

But I've spent cold nights waiting

Out front of the movie show

Thinking that half the hands that held me, held me down

Well, I want to get some of the gold in the hills

That's making people nervous

You know they get scared of the cold and the chill

Start praying God preserve us

I can't believe how long I've stayed

2 more days till I get paid

And I'll find that small town boy I'm dating

Tell him I'm done patiently waiting

Some folks never get their share of the sweet life

Some just come around a little late

I got this feeling sitting at a stop light

Seems like good things only come to those who

Hit the road when they know what they want

Well, I want to get some of the gold in the hills

That's making people nervous

You know they get scared of the cold and the chill

Start praying God preserve us

I can't believe how long I've stayed

2 more days till I get paid

And I'll find that small town boy I'm dating

Tell him I'm done patiently waiting

I'm done patiently waiting
