Rayland Baxter – Hoot Owl Lyrics

Has it all been a lie
No I can’t believe that
Tell me what I hear isn’t true
Is the owl in the oak tree
The only one here with me
Tell me pretty baby
Are you really gonna break my heart? Is it death or livin
That scares me the most
Or is it just plain bein alone
Seems I’m always alone
When that hoot owl moans
Tell me pretty baby
Are you really gonna break my heart? All I ever wanted
Was a walk down the road
With you there holding my arm
But the hoot owl moans
For me all alone
Tell me pretty baby
Are you really gonna break my heart? Don’t call me, don’t write me
And I’ll leave you alone
So we can forget what we had
The owl can console me
With his midnight tune
BUt I don’t think I’ve ever
Felt so sad
So I draw all the curtains
And I lock all the doors
And I dream of that walk
Down the road
But the hoot owl awakes me
And a cold shiver shakes me
Tell me pretty baby
Are you really gonna break my heart?
