Thanks, Jeep..

Let's see if I can remember the words:

"There's a moon out Tonight, so won't you come on over?
Your Momma don't have to know
I got a couple of beers in the refrigerator, got the Opry on the radio
We can sit on the steps and watch the stars come out. Only be you and me
Or we can go cavort on the davenport, and no one will ever see

I'll be sitting here waiting in my rocking chair, while you're walking on down the road
I put out the cat, I got the dog tied up, I got the lights turned way down low
I got a part in my hair, I got my shoes shined up, I even wore a brand new shirt
So honey don't be late, 'cause I can hardly wait, you know I rushed right home from work

When the evening is over, then I'll take you home, or at least 'nto the corner store
Everyone will be sleeping, even Murphy's dog will be curled up on the kitchen floor
And old Mrs. Johnson 'll have her blinds all drawn, so we can wave as we walk on by
And then it's long last kiss, 'cause it will have to last, till I see you next Friday night

The song is just called Davenport, but I guess the guitar picking is kinda bluesy. Glad you like it..
