Gene Watson – Should I Come Home (Or Should I Go Crazy) Lyrics

I wonder if you’ve had the time it takes to think it over
And sort out all the feel-ings in your mind
Some-times I think you’ve found some-one to do your thinking for you
‘Cause lately you’ve been show-in’ all the signs
Should I come home or should I go cra-zy
I’m begging you please make up your mind
If you love me, then think it all o-ver
Make up your mind, or I’ll lose mine
Last night when I came by I rang the bell and no one answered
But I heard voices whisper through the door
Now I’m not sure if any-one was home to do the talk-ing
‘Cause lately I hear voices more and more
Should I come home or should I go cra-zy
I’m begging you please make up your mind
If you love me, then think it all o-ver
Make up your mind, or I’ll lose mine
