I gotta request for this one so here goes.....
Telephone Romeo
Written By Jason Boland
Artist Jason Boland and the Stragglers
Cd Pearl Snaps
From Zac Robinson (zacrobinson at

The song is in the key of A
Intro and bridge 
A     E     F#m     D     A     E     D (step down to A) A
A     E     F#m     D     A     E     D 
             A          E            F#m              A 
We kept our parting connected by the same stretch of road
     D            A                  E 
And Iím tired of packing round this heavy load
     F#m           A                  E      A 
It started out a stream but then the levee fell
          D          A               E 
When the rain maker had some extra seed to sell
Well I just thought id call and se whatís going on
Did the hill country flatten out since Iíve been gone
Are the fields all painted up in red and blue
Are you thinking of me the times Iím thinking of you
                    D                  A 
Well I just wanna drink Ďtil Iím not thirsty
                   E                 A 
And I just wanna sleep Ďtil Iím not tired
               D                       A   A/F#   E 
I just wanna drive till I run out of money
F#m                  A    E                      (Bridge) 
I donít wanna be no Romeo on the telephone wire
Could we dream up a reason for a rendezvous
Well the yanks are in town and we got nothing to do
The neighbors are gone and youíre feeling alone
You canít kiss somebody on the telephone
Well did you go out last night and was it just a friend
Would you care if I showed up there at 6 AM
And drive all day with the top pulled down
We could stay in all night or we could paint the town
I guess Iíd better go now its getting too late
Thereís a party downstairs and I thought I heard something break
I bid you goodnight and hope to see you soon
Maybe later on this afternoon
And thats it.   Any comments or requests, please e-mail zacrobinson at   or IM zactamu

first verse is "We're kept apart and connected".
-klansman | 8/26/2004
you are right it is "we kept the party connected"
-jennintexas | 11/2/2004
The step down to A is on the B string:

3-2-0 then strum A.
-jpranger19 | 11/8/2004
I'm almost certain it's "kept the party connected by the same stretch of road"...but I'll ask Jason what is correct on Tuesday November 30th at the Wormy Dog Saloon in Bricktown OKC. I'll ask him after I get up and play Boys From Oklahoma with them.
-phaseninety | 11/22/2004
I'm callin bs on this one :P

-texasmusic | 12/6/2004
it is definately 100% "we're kept apart and connected"
-pgfan4life | 12/30/2004
i think the step-down to a is actually on the b string and goes 3-2-0 right after your strum the d chord

-kfr12ap | 7/24/2005
i think the step-down to A is actually on the B string and goes 3-2-0 right after your strum the d chord and when you strike 0 just shape an A chord

-kfr12ap | 7/24/2005
The words on the first line are actually "If the heart ain't connected by the same stretch of road"
-rab05 | 8/5/2005
I think its "We kept this heart ache connected" and if it's not it should be.
-drakeblake | 8/21/2005
I coulda sworn it was "I have a pancake errected"...
-texasmusic | 1/4/2006
