Just Waiting.
John Prine.
Album: For Better, Or Worse.

Intro: G C D G
G    
The old maid's a waiting for leap year to come, 
    C
The crooner's just waiting to sing
D
The old cow's standing by the Bull Durham sign, 
                                   G
Just waiting for the grass to turn green
G
The bar-fly's waitin' for an easy mark, 
    C                                   D
The hitchhiker's just waiting for a ride
                                     D
The lifetimer's waiting for a prison break, 
                  G
The beachcomber's waiting for the tide

G
Farmer's daughter's waiting for the salesman,
C
To take her into town
D
The city slicker's waiting for the country boy, 
                     G
To lay all his money down
G
You know everything comes to standstill,
      C
Ain't nothing seems to make a turn
D
Worm must be waiting for the early bird, 
                         	  	       G
I guess the early bird's waiting on a worm

                                C
Nobody wants to do nothing just waiting,
C
To get a finger in the pie
D
Waiting for a call for a big quiz show,
                                    G
Or a waiting for some rich uncle to die
G
Katy she's waiting at the garden gate,
C                                
Moonshiner's waiting at the still
    D
The gambler's still waiting for that Ace in the hole,
                               G
And I Jack's still waiting for Jill

G
Everybody's waiting for something,
    C
But nothing seems to turn out right
          D
Cause the night shift's waiting for morning,
                                      G
And the burglar he's just waiting for night
G
The congregation's waiting for the preacher,
    C
The preacher's just waiting for the groom
    D
The groom's just waiting for the June bride,
                                 G   
And the bride's just waiting for June
                               D
Sunflower's waiting for the sunshine,
C                            
Violet's just waiting for dew
D
Bee's just waiting for honey,
n/c                            G  Am7 G
And honey I'm just waiting for you.
