Stevie Ray Vaughan - Telephone Song Lyrics

Woke up this morning I was all alone
Saw your picture by the telephone
I was missing you oh so bad
Wish I had you here to hold
All I've got is this touch-tone phone
So I guess I'll give you a call

Operator help me please
Get thru to my baby way overseas
Time's a wastin' oh so fast
Hello baby tell me is that you
I don't know what we're gonna do
But for now I'm glad I got you on the line

Well it feels so fine
Knowing you're all right
But you're miles away
Lord it's not the same

Well I woke up this morning I was all alone
Saw your picture by the telephone
I've been missing you baby oh so bad
I love you baby with all my might
Come on home and squeeze me tight
Long distance lovin's gonna drive me out of my mind

[spoken words as music fades]

You better come on home baby
I'm about to go crazy
Im tired a huggin' my pillow at night
It sure don't kiss as good as you
Know all them pictures you gave me?
Well them lips won't move at all
And them clothes in the closet
They look a lot better on you than they do on the hangers
Besides, I just can't wait to get my arms around you
Come on home

  6. nisa türk

    its impossible not to like this song, really

  7. Mr. Blister

    I was looking for the song about telephones by the chordettes and stumbled upon this instead. Best mistake I've made in a long time.

  8. Tom Koestner

    Sounds as awesome now as when I bought that album 30 years ago. Goddamn....HITTIN that wah-wah pedal!!!

  9. Shirley Muhleisen

    Singing is so amazing! What a groove! “I’m tired of hugging that pillow at night”-how fun

  10. Toyanç Topçuoğlu

    Damn! Good old Vaughan Brothers.

  11. Shirley Muhleisen

    SRV wrote this and recorded with his brother Jimmy. In another version BB King sings Stevie’ s song in tribute to him after his death, with brother Jimmy also playing.

  12. Audrey stevens

    Every time I hear this or any other SRV solo, it makes me start dancing (awkwardly in my chair) and wish I could go back to childhood and start practicing! Love you, Stevie!😍

  13. Ed Zepplin

    This song gives me the chills every time since 89

  14. Mark Rodrigue

    SRV is one of the best!!! He exemplifies guitar music to an utmost theory, although he can't read a lick of music... So natural... so fine!!!

  15. YASSthrillER

  16. Ciara Fountain

    May the groove be with you in the after life god bless you

    Ray Denk

    TheReal PurpleCow

    A wan pedal

  23. dtreeguy

    I love it when he snaps that Strat to the back pick up and stomps the wah at the same time to launch the solo. Wow.

  24. simoGRV

    Strato sferico

    Michael Ivey

    kevin H

    One of the best unknown songs, incredible solo

    Phil Hayhoe

    It sounds like its coming out of a wall of Marshalls turned right up. Hot valves apparently, lasted three shows or so.

  34. Sally Wilson

  45. Dee Gwen

    Bad ass blues

  46. RRaferre

    but wath kind of music is????   Jazz-rock ??


    @RRaferre the groove is kinda funky

    Aaron Nichols

    Definitely funk

    Dominc Bernal

    Good music!


    Blues-funk. If you play the blues correctly, you have soul and you likely have a good bit of the funk. The three intersect quite a bit--all involve honesty (which is the key to anything soulful). The main riff is funky AF tho

    Breana Dipetrillo

    Soul and rock baby

  47. Scott Garvey

    One of his best! 

  48. Despina Luigini

    Straordinario  !!!!

  49. Dan McCarney

    Damn, Stevie just rips this. What a groove. 

  50. farber2

    my favorite

  51. specter1001

    dang what a sick jam

  52. Mary Burrell

    I have order me some Stevie Ray Vaughn for my music collection.

  53. Mary Burrell

    Stevie Ray was sexy. I heard this on the radio at work. I like this.

  54. Scott Lear

    I've lived the situation he was singing about in this song. As a matter of fact there was not a song he performed that I could not relate to.

    Michael Ivey

    Thats the thing about srv


    I'm living this situation now. Thank God for facetime. Tho the phone is a lousy kisser too.

  55. Cole Morson

    The only funk style song I can actually listen to!

  56. Dan B

    Damn these dumb ass commercials cutting the intro to the songs off! That needs to go away.

    Robert Faro

    Dan B it's in every video I try to play.

  57. garbobbage

    I don't care who ya are... the solo on this track absolutely SHREDS!! SHREDS I tellz ya!!

  58. garbobbage

    Agreed, and that's saying a ton man!!

  59. nic gonz

    One of the greatest guitarists in my opinion who else agrees?

  60. Denise Gray

    Love this song!! Can definitely relate. Swear I've heard it somewhere, just not on my current collection.
