Verse 1

They say that you left town this morning
You didn’t tell me goodbye
Why did God ever make me
And why can’t I lay down and die

After loving you for so long dear
Life alone would be so blue
I’d rather die young and be forgotten
Than live to grow old loving you

Verse 2
I wondered alone with the nightlife
Making my rounds like the rest
Another has the love that I treasured
He wanted the one I love best
