I hear you leavin' soon in the mornin'
What did you do to the lady
That she's gonna have to send you away?
You don't have to say you're sorry
If you done it just for the spite
Or did you do it just for the glory?
Like a stranger you turned your back
Left your keys and gone to pack
Bear in mind who's to blame an' all the shame
She really cared, the time she spared and the home you shared
I can hear the whistle blowin'
Yes, that train is comin' and soon you'll be goin'
Let us not bow our heads for we won't be complainin'
Life has been good to us all even when that sky is rainin'
To take it like a grain of salt is all I can do, it's no one's fault
Makes no difference if we fade away
It's just as it was, it's much too cold for me to stay
Goodbye to that country home
So long to a lady I have known
Farewell to my other side
I'd best just take it in stride
You'll learn to find your place
I can see it in your smile
And yes, I can see it in your face
The memories will linger on
The good old days they're all gone
Oh, lonesome servant can't you see
We're still one and the same, just you and me
