I'll Be Gone
Dwight Yoakam Lyrics


I watch as you take off your clothes and slip under the sheets
Then I turn and kick the boots off my feet there's no need to speak
Girl, beauty like yours is hard to beat

But I'll be gone in the morning, in the morning I'll be gone
'Cause I'm not one for hanging on
Please don't think that you done something wrong
In the morning when you wake and find me gone
Just a look from those fiery eyes can all but erase
The memory of any other's face
And the passion they unleash could cause me to misplace
And lose all track of time without a trace

But I'll be gone in the morning, in the morning I'll be gone
'Cause I'm not the one for hanging on
Please don't think that you done something wrong
In the morning when you wake and find me gone

The sun intrudes and throws across the room its golden tracks
Shake the dreams, now it's back to facts
As I turn to leave I know you had what so many lack
Maybe some day that'll bring me back

But I'll be gone in the morning, in the morning I'll be gone
'Cause I'm not one for hanging on
Please don't think that you done something wrong
In the morning when you wake and find me gone

But I'll be gone in the morning, in the morning I'll be gone
'Cause I'm not one for hanging on
Please don't think that you done something wrong
In the morning when you wake and find me gone
In the morning when you wake and find me gone
