It's Over
Jimmie Rodgers Lyrics


Came in last night at half past ten
That baby of mine wouldn't let me in
So move it on over (move it on over)
Move it on over (move it on over)
Move over little dog 'cause the big dog's moving in

She's changed the lock on my front door
My door key don't fit no more
So get it on over (move it on over)
Scoot it on over (move it on over)
Move over skinny dog 'cause the fat dog's moving in

The dog house here is mighty small
But it's better than no house at all
So ease it on over (move it on over)
Drag it on over (move it on over)
Move over old dog 'cause a new dog's moving in

She told me not to play around
But I done let the deal go down
So pack it on over (move it on over)
Tote it on over (move it on over)
Move over nice dog 'cause a mad dog's moving in

She warned me once, she warned me twice
But I don't take no one's advice
So scratch it on over (move it on over)
Shake it on over (move it on over)
Move over short dog 'cause a tall dog's moving in

She'll crawl back to me on her knees
I'll be busy scratching fleas
So slide it on over (move it on over)
Sneak it on over (move it on over)
Move over good dog 'cause a mad dog's moving in

Remember pup, before you whine
That side's yours and this side's mine
So shove it on over (move it on over)
Sweep it on over (move it on over)
Move over cold dog 'cause a hot dog's moving in

If time were not a moving thing
and I could make it stay
This hour of love we share would
always be, there'd be no coming day
to shine a morning light to make us
realize our night is over.

When you walk away from me there is no
place to put my hand, except to shade my eyes
against the sun that rises or the land
I watch you walk away somehow if have
to let you go now
It's over

If you knew just how I really feel
you might return and yet, there are so
many times that people have to love than forget
Though there might have been a way
I have to force myself to say
It's over

So I turn my back
turn my collar to the wind
move along in silence trying not
to think at all
I send my feet before me, walk
the silent street before me.
It's over

If time were not a moving thing
and I could make it stay
This hour of love we share would
always be, there'd be no coming day
to shine a morning light, to make us
realize our night is over.
Its over

This was one powerful song. I think Jimmy Rodgers was about the most underestimated performer from 57 to 67 and is still not given his due credit to this day. Totally unique in the annals of pop music history;   there was , really, no one quite like him.

Shelley Street

Ãbsolutely beautiful 👏

Tommy Hunt

Si mply the best.
What a great voice
Says Tommy hunt.

Helen Nikki

Very well said. He deserves so much more! ... Accolades.

Debby Stacy

No one like him..never will be🌹

nape jack

Yes, great singer!

Cathy Dombrovske

All those roads not taken . . . what a beautiful, bittersweet song, and how movingly he sings it.

QuentinQuatermass

Beautiful song! People recognize Jimmie's hits but don't realize his less successful songs are even better. For example, The World I Used To Know from 1964, his best record.

Debby Stacy

I wholeheartedly agree Gloria!🌹

Gloria Forrest

That song was okay, as his voice is so beautiful, BUT I don't dig the "big orchestra" violins competing with his voice. The simplicity of the guitar picking is a perfect background for his angelic voice. It's Over is BY FAR his best song.
