YOU'RE GONNA MAKE ME LONESOME WHEN YOU GO


I've seen love go by my door • it's never been this close before
never been so easy or so slow
I've been shooting in the dark too long • when something isn't right it's wrong
you're gonna make me lonesome when you go

dragon clouds so high above • I've only known careless love
it won't ever hit me from below
but this time'round it's more correct • right on target so direct
you're gonna make me lonesome when you go

purple clover • Queen Anne lace • crimson hair across your face
you could make me cry if you don't know
can't remember what I was thinking of • you must've been spoiling me too much love
you're gonna make me lonesome when you go

flowers on the hillside blooming crazy
crickets talking back and forth in rhyme
blue river running slow and lazy
I could stay with you forever and never ever realize the time

situations have ended sad • relationships have all been bad
mine have been like Verlaine's and Rimbaud
but there's no way I can compare all them scenes to this affair
you're gonna make me lonesome when you go

you're gonna make me wonder what I'm doing
staying far behind without you
you're gonna make me wonder what I'm saying
you're gonna give myself some good talking to

well I'll look for you in old Honolulu • in San Fransisco and Ashtabula
you'll have to leave me now I know
but I'll see you in the sky above • in the tall grass and in the ones I love
and you're gonna make me lonesome when you go
