I got my ticket for the long way round,
Two bottle of whisky for the way.
And I sure would like some sweet company,
And I'm leaving tomorrow what do you say?
When I'm Gone, when I'm gone.
Your going to miss me when I'm gone,
Your going to miss me by my hair
Your gonna miss me everywhere
Your gonna miss me when I'm gone.
I got my ticket for the long way round,
The one with the prettiest of views.
It's got mountains it's got rivers it's got
Sights to give you shivers but it sure would be prettier with you,
When I'm gone.
