It's time to leave so let me go
I've just been wasting time
I'll call you in a year or so
If I can spare a dime.

We couldn't change the bad to good
The good Lord knows we tried
And a one way love just ain't no good
And I can't live a lie.

So I'll just hit the road a cryin' low
I'll walk so fast you'll never know
I'm cryin' and dyin'
Before one teardrop hits the ground
I'll be halfway across this town and gone.

--- Instrumental ---

Perhaps in time the hurt will heal
If I just walk away
I love you so I hate to go
But there's no other way
So I'll just hit the road.

Before one teardrop hits the ground
I'll be halfway across this town and gone...
