He was just another boy from Georgia
Playing in a rock and roll band
I was living in L.A. in a Hollywood way
Then I met him and he loved me
We got married

CHORUS:
Now he's too far gone to hold me
Too far gone doesn't want to know me
Too far gone and he doesn't really know
No he'll never get to know his son

Now I know I am a stubborn woman
But I knew he was a passionate man
Though our feelings were intense
Our problems were a menace
But we tried hard and we held on
But we let it go

Chorus

It's hard to cut it loose
But only one man holds the key to what
I did to many men finally done to me
Now I'm trying not to fall to pieces
But I think about him every day
When I lay down by his side
Tears of love would fill my eyes
Ooh I loved him and he loved me
But we let it go

Too far gone too far gone
And he doesn't really know
God he'll never get to know his son, his son
