They were sitting on his tailgate
And she was lovin' on his roughneck
And she was talking about running away
And he was puffin' on a cigarette
Just thinkin' (huh)
How am I gonna say goodbye?

He said, girl you got it good here
And you don't need to mess with
A guy going nowhere
She said how's about Texas?
He got up and shook his head
Then he said, ain't you been listening?
It's never gonna work out
And I think it'd be a good time now to

Let me go
You don't need me baby
Stop holding on the way you are
Don't you know I'm no good for you
And it'll only break your heart
If you don't
Let me go

He said other than a dreamer
I ain't nothin' but a drifter
You could do a lot better
Then leaned over and he kissed her
He said you got another year of college
And a good momma and a daddy
And me, I got $93 in this old '82 Chevy

So let me go
You don't need me baby
Stop holding on the way you are
Don't you know I'm no good for you
And it'll only break your heart
If you don't
Let me go

She said, nice try
But you can't hide behind those shades there on your face
Ya see I don't think you're all that tough
I just think you're scared of love
And I think I won't take up that much space

So let me go
Take me with you baby
I belong where you are
We both know that you're not as strong as you think you are

Let me go
Take me with you baby
I belong where you are
Don't you know I'm so good for you
And it'll only break your heart
Down the road
If you don't
Let me go
With you baby

Let me go
With you baby
Just let me go

    This guy thinks he wont do anything but hold the girl back from what she could be and he doesnt want that because he loves her but the girl doesnt care and wants to take that chance with the guy

    The meaning of let me go to me is, a guy who is trying to do right by his girl. As he knows he will only hurt her down the road. Which he doesn't want to do. She sees he is scared of love & she isn't ready or willing to let him go. She would go through a heartache if she had to find love with her man.
