George Jones – I'm A Long Gone Daddy lyrics

Well, all you want to do is sit around and talk
And now I've got enough and I'm a-steppin' out
I'm leavin' now, hey, I'm leavin' now
Hey, I'm a long gone daddy I don't need you anyhow.

Oh, I've been in the doghouse for so doggone long
That when I get a kiss I think that somethin's wrong
So I'm leavin' now, hey, I'm leavin' now
'Cause, I'm a long gone daddy I don't need you anyhow.

--- Instrumental ---
(Spoken: Hey, I'm leavin now.)

I'll go find a gal that wants to treat me right
You go get yourself a man that wants to fuss and fight
So I'm leavin' now, hey, I'm leavin' now
'Cause I'm a long gone daddy I don't need you anyhow.

Lord, you start your jaws a waggin' and they never stop
You never hush your mouth until I blow my top
So I'm leavin' now, hey, I'm leavin' now
Yeah, I'm a long gone daddy I don't need you anyhow.

--- Instrumental ---
(Spoken: Move on awhile.)

I remember back when you were nice and sweet
Things have changed you'd rather fight than eat
So I'm leavin' now, yeah, I'm leavin' now
'Cause I'm a long gone daddy I don't need you anyhow.

Yeah, I'm gonna do some ridin' on the midnight train
I'm taking ev'rything except my ball and chain
Well, I'm leavin' now, I'm leavin' now
'Cause I'm a long gone daddy I don't need you anyhow.

Yeah, I'm a long gone daddy I don't need you anyhow...
