I filled my ol' car up with gas
North to Chicago I was goin'
Just drove ten miles and turned around
I couldn't leave without you knowin'.

I had to see you one last time
And be with you once before I'll go
To talk with you just one more time
And then I'm bound north to Chicago.

Still I wish there's something you would say
To make me change my mind and stay
But I guess it's gotta be this way
Then I guess I'm bound north to Chicago.

Please don't be angry that I've come
I know you didn't want to see me
I know I said I wouldn't call and I tried my best
Love, please believe me.

Well, everything I own is in my car
You can see I'm leavin' so you must know
I only come to say goodbye
And then I'm bound north to Chicago.

Still I wish there's something you would say
To make me change my mind and stay
But I guess it's gotta be this way
Then I guess I'm bound north to Chicago.

(Ah Lord, that woman done me a fool of little ol' Hank
And I'm just gonna be movin' on north to Chicago, yeah...)
