It takes an awful lot to get me down but it only
Took one word from her goodbye Takes an awful lot
To make me cry it only took one word from her
Goodbye What's wrong with me why couldn't I see
The lonely nights for her would be too long I'm
Here she's gone Takes an awful lot to make me cry
It only took one word from her goodbye [ piano ]
How can one word cut you so deep And leave you
With an ugly scar for life cut you like a knife
Takes an awful lot to bring me down it only took
One word from her goodbye Goodbye goodbye
