Lyrics:
One of these days and it won't be long
You're gonna call my name and I'll be gone
Fare thee well honey, fare thee well
Well you don't know you don't know my mind
When you see me laughing baby it's to keep me from crying
Fare thee well honey fare thee well
God knows I tried I done my best
But I guess I'm just a rambler like all the rest
Fare thee well, fare thee well oh honey, honey fare thee well
I don't know where, don't know where I'm bound
Keep lookin for something I ain't never found
Fare thee well oh honey, honey, honey, honey fare thee well
There is just one thing that troubles my mind
And that's leaving you darling
Leaving you here behind
Fare thee well oh honey, honey fare thee well
Bye bye baby, pretty baby bye bye, your daddy's gone
Your daddy's gone from you
Fare thee well, honey, honey, honey fare thee well
