Hayes Carll – Bye Bye Baby lyrics

You laughed and called me lucky for having you around
And you stepped up to the bar and started swaying
The crowd all sang Ophelia as we drank another round
Oh bye bye, bye bye baby
The rain fell on the window as we watched the sailors dance
You kissed my hand and said you were beside me
I held on in a moment when I thought there was a chance
Oh bye bye, bye bye baby
Way out in the distance where the waters fade to blue
You used to say tomorrow was a foolish thing to do
I thought I'd seen it all before but nothing quite like you
Oh bye bye, bye bye baby
I'd read to you the letters that had blown in from the west
And we'd whisper of the dreams that we'd been saving
You said you'd have it all, nothing more, nothing less
Oh bye bye, bye bye baby
Now there's an emptiness standing at the door
Trying to take me back to the way I was before
I used to feel lonely but it's not that way no more
Oh bye bye, bye bye baby
Now the drunks have turned to strangers
And the stars are out of tune
As I think about the one who might have saved me
I know you're out there somewhere between the highway and the moon
Oh bye bye, bye bye baby
Oh bye bye, bye bye baby
