I tried to tell you but I couldnґt find a word
Maybe, I did and you misunder stood

I guess, I thought it better for never we should be
I waited too long now, Iґm bound for Tennes see

Thereґs no use wonderin'
Things are never what they seem
No sense in turning round
Looking back won't change a thing

That ship is sailing
Itґs gone out on the sea
I waited too long
Now Iґm bound for Tennessee

Break

And when I am gone
Even long gone better, yeah
I won't forget you
Hear your voice in my head

I missed my chance to tell you
How much you meant to me
I waited too long
Now Iґm bound for Tennessee

Solo
Dobro
Mandoline

Promised not to call you
And I won't write you anymore
I lived that good life
Isnґt that what livinґs for?

Itґs not the going
Itґs the staying that worries me
Ґcause I waited too long
Now, Iґm bound for Tennessee

Yes, we waited too long
Now, Iґm bound for Tennessee
