(g. rossington, j. & d. van zant)

My baby came home late last night
I said girl I gotta talk to you
I've been drinkin' with the man next door
He said he's been singin' with you
Whoever's tellin' lies it's time to say bye-bye
You know my mama didn't raise no fool

(chorus)
You're gonna walk out that door you'll never see me anymore
Tell you what I'm gonna do
I'm gonna love ya' just one more time
I'd love to see what you've got
I don't care if it takes all night
Gonna make you remember for the rest of your life oh baby
We had a good thing a good thing goin'
But ain't been seein' eye to eye
You had a good thing but it's all over
Might as well wave and say goodbye

It's easy to see the guilt in your eyes
Girl I want you to tell me the truth
Was he worth the risk and all the trouble he's caused
Now it comes down to me and you
You thought I was blind when you were gone all the time
Playin' me for a fool

(repeat chorus)

We had a good thing goin' baby but it's all over

Good thing, good thing goin'.......
