The old gang's gone I'm the only one that's left
And I guess that it's about time I moved on out myself

Cause there ain't no use in hanging round a town that's grown so cold
With it's used-to-be's and it's memories it makes a man feel old
My friends have wed and some are dead and some are far away
From the one horse town that we ran around and the dreams of yesterday
The old gang's gone...

Johnny Green's in Jacksonville he's a doctor now you know
Shaky Sam's in VietNam he volunteered to go
Sandie lives in Tennessee and Mary's moved to Maine
And I don't guess that I'll ever see the likes of them again
The old gang's gone...
The old gang's gone...
