I've seen love go by my door, it's never been this close before,
It's never been so easy or so slow.
I've been sooting in the dark too long, when something's not right it's wrong.
You're gonna make me lonesome when you go.

Purple clover, Queen Anne's Lace, crimson hair across your face,
You could make me cry if you don't know .
I don't remember when I was thinking of, you might be spoiling me with too much love,
You're gonna make me lonesome when you go .

There are dragon cloud so high above, I have only know careless love.
It always hit me front below .
But this time 'round it's more correct, it's right on target and so direct.
You're gonna make me lonesome when you go .

Flowers on the hillside blowing crazy.
Crickets talking back and forth in rhyme.
Blue river running slow and lazy.
I could stay with you for ever , and never realize the time .

But situations have ended sad , relationships have all been bad ,
Mine have been like Verlaine's and Rimbaud's
But there's no way I can compare all them scenes with this affair, honey
You're gonna make me lonesome when you go .

Oh, you're gonna make me wonder what I'm doing,
Staying far behing without you.
You're gonna make me wonder what I'm saying ,
You're gonna make me give myself a good talking to .

I will I look for you in Honolulu , San Fransisco , Ashtabula ,
You're gonna have to leave me now, I know.
But I'll see you in the skies above , in the tall grass and the ones I love
You're gonna make me lonesome when you go .
You're gonna make me lonesome when you go .
You're gonna make me lonesome .
