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 somethings 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 but you don't know
I don't remember what I was thinking of
You might be spoiling me with too much of love honey
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 a rhyme
The blue river running slow and lazy
I could stay with you forever
And never realize that 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
And you're gonna make me lonesome when you go

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

And 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
