Tommy Collins – I'll Be Gone lyrics

I've made up my mind
You've laughed at me your last time
If you think I'm ever coming back you're wrong
Take the clothes from the line
Separate yours from mine
When I board in the morning I'll be gone.

Well, a man's got his pride
And his feeling inside
I won't stay around to be treated wrong
Cheeio too-da-loo
I'm leavin' it with you
When the power hits the drivers I'll be gone.

In a way I'm pretty glad
In a way I guess I'm sad
But I'll be on that train rollin' on
Now don't try to ride
I'll be movin' day and night
Before the sun make a shadow I'll be gone.

I'll be gone.
I'll be gone.
Before the sun make a shadow I'll be gone.


I don't have a yen*
To get tied down again
I can buy your kind with a song
A man never knows
A Woman I suppose
But I know for sure, shortly I'll be gone.

I remember back when
I tried to warn you then
But you knew it all and now you're on your own
Your chances were weighed
You never made the grade
When the smoke fills the valley I'll be gone

I'm leaving behind
The one that wrecked my mind
The shiny rails inportant to my home
When you find out your wrong
I'll be movin' right along
When I board in the mornin' I'll be gone.

I'll be gone.
I'll be gone.
When I board in the mornin' I'll be gone.
