(Jerry Reed Hubbard)
Oh well, it's long gone, long gone
You got my baby and you're long gone
But I'll be a hangin' around
I know you're gonna put her down
She'll need someone that's true
When she wakes up one day
To find you're long gone, long gone.
You just wandered into town
Took her and you started messin' around, with my baby
You stole her heart 'cause she ain't used to your kind.
With your fancy clothes and your uptown style
It didn't take you but a little while to get your way
'Cause your pretty little lies she couldn't see behind.
And now it's long gone, long gone
You got my baby and you're long gone
But I'll be a hangin' around
I know you're gonna put her down
She'll need someone that's true
When she wakes up one day
To find you're long gone, long gone.
--- Instrumental ---
Well, a man in me would like to fight
To take you down by the river tonight
And rearrange your face
But that would make her hate the site of me.
So there's nothing left for me to do
Standin', watchin' that, the likes of me
Hurt the girl I love while she's too much
In love with you to see.
Oh well, it's long gone, long gone
You got my baby and you're long gone
But I'll be a hangin' around
I know you're gonna put her down
She'll need someone that's true
When she wakes up one day
To find you're long gone, long gone...
