Dickey Lee – I'll Be Leaving Alone lyrics

Yes I'll buy you a drink if you'd like me to I might even dance a slow one with you
Lord knows you're a looker and honey what's more
It's not hard to see what you're looking for
You're as tempting a woman as I've ever seen
But there's someone in Tulsa who's trusting in me
She's the mother of my children I'm the rock she leans on
So thank you but no thank you I'll be leaving alone
[ steel ]
As we dance in the shadows you're holding me tight
I can feel the invitation I see in your eyes
And the soft light and the music and the wine's rosey glow
Ain't making it easy for me to say no
Cause you're as tempting a woman...
Thank you but no thank you I'll be leaving alone
