Mickey Newbury – Genevieve lyrics

Genevieve, Genevieve,
What does it all mean to you?
Genevieve, Genevieve,
My heart is breaking in two.
Goodbye, so long,
I will never be this hurt again.
Oh, Genevieve, Genevieve,
See how the mornin's begin.

Well, wouldn't it be nice,
If I could say, "What the hell, it's been fun."
But, Genevieve, Genevieve,
You're leavin' me leaves me undone.
So my old friend, the highway,
I will cry on your shoulder again.
Oh, Genevieve, Genevieve,
Here's where the story begins.

Laughin' like a fool,
Till I was no longer able to breathe.
A broken-down, shell of a man,
And his woman and me.
Stopped at a cafe,
They would not let us come in.
Oh, Genevieve, Genevieve,
See how the madness begins.

I just had to see you somehow.
Oh, the years have been kind, you
Were never as lovely as now.
And closing my eyes,
I can almost be with you again.
But Genevieve, Genevieve,
Here's where the story will end.
