Status Quo – Dear John lyrics

( Gustafson / Macauley )

Everybody was talking to me
Like I was a child
In their words I could hear them saying
It's just a matter of time
Anyway it's a long long race been run
Anyway it's a sad sad song been sung

Dear John goodbye she said
Sometimes it's hard she said
Dear John I've broken away

Vanity is hard old lady
You can't read her mind
I'm a fool but I don't fool easy
While you're foolin' around
Anyway I can hold my own tonight
I admit I was wrong and you where right

Dear John Goodbye she said
Sometimes it's hard she said
Dear John I've broken away

Dear John goodbye she said
Sometimes it's hard she said
Dear John I've broken away

Dear John goodbye she said
Sometimes it's hard she said
Dear John I've broken away

Everybody was talking to me
Like I was a child
In their words I could hear them saying
It's just a matter of time
Anyway it's a long long race been run
Anyway it's a sad sad song been sung

Dear John goodbye she said
Sometimes it's hard she said
Dear John I've broken away

Dear John goodbye she said
Sometimes it's hard she said
Dear John I've broken away

Dear John goodbye she said
Sometimes..
