I Just Woke You Up To Say Goodbye

I just woke you up to say goodbye

 

 

 

I remember that little country church

 

Where we were once wed yes oh my

 

Remember that old Hank Williams song that said

 

I’m so lonesome I could cry

 

Well I just woke you up to say goodbye

 

I know you said my love was all that you needed

 

But when things got tough you didn’t even try

 

You said you would love me forever

 

Or until the day that you would die

 

Well that may be true honey because

 

I still love you and that’s no lie

 

Old George Jones sang

 

Why baby why you make me cry baby cry

 

Was all your sweet talk and promises nothing more than a lie

 

You see my suitcase there by the door

 

So don’t even ask me why

 

I will be traveling down that old country road

 

That stretches on so long it seems to reach the sky

 

I am going where I can have a new life 

And you won't ever make me cry
