Faron Young Leavin' and Sayin' Goodbye lyrics
So many times I've told I was leavin' and oh so many times how I have tried
But sayin' your leavin's so much easier than leavin' and sayin' goodbye
Every time I'd start to go I wouldn't get ten feet
I'd go runnin' back like a runaway child that's afraid to cross the street
And my mind might tell my lips to say it's over my heart would only say it's a lie
And sayin' your leavin's so much easier than leavin' and sayin' goodbye
Yeah every time I'd start to go...
Leavin' and sayin' goodbye
