Farewell, I’m Bound To Leave You

There’s a lonely road through town; I drive it late with the radio down
Near the church real close to dawn, the Blackbirds gather like a cloud
I went to my window tonight and watched for the blackbirds in flight.

Farewell, I’m bound To Leave you, leave you in the morning light.
Farewell, I’m bound to leave you, leave you in the bye and bye.

I’ve a woman that’s my one true friend, she said she’ll stay with me ‘til the end
And I’ve a child that calls my name from the reaches of her bed.
I went to my window tonight and watched for the blackbirds in flight.

Farewell, I’m Bound To Leave you, leave you in the morning light.
Farewell, I’m bound to leave you, leave you in the bye and bye.
