It ain't no use to sit and wonder why, babe
It don't matter, anyhow
And it ain't no use to sit and wonder why, babe
If you don't know by now
When the rooster crows at the break of dawn
Look out your window and I'll be gone
You're the reason I'm traveling on
Don't think twice, it's all right

It ain't no use in turning on your light, babe
Light I never known
It ain't no use in turning on your light, babe
I'm on the dark side of the road
Still I wish there was something you would do or say
To try and make me change my mind and stay
We never did too much talking anyway
Don't think twice, it's all right

I'm walking down that long, lonesome road, babe
Where I'm bound, I can't tell
But goodbye is too good a word, gal
So I'll just say, "Fare-thee-well"
I ain't saying you treated me unkind
You could have done better, but I don't mind
You just sort of wasted my precious time
Don't think twice, it's all right

It ain't no use in calling out my name, gal
Like you never did before
It ain't no use in calling out my name, gal
I can't hear you anymore
I'm thinking and wondering all the way down the road
I once loved a woman, a child I'm told
I gave her my heart but she wanted my soul
Don't think twice, it's all right
