You say you're clearing out
The devil's in your eyes
No time to walk, no time to talk, no time for long goodbyes
The ticket's in your hand.
You've made that final call
The hardwood's flying by like punches in a barrrom brawl

We made a mess of things
It makes no difference now
Let's chalk it all up to the blues
Little girl, think it over one time
Little girl, think it over one time
Little girl, think it over one time
Before you break in your walking shoes

I am just what I am
I won't apologize
So if you go you're sure to know you'll have to come to realize
Love don't walk away
Only people do
So if you go or if you stay you know I'll keep on loving you

We made a mess of things
It makes no difference now
Let's chalk it all up to the blues
Little girl, think it over one time
Little girl, think it over one time
Little girl, think it over one time
Before you break in your walking shoes

You made the hard times sing
You made the miles go by
We've broken both our wings
But still we've had the will to fly
It ain't the memories that make me talk this way
It's more like someone pulled the plug before we ever saw the play

We made a mess of things
It makes no difference now
Let's chalk it all up to the blues
Little girl, think it over one time
Little girl, think it over one time
Little girl, think it over one time
Before you break in your walking shoes

I've read a thousand books
I've been behind the wheel
I've known you all my life but still I can't feel how you feel
It's only you for me
Just like that whooping crane
Who has one wife for all his life
And if she dies he'll do the same

We made a mess of things
It makes no difference now
Let's chalk it all up to the blues
Little girl, think it over one time
Little girl, think it over one time
Little girl, think it over one time
Before you break in your walking shoes

    The hard words flying by....

    Great song. One of my favorites.

    It's about one of those arguments you know a relationship probably just can't recover from. The kind where too much is said that can't be taken back, and it just seems like the only possible outcome is just to leave, so the woman wants to leave but the guy is still trying to convince her to stay.
