So long, my friend
This town's been eating you alive
You left a trail of broken hearts
Most of which never survived

And your friends are waiting
Waiting by your door
They're anticipating
You ain't coming back any more

This old town is not the same
This old town is not the same
This dirty backwater town
Still carries your name

An old grey-haired woman
Those letters never arrived
Well I hear it's cold in Amsterdam
Man, I hope that you thrive

This old town is not the same
This old town is not the same
This dirty backwater town
Still carries your name

You said you want it
Man, I hope that you're right
This town is getting colder
But I know you'll survive

Well, I hear it's cold out there
And I really know the change
This dirty little town
We thought would always stay the same

This old town is not the same
This old town is not the same
This dirty backwater town
Still carries your name
