I'll be leaving just as soon as I gather my things
I'll be going and I ain't coming back here again
Oh my darling one, hope you miss me when I am gone
But I know that you will be better off on your own
Now my darling, I hope you understand
The best thing I could do for you is to be leaving
When the morning comes, I will be gone
When the new day breaks, child, you will be on your own
Now my darling girl, I did love you true
But I could not be good to you
And love you too
And love you too

We had good days, they were few and far in between
I was just a kid when you needed a man out of me
But I hung around, hoping one day that I would grow
Into the coat of a suit that I ain't never worn
Now my darling, I hope you understand
The best thing I could do for you is to be leaving
So when that morning comes, I will be gone
When your new day breaks, child, you will be on your own
Now my darling one, I did love you true
But I could not be good to you
And love you too

When that morning comes, I will be gone
When your new day breaks, child, you will be on your own
Now my darling one, I did love you true
But I could not be good to you
I could not be good to you
And love you too
And love you too
