goodbye, crazy city
you're too much for me.
give me what you owe me.
i'll take it, then i'll leave.
i never slept so fitful
as bleeding on your sheets.
well, light's outside advertising
somebody else's dreams.

goodbye, crazy city
goodbye, ugly pride.
shadowy companion
who had swaggered by my side.
we fell down together.
i tried, but i could not stand.
watched him spring up to his feet
to hold up another man's hand.

goodbye, crazy city
i thank you for your time
and all the girls and drugs i did
when i was in my prime.
man, i sure was something
the way i laid on low.
and i still got the will,
but the legs ain't there no more.

goodbye, crazy city
we sure had a run.
i really thought i'd made it
in the days when i was dumb.
i thought you were my cradle;
you held me in your hands,
squeezed out every penny,
then you cut me loose and ran.

goodbye, crazy city.
goodbye, goodbye, crazy city.

goodbye, crazy city
i'd cry if i knew how.
but you beat the tears right out of me
when i first came to town.
i'm staring out my window
watching you get small.
sitting through a turbulence
half-hoping that we fall.

goodbye, crazy city
spooled out in the dirt
like golden thread unraveling
from a cheaply _ shirt.
go find some other loser
to dangle from your ropes.
i watched you and your promises
fan away the smoke.
goodbye, crazy city
goodbye, goodbye, crazy city.
