lyrics

Well I work hard from dusk to dawn
I've got no debts to pay
No I don't, no I don't
If I give you one more chance
You'll squander it away
Yes you will, yes you will
So I'll pack my things and head on down the road
Who knows where I'll be when the rooster crows
I'll think I'm heading down to New Orleans
And that's the best goodbye you'll get from me

I won't be home for summer
And I won't be home for fall
No I won't, no I won't
Don't make me any supper
Won't be coming home at all
No I won't, no I won't
Well the wind is blowing west and that's a sign
I've got to get the hell on with my life
See your laundry hanging on the peach tree
And that's the best goodbye you'll get from me

Drinking heal your problems
Drinking won't heal mine
No it won't, no it won't
Time will heal your wounds
Time won't heal mine
No it won't, no it won't
Well time has come for me to go away
I'm not going to spend another
Living someplace I don't want to be
And that's the best goodbye you'll get from me
That's the best goodbye you'll get from me
That's the best goodbye you're goin' to get from me
