Faron Young — Leavin And Sayin Goodbye lyrics

(Jeannie Seely)
So many times I've told you I was leavin'
And oh, so many times how I have tried
But sayin' your leavin's so much easier
Than leavin' and sayin' goodbye.
Every time I'd start to go
I wouldn't get ten feet
I'd go runnin' back like a runaway child
That's afraid to cross the street.
And my mind might tell my lips to say it's over
My heart would only say it's a lie
And sayin' your leavin's so much easier
Than leavin' and sayin' goodbye.
--- Instrumental ---
Yeah, every time I'd start to go
I wouldn't get ten feet
I'd go runnin' back like a runaway child
That's afraid to cross the street.
And my mind might tell my lips to say it's over
My heart would only say it's a lie
And sayin' your leavin's so much easier
Than leavin' and sayin' goodbye.
Leavin' and sayin' goodbye...
