George Jones — A Goodbye Joke lyrics

No, she not gone forever
She's just playing one of her games
And tonight when I get home
Everything will be the same.

'Cause when I woke up this morning
Yes, I found her goodbye note
It just a game she's plays
It just a goodbye joke.

She's just goin' downtown shopping
She'll bring me back some sporty clothes
'Cause I'm always on her mind
No matter where she plans to go.

If I thought she was gone forever
Lord, I'd find me a hangin' rope
That's why I'm drifting now
It's just a goodbye joke.

Ain't it funny the sense of humor
A woman can have sometimes
Especially that lovely woman of mine.

Hey, bartender won't you bring me a drink
'Cause I still like?
On the words she wrote
In her little goodbye joke...
