Merle Haggard — It Meant Goodbye To Me When You Said Hello To Him lyrics

Hmm hmm hmm, hmm hmm
Hmm hmm hmm, hmm hmm

I made a big mistake when, I introduced her to my friend
Gave him a chance to dance with her
As I watched them in the crowd, I could hear my heart beat loud
'Cause it meant goodbye to me when she said hello to him

Hmm hmm hmm, hmm hmm
Hmm hmm hmm, hmm hmm

She just held on to his hand, when it was break time for the band
And it was plain to see that I'd lost out
So I slipped to wait and cry felt so low I could die
'Cause it meant goodbye to me when she said hello to him

Hmm hmm hmm, hmm hmm
Hmm hmm hmm, hmm hmm

Is there anywhere to go where a broken heart won't show
Everyone must know what's wrong with me
They can tell 'bout my ways, I go 'round lost in the days
'Cause it meant goodbye to me when she said hello to him

Hmm hmm hmm, hmm hmm
Hmm hmm hmm, hmm hmm
