5. When Im Gone
Please don't talk about it when I'm gone
Rumors started that you can't live down
Don't you say a word
The folks will overhear you
They're gonna know which way I've gone

I took the car and I snuck out of town
Delayed vacation sort of on my own
If anyone should ask you
You tell 'em that I had to
They can all let their eyebrows down now

I'd like to put your feet up take your time
Watch the morning wake up in your eyes
And when there's too much hustle
I'd take your hand and run to
Someplace where a child can
Find his own mind

There ain't nothin' about you
Nothing that I don't like
It's just there's somethin' about you
Keeps you on my mind
I'd like I'd like to be your

Bicycle seat down the road of life
Make it to heaven on a changing line
Roadhouse hoodlums neon lights and moonsigns
The music's fine if it moves your behind

Please don't talk about it when I'm gone
Rumors started that you can't live down
I catch you in and
It comes our way again
It ain't the average daily door to door, no
It's something more
