You were sitting on his tailgate
She was loving on his roughneck
She was talking bout running away
While he was puffin on a cigarette
And just thinking
How am I gonna say goodbye

He said girl you got it good here
You don't need to mess with
A guy going nowhere
She said how's about Texas?
He got up and shook his head
Then said
Ain't ya been listening
It's never gonna work out
And I think it'd be a good time now
To let me go

You don't need me baby
Stop holding on the way you are
Don't you know I'm no good for you
And it'll only break your heart
If you don't let me go

He said other than a dreamer
I ain't nothing but a drifter
You could do a lot better
He leaned over and he kissed her
He said you'd got another year of college
And a good momma and a daddy
And me I got 93 dollars and this old '82 Chevy

So let me go
You don't need me baby
Stop holding on the way you are
Don't you know I'm no good for you
And it'll only break your heart
If you don't let me go

She said nice try
But you can't hide behind those shades there on your face
See I don't think you're all that tough
I just think you're scared of love
And I think I won't take up that much space

So let me go
Take me with ya baby
It's so cold outside your arms
And we both know that you're not as strong
As you think you are

So let me go take me with ya baby
I'm alone where you are
We both know I'm so good for you
And it'll only break ya heart
Down the road if you don't let me go
With ya baby

Let me go
