I'm goin', yes I'm goin', yes I'm goin' away
I finally made up my mind
I'm leavin', yes I'm leavin', yes I'm leavin' today
Leavin' the good life behind.
I can never be the kind of man you want me to be
Don't cry, little darlin', don't cry
You don't know what this kind of life is doin' to me
Goodbye, little darlin', goodbye.
Wastin' away, wastin' away
Too much of nothin' every day
Wastin' away, wastin' away
Too much of nothin' every day
Once upon a time you would've asked me to stay
I know, little darlin', I know
Now I get the feeling you don't care anyway
It shows, little darlin', it shows.
Wastin' away, wastin' away
Too much of nothin' every day
Wastin' away, wastin' away
Too much of nothin' every day
I'm goin', yes I'm goin', yes I'm goin' away
I finally made up my mind
I'm leavin', yes I'm leavin', yes I'm leavin' today
Leavin' the good life behind.
Wastin' away, wastin' away
Too much of nothin' every day
Wastin' away, wastin' away
Too much of nothin' every day
Wastin' away, wastin' away
Wastin' away, wastin' away
