An empty house is hard to bear Lonesome's falling everywhere Without you there's no light coming in That lucky dog jumped the fence Ain't seen him around here since And I don't guess I ever will again It didn't bother me any, I was good to that dog And just like you I'm gonna have to learn to let him go Leaving me was one thing Carla Why'd you have to leave so slow? Slow and shifty backing out You were trying to fill my head with doubt You nearly had me walking out on you About the oldest trick to be Playing on someone as old as me That can not be the best that you can do It didn't bother me any when he come around I just wish I hadn't been the last guy in town to know I didn't mind you walking away What hurt was how you walked so slow You know, you go You know that was so underhanded Grabbing him just as you landed After holding me the whole time you fell You tell me he'll be good to you Who wouldn't be? What else is new? And now all that I can do is wish you well It wouldn't have bothered me any If you left me when you wanted to But you just had to wait until you had some place better to go Leaving me was one thing Carla Why'd you have to leave so slow? I didn't mind you walking away What hurt was how you walked so slow
