Ernest Tubb

Ernest Dale Tubb (February 9, 1914 – September 6, 1984), nicknamed the Texas Troubadour, was an American singer and songwriter and one of the pioneers of country music.

All you want to do is sit around and pout and now I've got enough so I'm gettin' out
I'm leavin' now I'm leavin' now I'm a long gone daddy I don't need you anyhow
I've been in the doghouse for so doggone long
That when I get a kiss I think that somethin's wrong
I'm leavin' now I'm leavin' now I'm a long gone daddy I don't need you anyhow
[ guitar ]
I'll go find a gal that wants to treat me right
You go and get yourself a man that wants to fight
I'm leavin' now I'm leavin' now I'm a long gone daddy I don't need you anyhow
You start your jaws a waggin' and they never stop
You never shut your moth until I blow my top
I'm leavin' now I'm leavin' now I'm a long gone daddy I don't need you anyhow
[ steel ]
I remember back when you were nice and sweet
Things have changed you'd rather fight than eat
I'm leavin' now I'm leavin' now I'm a long gone daddy I don't need you anyhow
I'm gonna do some ridin' on the midnight train
I'm taking evrything except my balled chain
I'm leavin' now I'm leavin' now I'm a long gone daddy I don't need you anyhow
