(Dolly Parton)

Some chewing gum and candy, some magazines and snacks, 
Some startin' over money that I've been holdin' back, 
A change of clothes and notepad to write a letter back to say so long 
A one-way ticket sayin' good-bye to everything 
Threw my weddin' band out the window of the train 
All I want's my freedom, reclaim my maiden name 
I'm movin' on 'cause I'm gone 

You can tell the truth or you can lie 
You can say I left you or I died 
Say I'm in the Himalayas on some spiritual quest 
And could spend years lookin' for the light 
Say I'm in the witness program with the F.B.I., 
Say a U.F.O. abducted me from home 
You can say what you chose, but I tell you the truth 
You can say for sure I'm gone, 'cause I'm gone 

You think that you're above me, like I'm not good enough 
You make me feel unwanted, unwelcome and unloved 
You're selfish, vain and greedy; you're hateful, rude and rough 
And you're so wrong 
But you'd rather live unhappy and tolerate the pain 
Than separate and have me takin' half of everything 
Well, I'm leavin' your possessions, left on the good-bye train, 
Left you alone 'cause I'm gone 

You can have the house, the car, the boat, 
My records, books and stereo, 
The dog and the cat, my ceramic shop out back, 
My doll collection and my clothes 
You can keep all our friends and all the pictures in the den, 
And the fluffy pillows you sleep on 
But when you lay your head on that big feather bed 
You can rest assured I'll be gone; I'll be gone 

You can tell the truth or you can lie 
You can say I left or I died 
Say I'm in the Himalayas on some spiritual quest 
And could spend years lookin' for the light 
Say I'm in the witness program with the F.B.I. 
Say a U.F.O. abducted me from home 
Well, you can say what you chose, but I tell you the truth 
You can say for sure I'm gone 
You can say what you like, but I'll tell you twice 
You can say for sure, say for sure I'm gone, gone 

Some chewing gum and candy, magazines and snacks, 
Startin' over money I've been holding back, 
Change of clothes and notepad to write a letter back to say so long 
I got a one-way ticket sayin' good-bye to everything 
I threw my weddin' band out of the window of the train 
All I want's my freedom, reclaim my maiden name 
I'm moving on 'cause I'm gone 
Oh, I'm gone, gone, gone; I'm gone 
I'm so gone, I'm gone; gone, I'm gone
