So, it comes to the end of the day 
And I'm checking out of my hotel room today 
It's been two years since I've seen your face 
The girl beside me reminds me how you taste 
Since I've seen you, I've been beaten down and bruised 
And every day I'm feeling more and more misused 
I never thought that I would be without your love 
Years gone by, you're still the one I'm thinking of 

[Chorus]
Sweet Savannah, you shine so bright 
May the evening bring your favorite night 
Sweet Savannah, you been gone so long 
But I've got to move on 

It's getting cold, I put my jacket on your back 
And we smoke a cigarette, the last one in the pack 
I still remember exactly what you said 
That you had demons that you couldn't put to bed 
Now I'm leaving, yeah, I'm moing out west 
And it's time for us to lay our history to rest 
I still remember a tear drop in your eye 
But you know I couldn't stand to see you cry 

[Chorus]

So I close on this Hollywood night 
Where this counter-culture cultivates an emptiness inside 
Would it be different if you were still here in my life 
Would I be sober, and would you be my wife? 

Sweet Savannah, you shine so bright 
May the evening be your favorite night 
Sweet Savannah, you been gone so long 
But I've got to be movin' on
