Walk away leave with my blessing
Once in awhile, let me hear from you
If we never meet again, before my life is over
I'll leave this world loving you

You can take every thing but my memories
For they're good ones and they'll see me through
If we never meet again, I'll love you forever
I'll leave this world loving you

You were mine for a time, and I'm thankful
Oh but life would be lonesome without you
If we never meet again, this side of heaven
I'll leave this world loving you

If we never meet again, this side of heaven
I'll leave this world loving you
