This is a very slowly plaid 3/4 folk song that I sometimes do with finger picking. The lyrics are a bit short I know. I hope you like them.


To A Girl From The East


It's time that I go, my things are packed
I'm sorry to say, I won't be back
But you don't really mind that anyway
We've both said all that we can say
There ain't no sense in lyin' to ourselves

Yes, it's time that I leave, you know it's true
You won't miss me, I won't miss you
It's for the best we both know
So I'll just take my leave of you an go
Down the long lonesome road and end up somewhere else

You once loved me, yes I know that
But that was then and we can't go back
There ain't no use in thinkin'
About those you have forsaken
Just go on into tomorrow all by yourself

I won't wake you a 'fore I go
I'll just set out on down the road
Don't expect me to see me again
At least not for a year or ten
So for the time being I bid you farewell

"Sorry to say" wasn't great, but "I won't be back" was pretty good, if somewhat cliche.
But you don't really mind that anyway
We've both said all that we can say
Forced rhyme, in my opinion.
There ain't no sense in lyin' to ourselves

Yes, it's time that I leave, you know it's true
You won't miss me, I won't miss you
What? They won't miss each other? That feels like a direct contradiction to the first stanza!
It's for the best we both know
...and this line.
So I'll just take my leave of you an go
Down the long lonesome road and end up somewhere else

You once loved me, yes I know that
But that was then and we can't go back
There ain't no use in thinkin'
About those you have forsaken
Just go on into tomorrow all by yourself
Thinkin'/Forsaken was decent.

I won't wake you a 'fore I go
Good line.
I'll just set out on down the road
Don't expect me to see me again
At least not for a year or ten
Felt awkward to me.
So for the time being I bid you farewell

Nice work. Good outro.
Crit mine in my sig?
