So Long Baby, Goodbye

SO LONG BABY, GOODBYE - Written by Carroll Bryant 


It's been nice knowing you, girl
You've been a special part of my world 
But you have to realize that people change 
And I must be on my way 

Time has a way of turning around 
And you know that I don't want to be tied down 
I know you still care, and I do too
But listen to what I'm telling you

So long baby, goodbye
It's time for this bird to fly
I got two wings and I'm gonna use them 
And living with you I know I'm gonna lose them 
I don't mean to make you cry
But so long baby, goodbye

It's been just like a holiday 
And your love could be enough to convince me to stay
But I shouldn't fall victim to your desire 
It's time for me to put out the fire 

I have a spirit that was born to be free
And there are so many places that I still want to see 
So many things still left to do
So listen girl to what I'm telling you 

So long baby, goodbye
It's time for this bird to fly
I got two wings and I'm gonna use them 
And living with you I know I'm gonna lose them 
I don't mean to make you cry
But so long baby, goodbye

I can't be happy with my feet stuck in the mud 
The same old thing everyday isn't fun 
I have to keep going to get to where I want to be 
I have to break these chains
I need to exercise this pain away 
I have to break these chains to be free

It's been nice knowing you, girl
You've been a special part of my world
I know you still care, and I do too
But listen to what I'm telling you

So long baby, goodbye
It's time for this bird to fly
I got two wings and I'm gonna use them 
And living with you I know I'm gonna lose them 
I don't mean to make you cry
But so long baby, goodbye
