lyrics

Virginia, Virginia
I can't love you anymore
My head's like a diamond
Eyes burning red
If I wanna get to heaven
I gotta put you to bed
Goodbye, my friend goodbye

If I don't start living'
I'm not at my best
But the thought of not drinking'
Is like a knife in my chest
If I wanna get to heaven
I gotta put you to rest
Goodbye, my friend goodbye

There's nothing I hate more
Than tearful goodbyes
It's taken forever
There's so much on my mind
If I don't get it together
They'll lock me away
Goodbye, my friend goodbye

Daisy, Oh Daisy
Nothing better than us
Me in that phone booth
And you in that dress
I got the whole world ahead of me
Now that you're gone
Goodbye for now. Goodbye

Mama, Oh mama
Gonna make you so proud
My future is so bright
My past is so loud
My legs are so heavy
From always running with the crowd
Goodbye. For now goodbye.

Missouri. Missouri
I've known you for years
It hangs in my throat
And rings in my ears
I'm wanting' to cry now
But it's bringing' me down
Goodbye. My friend goodbye.
