You're Gonna Make Me Lonesome When You Go I've seen love go by my door It's never been close this before Never been so easy or so slow I been shooting in the dark too long When something's not right, it's wrong You gonna make me lonesome when you go Dragon clouds so high above I've only known careless love It always has hit me from below But this time around it's more correct Right on target, so direct You gonna make me lonesome when you go Purple clover, Queen Anne Lace Crimson hair across your face You could make me cry if you don't know Can't remember what I was thinking of You might be spoiling me too much, love You gonna make me lonsome when you go Flowers on the hillside blooming crazy Crickets talking back and forth in rhyme Blue river running slow and lazy I could stay with you forever and never realize the time Situations have ended sad Relationships have all been bad Mine've been like Verlaine's and Rimbaud But there's no way I can compare All those scenes to this affair You gonna make me lonesome when you go You gonna make me wonder what I'm doing Staying far behind without you You gonna make me wonder what I'm saying You gonna make me give myself a good talking to I'll look for you in ol'Honolulu San Francisco, Ashtabula You gonna have to leave me now, I know But I'll see you in the sky above And in the tall grass, in the ones I love You gonna make me lonesome when you go
