"Don't Say Goodbye"
written by Radney Foster
off the Del Rio, TX 1959 CD.


D
Well I heard it from confidential sources
             G
you've been thinking 'bout losing my name
                  G                    D
and you've been dialin' some unlisted number
         A
at some Memphis, TN exchange
           D
Well your plannin' on headin' down the highway
          G
and this time you're going for good
            G                           A
well honey don't think twice 'bout the pain you leave behind
      A                      D
just do me one favor if you would
G                                 D
Don't say goodbye, just slam the door
            A                             D
Don't apologize, that only makes it hurt more
               G                      D
all your sympathy, will only make me cry
        A                                    D
so get out, go on, get gone, and don't say goodbye
D (HOLD D)
Now you were hoping you could break it to me gently
          G
you were thinkin' we could part as friends
         G                  D
If I'd only try and remain civil
     A
I'd see it your way in the end
             D
Well pardon me if I beg to differ
                G
'cause I'm the one who's gotta live with the pain
                G                      D
and when you're out on the town, I'll still be broke down
            A                     D
don't you bother with tryin' to explain
[chorus]
BM
I don't need to have all the reasons numbered
A                                            G
You can save those condolences for some other guy
                 A
baby some other time
[chorus]
