Bye and bye
I’m breathin’ a lover’s sigh
Well, I’m sittin’ on my watch so I can be on time
I’m singin’ love’s praises with sugar-coated rhyme
Bye and bye
On you I’m casting my eye

I’m paintin’ the town
Swinging my partner around
Well, I know who I can depend on
I know who to trust
I’m watchin’ the roads, I’m studying the dust
I’m paintin’ the town
Making my last go-round

Well, I’m scufflin’ and I’m shufflin’
And I’m walkin’ on briars
I’m not even acquainted with my
Own desires

I’m rollin’ slow
I’m doing all I know
I’m tellin’ myself
I found true happiness
That I’ve still got a dream that hasn’t been repossessed
I’m rollin’ slow, goin’ where the wild roses grow

Well the future
For me is already a thing of the past
You were my first love
And you will be my last

Papa gone mad, mamma, she’s feeling sad
Mamma, she’s feeling sad
Well, I’m gonna baptize you in fire so you can sin no more
I’m gonna establish my rule through civil war
Gonna make you see just how loyal and true a man can be
