(Dolly Parton)

If you need me, I'll be gone

The bed's still warm where you just left
But it'll be colder where I've slept
I've always been where you needed me
But I ain't the fool I used to be

You come home all hours of the night
The fragrance on you ain't old spice
Tonight when you come draggin' home
And find you need me, I'll be gone

I'll be gone like the moon when the sun comes up
Gone like the dew from the buttercup
Gone like a woman treated wrong
If you need me, I'll be gone

So, what am I still doing here?
You've been doin' me wrong for years
Tired of pickin' up and puttin' out
I'm leaving you lock, stock, and house

So, bye, bye, baby
That's it, I'm packed
I'm a'leavin' now, but I'll call back
And leave this message on the code-a-phone
Sayin', if you need me, well, I'll be gone

I'll be gone like the moon when the sun comes up
Gone like the dew from the buttercup
Gone like a woman leavin' home
If you need me, I'll be gone

I'll be gone like the moon when the sun comes up
Gone like the dew from the buttercup
Gone like a woman leavin' home
If you need me, I'll be gone

I said, if you need me, I'll be gone

If you need me, I'll be gone
I said, if you need me, I'll be gone
