Where I've been, you don't know.
And what I've got, baby, it don't show.
Now, I won't try to teach you how, don't talk now.
Don't talk roads, don't talk sand.
Don't talk dust, don't talk no man.
Don't talk rules, don't talk vows, don't talk now.

I don't want to hear the same old song,
And too many rights still make her wrong, baby.
I know she can't hurt me less by talking more,
She can't make good what was bad before.

No, It's too late now for me to lie
And I can't make a second try.
I just came on back, baby
Got to say good bye, good bye.
Don't talk now, don't talk now.
Don't talk now, don't talk now.
