Lyrics
I got the bad news this morning
I think I'm gonna have to leave right away
Oh Lord, I think I'm gonna have to leave right away

You know I hope and I pray
I'll see my love one another day, yeah

The sad thing in my life
Lord, I got to leave now
Oh, the sad thing in my life
Lord, I got to leave right now

Oh, there's a strain in my heart
Just to know that my woman
Is gonna be goin' out, yes, she is

Please
Yeah

Lord, hold me, hold me over
Hold me over, hold me over
Honey, I'm gonna miss my baby

I don't wanna go
But the bad news is coming
Lord, please don't let me go, no
The news is comin' [?]
Yeah, yeah

Listen

I gotta say, I gotta leave you
Baby
