Bye and Bye

Bye and bye, I'm breathin' a lover's sigh

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

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

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

.
