Going, Going, Gone

I've just reached a place

Where the willow don't bend.

There's not much more to be said

It's the top of the end.

I'm going,

I'm going,

I'm gone.

.

I'm closin' the book

On the pages and the text

And I don't really care

What happens next.

I'm just going,

I'm going,

I'm gone.

.

I been hangin' on threads,

I been playin' it straight,

Now, I've just got to cut loose

Before it gets late.

So I'm going,

I'm going,

I'm gone.

.

Grandma said, "Boy, go and follow your heart

And you'll be fine at the end of the line.

All that's gold isn't meant to shine.

Don't you and your one true love ever part."

.

I been walkin' the road,

I been livin' on the edge,

Now, I've just got to go

Before I get to the ledge.

So I'm going,

I'm just going,

I'm gone.
