You're Gonna Make Me Lonesome When You Go

I've seen love go by my door
It's never been so close before
Never been so easy or so slow
Been shooting in the dark too long
If somethin' isn't right it's wrong
You're gonna make me lonesome when you go

Dragon clouds high above
I've only known careless love
It always has hit me from below
But this time around it's more correct
Right on target, so direct
You're gonna make me lonesome when you go

Purple clover, Queen Anne lace
Crimson hair across your face
You can make me cry if you don't know
Can't remember what I was thinkin' of
You might be spoilin' me with too much love
You're gonna make me lonesome when you go

Flowers on the hillside, bloomin' crazy
Crickets talkin' back and forth in rhyme
Blue rivers runnin' slow and lazy
I could stay with you forever and never realize the time

Situations have ended sad
Relationships have all been bad
Mine have been like the lanes and rambles
But there's no way I can compare
All those scenes to that affair
You're gonna make me lonesome when you go

You're gonna make me wonder what I'm doin'
Stayin' far behind without you
You're gonna make me wonder what I'm sayin'
You're gonna make me give myself a good talkin' to

I'll look for you in old Honolulu, San Francisco, or Ashtabula
You're gonna have to leave me now, I know
But I'll see you in the sky above
In the tall grass, in the ones I love
You're gonna make me lonesome when you go
You're gonna make me lonesome when you go
You're gonna make me lonesome when you go
