Read your note this mornin'
'Bye-bye girl', that's all it said
Glad I found it first
Before the kids got out of bed
Baked a tray of muffins
Hung some wet-wash out to dry
By the time the kids got up
I could look them in the eye
You've gone away, you've gone away
How will I get though the day?
This God-forsaken day
Drank some bitter coffee
Read your note ten times or more
When I'd washed the dishes twice
I got down and scrubbed the floor
Empty chair at supper
Everybody's actin' strange
Food just gettin' cold
Kids real quiet for a change
You've gone away, you've gone away
How will I get through the day?
This God-forsaken day
Rain was fallin' hard
As I walked slowly up the stairs
Pushed my tears back down
As I stood listenin'
To their prayers
There's your empty pillow
Your side's flat right to the wall
Now's the time for private cryin'
Now it hurts me
Most of all
You've gone away
I turn off the light
How will I get through the night?
This God-forsaken night
This long and lonesome, God-forsaken night
