Ain't it hard to say goodbye on separation day?
Ain't it hard to say goodbye on separation day?
That the last thing my baby say
Ooo-well, now when she walked away

I couldn't hardly take it
But I had the debt to pay
I couldn't hardly take it
But I had the debt to pay
Because my baby said good-bye
Hoo-hoo-well, on separation day

It was a hard pill to swallow
On that going that way
It is too late to holler
When your good girl is gone away
It's a hard pill to swallow, hoo-well-well
When you think about separation day

(piano)

Wait here one hour, while I go an pray
Wait here one hour, whiles I go an pray
I wanna tell the people, hoo-well-well
I ain't seein' my cell today.

When you get up in the mornin'
You don't have nothin' to say
When you get up in the mornin'
You don't have nothin' to say, mm
Because your mind is restin'
Hoo-hoo, well on sparation day.
