Somebody's waiting back home in Dallas With no idea where she has gone Got her suitcase all packed up In the back of the pickup Got her red knee-high luccheses on She's on any old two-lane West bound she knows 'Cause she was chasing her shadow When the sun finally rose Man, she's just running It don't matter where She figures she'll know where she is when she's there
But she didn't leave nothin' she can't do without That's enough reason for leavin' no doubt She rolls down the window, turns up a song Laughs at the weather and says, hello, I'm gone
She broke down in Lubbock Got it stuck in reverse So she hitched down the highway Her little gun in her purse Got to the station Stared at the phone Found herself thinkin' about calling for home
And she didn't leave nothin' she can't do without That's enough reason for leavin' no doubt She dropped in a quarter made herself strong All that she told him was, "Hello, I'm gone"
Then she called up a tow truck Said, "Fix up what's wrong I'm paying in cash boys Hello, I'm gone"
