So Long - Freddie

So Long

Freddie 'fingers' Lee

(Freddie 'Fingers' Lee, ROCKHOUSE LP 7912, 1979)

She worked in a honky tonk, selling cherry wine
And I was drinking whiskey, three fingers at a time
But after fifteen shots, I was seeing things
That I should never see
My baby with another man, walking out on me

So long, so long
She walked out and left the door swinging in the wind
So long, so long
Goodbye babe, I never thought I could ever win

[Instrumental break]

So long, so long
She walked out and left the door swinging in the wind
So long, so long
Goodbye babe, I never thought I could ever win

I spent all my younger days in a northern steelwork town
I spent my time fighting for dimes and knocking people down
So I packed my bags to change my life and live another style
But for a country boy who's lived like me
You're not the faithful kind

So long, so long
She walked out and left the door swinging in the wind
So long, so long
Goodbye babe, I never thought I could ever win
