Mickey Newbury - "She Even Woke Me Up To Say Goodbye" lyrics

She Even Woke Me Up To Say Goodbye

Well mornings come and Lord my mind is achin'
The sunshine standing quietly at my door
Just like the dawn my heart is silently breaking
And with my tears it goes tumbling to the floor

Once again the old town will be talking
Yes Lord I've seen the pity thats in their eyes
Cause they could never understand
Its her sorrow, its not a man
No matter what they say we know she tried

Babys packed her soft things
and shes left me
I just know she didn't mean to make me cry
Its not her heart, Lord its her mind
She didn't mean to be unkind
Why she even woke me up to say goodbye

Its not her heart, Lord its her mind
She just didn't mean to be unkind
Why she even woke me up to say goodbye
