Kevin Welch – Hello I’m Gone Lyrics


THERE’S SOMEBODY WAITING
BACK HOME IN DALLAS
NO IDEA WHERE SHE HAS GONE
SHE’S GOT HER SUITCASE ALL PACKED UP
IN THE BACK OF THE PICK-UP
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
WHE SHE’S THERE
SHE DIDN’T LEAVE NOTHIN’ SHE CAN’T DO WITHOUT
THAT’S ENOUGH REASON FOR LEAVING NO DOUBT
SO 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
SHE GOT TO THE STATION
SHE STARED AT THE PHONE
SHE FOUND HERSELF THINKIN’ ABOUT CALLING FOR HOME
BUT SHE DIDN’T LEAVE NOTHIN’ SHE CAN’T DO WITHOUT
THAT’S ENOUGH REASON FOR LEAVIN’ NO DOUBT
SO SHE DROPPED IN A QUARTER, SHE MADE HERSELF STRONG
AND 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 PAYIN’ IN CASH, BOYS
HELLO, I’M GONE
