When You Leave That Way You Can Never Go Back

In the style of

Confederate Railroad

Lyrics

i remember
wakin' in the mornin'
to the sound of
a rooster's crow

mama cookin'
in the kitchen
arthur godfrey
on the radio

me and dad were
just like strangers
we never did see
eye to eye
it came to blows
one sunday mornin'
so i packed my bags
and i said goodbye

and when you
leave that way
you can never go back
a train won't run
on a torn-up track

sometimes i wish i'd
never roamed oh no
'cause when you
leave that way
you can never go home

then i met a girl
in knoxville
oh we set our
wedding day
i left her standing
at the altar
with a baby on the way

and when you
leave that way
you can never go back
a train won't run
on a torn-up track

sometimes i wish i'd
never roamed oh no
'cause when you
leave that way
you can never go home

lord i'd love to see
my mom and daddy
and what i'd give
to hold that
boy of mine

i'd get down
on my knees
and say i'm sorry
if i could only go back
one more time

but i killed a man
in houston
when he caught me
with his wife

and i told
the preacher man
to leave me alone
when he came
to read my rights

and he said son
when you
leave this way
you can never
come back
a soul won't roll
on a torn-up track

all through eternity
you'll roam alone
'cause when you
leave this way
you can never
come home

all through eternity
you'll roam alone
'cause when you
leave this way
you can never
come home
