Walkin' Away

(Jackie Morris)

I heard you talkin’

Heard what you said

I saw you laughing

When I turned my head

So I’ll keep walkin’

I’ll just keep walkin’, walkin’ away.

 

I won’t be waitin’

For you to call

I won’t be waiting

For you at all. 

I’ll just keep walkin’

‘Cause there’s nothing left to say.

 

CHORUS:

Don’t bury me ‘neath an old willow tree

He wouldn’t care anyway                 

I’ve got love to give

And I want to live

As soon as these tears go away....

(spoken) and they will....

 

Now listen sister

Hear what I say

If he don’t love you

Just call it a day

And start walking

That’s right, keep walkin’....walkin’ away.

CHORUS:

You hear song after song

How he done her wrong

And she cried, she cried every night

Well I lived those lines

Too many times

This time, I’m getting it right.  (spoken) Oh yeah...

                 

I won’t be waitin’

For you to call....anymore

I won’t be waiting

For you at all.  What for?

I’ll just keep walkin’

Keep walkin’...walkin’ away.

 

Tag:

I’ll just keep walkin’

Keep walkin’...towards a brighter day.
