The Last Goodbye Song

I guess I ain't the man I wanted to be
Or even the one I thought I was
You saw me about to drown
And you held me down
I don't know if it was just for fun
Or just because

Or just because

But something funny happened
When I was laying there in the gutter all alone
I found out I've been living without
You since you've been gone

And though I know
There is nothing left that I owe
I thought I would write you one last goodbye song

One last goodbye song
Long overdue as long as you've been gone
Get drunk and crack a smile
It's been a long long while
But raise your glass and sing this last
Goodbye song

Baby when you found me
I was already low, thought I was low as I could be
Ain't it funny passing time
How love and a rhyme 
Put a hold on and made a fool of me

Yesterday I shed one last tear
And lost the last thing I had to lose
I replayed the last few years and thought if I had a choice just what I would choose
I wouldn't change a thing as the truth that rings moaning these hillbilly blues

You left me for a cowboy
And you left me for your friends
You left to live the same old life
You were always living in

One last time 
I'll let you cross my mind
But the illusion is gone
You never wore my ring
So we don't owe each other a goddamn thing
But still, I'll give you one last goodbye song

One last goodbye song
Long overdue as long as you've been gone
Get drunk and crack a smile
It's been a long long while
But raise your glass and sing this last
Goodbye song
