Long Gone Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
Oh well it's long gone long gone you got my baby and you're long gone
But I'll be hangin' around cause I know you're gonna put her down
Well she'll need someone that's true when she wakes up one day
And find you're long gone long gone
Verse 2
You just wandered into town
You took her and you started messin' around with my baby
You stole her heart cause she ain't used to your kind
With your fancy clothes and uptown style
Verse 3
It didn't take but a little while to get your way
'Cause your pretty little lies she couldn't see behind
And so it's long gone...
Verse 4
The man in me would like to fight to take you down by the river tonight
And change your way but that would make her hate the side of me
So there's nothing left for me to do a standin' watch by the likes of you
Hurt the girl I love while she's too much in love to even see
Verse 5
Oh yes it's long gone...
Long gone long gone long gone
