​It Just Don't Take Me Long To Say Goodbye

This song is by Bill Anderson and appears on the album Happy State Of Mind (1968) and on the album Just Plain Bill (1972).

I didn't see no sense in me just sittin' here and draggin' out the pain
There's nothin' you can say or do to ever make me want for you again
You say I've turned my back on you I'm runnin' out but baby that's a lie
It just don't take me long to say goodbye
I told you when I met you not to put your chain of love on me too tight
Or you'd look up and find me slipping out into the freedom of the night
I didn't mean to hurt you babe I think you know I ain't that kinda guy
But it just don't take me long to say goodbye
It just don't take me long to change my shirt and call a cab and catch a train
There ain't nothing we can talk about and baby I've got nothing to explain
All I'm taking is my body so don't ever say I left you high and dry
It just don't take me long to say goodbye it just don't take me long to say goodbye
