​The Difference Between Going And Really Gone

This song is by Stonewall Jackson and appears on the album The Lonesome in Me (1970).

By our house runs the highway only forty feet away
In the driveway sits the car that I could used to get away
Up the sidewalk comes the reason I'm still hangin' on
The little boy that makes the difference between goin' and really gone

You tell me it's all over there's no reason I should stay
You've already found another and I'm only in your way
But past the mailbox walks the reason I'm still hangin' on
The little boy that makes the difference between goin' and really gone

Here comes six years of difference between goin' and really gone
Sixty pounds of reasons just walked across the lawn
Into the arms of his daddy no I can't do him wrong
For I help create the difference between goin' and really gone
Yes, I help create the difference between goin' and really gone
