Thinking About Leaving


words and music by Kent Newsome and Rick Paul

I stopped off for some cold beers
At the Why Not Bar today
Clete said, "Hey, man, I’m really sorry
I hear your woman’s movin’ away"

His wife is your best friend
So I guess it must be so
But it’s more than a little aggravating
To be the last damn one to know

So darlin’ if you’re thinking about leaving
Go ahead, leave me today
You’ve been staring at that door forever
And I won’t stand in your way

You’ve been clipping pictures
From the traveling magazines
Honey, are you planning our vacation
Or going somewhere without me

So darlin’ if you’re thinking about leaving
Go ahead, leave me today
You’ve been staring at that door forever
And I won’t stand in your way

I don’t know if it’s something I did
Or something you let me do
But what’s the difference anyway
If you and me are through

So darlin’ if you’re thinking about leaving
Go ahead, leave me today
You’ve been staring at that door forever
And I won’t stand in your way
Girl, I won’t stand in your way
