Well I just got into town today To find my girl has gone away She took the Greyhound at the General Store I searched myself I searched the town When I finally did sit down I find myself no wiser than before
She said we couldn't do no wrong No other love could be so strong She locked up my heart in her bottom drawer Now she took my heart she took my keys From in my old blue dungarees And I'll never go to Texas anymore
* Chorus: Now my baby's gone I don't know what to do She took my love and walked right out the door And if I ever find that girl I know one thing for sure I'm gonna give her something like she never had before
I took her love at seventeen A little late these days it seems But they said heaven is well worth waiting for I took her word I took it all Beneath the sign that said "U-haul" She left angels hangin round for more
I thought I had it all sewn up Our love, a plot, a pick-up truck But folks said she was after something more I never did quite understand All that talk about rockin' bands But they just rolled my doll right out the door Oh yeah, they just rolled my doll right out the door!
