the marcy brothers – by the dawn’s early light lyrics

Loading...

[verse 1]
well, i’m lying here thinking that i ought to be leaving
cos it’s more than halfway right
i’m wondering if i ought to wake you up and explain
or leave quietly in the night
well, the latter sounds better, so i pack up my feather
and i lean down and kiss you one time
i’m gonna miss you, but i’ll be in mississippi
by the dawn’s early light

[chorus]
hey, by the dawn’s early light i’ll be in mississippi
then you won’t have to worry about it
and i’ll be one more loner on the road of life
with his thumb out one more time
aw, i hate to be going but i gave you fair warning
that i wasn’t fit to be tied
i’m gonna miss you but i’ll be in mississippi
by the dawn’s early light
[instrumental break]

[verse 2]
well, you’re lying there sleeping like a soft warm baby
and i want to touch your skin
but i know darn well if i crawl back in bed
you’ll be changing my mind again
so while your eyes are all closed and your heart don’t know
i’ll be doing what i think is right
i’m gonna miss you but i’ll be in mississippi
by the dawn’s early light

[chorus twice]

[outro]
i’m gonna miss you but i’ll be in mississippi
by the dawn’s early light, yeah
