Dolly Parton I'm Gone Lyrics

Last updated:

Writer Dolly Parton

Some chewing gum and candy, some magazines and snacks,
Some startin' over money that I've been holdin' back,
A change of clothes and notepad to write a letter back to say so long
A one-way ticket sayin' good-bye to everything
Threw my weddin' band out the window of the train
All I want's my freedom, reclaim my maiden name
I'm movin' on 'cause I'm gone
You can tell the truth or you can lie
You can say I left you or I died
Say I'm in the Himalayas on some spiritual quest
And could spend years lookin' for the light
Say I'm in the witness program with the F.B.I.,
Say a U.F.O. abducted me from home
You can say what you chose, but I tell you the truth
You can say for sure I'm gone, 'cause I'm gone
You think that you're above me, like I'm not good enough
You make me feel unwanted, unwelcome and unloved
You're selfish, vain and greedy; you're hateful, rude and rough
And you're so wrong
But you'd rather live unhappy and tolerate the pain
Than separate and have me takin' half of everything
Well, I'm leavin' your possessions, left on the good-bye train,
Left you alone 'cause I'm gone
You can have the house, the car, the boat,
My records, books and stereo,
The dog and the cat, my ceramic shop out back,
My doll collection and my clothes
You can keep all our friends and all the pictures in the den,
And the fluffy pillows you sleep on
But when you lay your head on that big feather bed
You can rest assured I'll be gone; I'll be gone
You can tell the truth or you can lie
You can say I left or I died
Say I'm in the Himalayas on some spiritual quest
And could spend years lookin' for the light
Say I'm in the witness program with the F.B.I.
Say a U.F.O. abducted me from home
Well, you can say what you chose, but I tell you the truth
You can say for sure I'm gone
You can say what you like, but I'll tell you twice
You can say for sure, say for sure I'm gone, gone
Some chewing gum and candy, magazines and snacks,
Startin' over money I've been holding back,
Change of clothes and notepad to write a letter back to say so long
I got a one-way ticket sayin' good-bye to everything
I threw my weddin' band out of the window of the train
All I want's my freedom, reclaim my maiden name
I'm moving on 'cause I'm gone
Oh, I'm gone, gone, gone; I'm gone
I'm so gone, I'm gone; gone, I'm gone
