Bobby Bare The Old Gang's Gone Lyrics

The old gang's gone
I'm the only one that's left
And I guess that it's about time
I move on out myself.

'Cause there ain't no use in hangin' round
A town that's grown so cold
With its used-to-be's and memories
It makes a man feel old.

My friends have wed and some are dead
And some are far away
From the part of town we ran around
And the fun of yesterday.

The old gang's gone
I'm the only one that's left
And I guess that it's about time
I move on out myself.

Johnny Green's in Jacksonville
He's a doctor now you know
And Shaky Sam's in Vietnam
He volunteered to go.

Cindy lives in Tennessee
And Mary moved to Maine
Oh, I don't guess I'll ever see
The likes of them again.

The old gang's gone
I'm the only one that's left
And I guess that it's about time
I move on out myself.

The old gang's gone
I'm the only one that's left
And I guess that it's about time
I move on out myself...

[Narrative by Bobby spoken after song:]
(He's down at the old swimmin' hole)
Well I live in the city too now but I'm still a country boy at heart
I keep saying someday I'll go back but I know I never will
It wouldn't be the same anyway
