Swear and Shake – Good As Gone Lyrics

I left New York City and its winter sting
I woke up hours later to a Carolina spring
The snow on the streets had turned to blue-green grass
It had been a little while since I’d seen anything like that
Soon enough you realize all the things you’ve lost
A dream for a dream and that’s exactly what it costs
The hearth of a home you trade it for the road
The light of a lover it all goes to the show

Don’t go, I can’t stay little darlin’
When I make a plan
I take it to the bottom
Don’t go, I can’t stay little missy
When I made a plan to cross the Mississippi
Don’t go, can’t you see I’m good as gone?

It stays on my conscience with each new passing town
The death in my family that I won’t see to the ground
The memory of a man and all for which he stood
There’s many things I left that no one ever should.

Don’t go, I can’t stay don’t you get it?
When I make a plan it’s hard to forget it
Don’t go, I an’t stay that’s for certain
You don’t need to hurt me, I’m already hurtin’
Don’t go, can’t you see I’m good as gone?

You can leave but don’t come back
You can leave but don’t come back
You can leave but don’t come back
Don’t let the Verrazano slam you on the way out, boy
You’re gonna be the death of me
It’s better than being half alive in New York City.

Don’t go, I can’t stay little vixen
When I made a plan to cross the Mason-Dixon
Don’t go , I can’t stay don’t you get it
When I make a plan it’s hard to forget it.
Don’t go, can’t you see I’m good as gone?
