I'm goin' away, honey, it's don't you want to go?

I ain't got no wife, and I ain't got no child at school.

If you've got a sweet woman, you better love her while you can,
If you've got a sweet woman, you better love her while you can,
For your heart'll strike sorrow when I come back to town again.

Fixin' to leave town and hang crepe on your door.
