Lyrics  I ain't never been with a woman long enough
 For my boots to get old
 But we been together so long now
 They both need resoled.
 If I ever settled down, you'd be my kind,
 So it's a good time for me to head on down the line.

 Heard it in a love song,
 Heard it in a love song,
 Heard it in a love song …
 Can't be wrong.

 I'm the kind of man who likes to get away,
 Likes to start dreamin' about tomorrow, today.
 Never said that I loved you, even though it's so,
 I'll grab this duffel bag of mine, it's time to go.

 (chorus and instrumental verse)

 I'm gonna be leavin' at the break of dawn,
 Wish you could come, but I don't need no woman taggin' along.
 Gon' sneak out that door, couldn't stand to see you cry.
 I'd stay another year if I saw a teardrop in your eye.


 I never had a damn thing, but what I had, I had to leave it behind,
 You're the hardest thing I ever tried gettin' off my mind.
 Always somethin' greener on the other side of that hill,
 I was born a wrangler and a rambler and I guess I always will.
