Gone, Gone, Gone    (1965)

Well, she said if I ever deceived her
She'd be gone before I could count ten.
I guess that I didn't believe her,
Cause just look at the trouble I'm in.

And she's gone, gone, gone...
Gone, gone, gone.
Crying won't bring her back.
The more that I cry, the faster the train flies
Farther on down the track.

I lost every right to be happy
When I lost the heaven I'd found.
She warned me she'd leave, and she left me
Before my first tear hit the ground.

And she's gone, gone, gone...
Gone, gone, gone.
Crying won't bring her back.
The more that I cry, the faster the train flies
Farther on down the track.

If I only knew where to find her,
I'd crawl down on my hands and knees.
And each tick of the clock's a reminder
That she's one second farther from me.

And she's gone, gone, gone...
Gone, gone, gone.
Crying won't bring her back.
The more that I cry, the faster the train flies
Farther on down the track.
