SHE'S LEAVIN' (BONNIE PLEASE DON'T GO) (Kevin Johnson) Jim Ed Brown - 1971 (Should old acquaintance be forgot) (And never brought to mind) (Should old acquaintance be forgot) (For the sake of Auld Lang Syne) She's leavin', she's leavin', she's on the ship now and leavin' Standing by the gangway, tossin' streamers over my way I find it kinda hard believin' Deceivin', deceivin', my subtle game of deceivin' Standing here and wavin', blowin' kisses and behavin' Like it doesn't matter much to see her leavin' I don't know what, I don't know who, I don't know where she's goin' to I only know she's goin' out of my life Across the sea and wavin' hands and Colonel Billy's farewell band I watch the disappearin' face of my wife And I'm doin' all I can to hide the sad confusion in my mind And brace myself with every trick I know And though my lips are beating time to the words of Auld Lang Syne My voice keeps on defyin', cryin' Bonnie please don't go Oh, that fool in me, persuadin' me To hide the broken pieces of my dignity When a simple reassuring word just to reach out and comfort her Was all I had to say to keep her here with me And I don't know what, I don't know who, I don't know where she's goin' to I only know she's goin' out of my life Across the sea a wavin' hands and Colonel Billy's farewell band I watch the disappearin' face of my wife And I'm doin' all I can to hide the sad confusion in my mind And brace myself with every trick I know And though my lips are beating time to the words of Auld Lang Syne My voice keeps on defyin', cryin' Bonnie please don't go Oh, she's leavin', she's leavin', she's on the ship now and leavin' Standing by the gangway, tossin' streamers over my way I find it kinda hard believin' Deceivin', deceivin', my subtle game of deceivin' Standing here and wavin', blowin' kisses and behavin' Like it doesn't matter much to see her leavin' I said she's leavin', she's leavin', she's on the ship now and leavin' Standing by the gangway, tossin' streamers over my way I find it kinda hard believin' (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - October 2011)
