lyrics

I nudged the needle off the phonograph record
I couldn't stand that lonesome song no more
The sound of sorrow used to make me feel better
But anymore, it just leaves me feeling worse

So I'm gonna leave that life behind
Dust off my seersucker suit, patch the holes with needle and twine
I ain't gonna sing another song about losing my mind
I'm gonna kiss them vagabond blues goodbye

I used to drink bourbon for breakfast
With the devil, like a dog, nipping at my heels
Life ain't worth nothing when you're young, wild, and reckless
Out breaking hearts like strings on an old guitar

So I'm gonna leave that life behind
Maybe shake some dust in a county that is dry
Quit drinking coffee and gas station wine
I'm gonna kiss them vagabond blues goodbye

Now I got a new song I been strumming
You can see right through it like the cracks in my floorboards
It's just some forgotten, borrowed tune that I been humming
It ain't like nothing I ever sung before

Cause I up and left that life behind
Found me a sweetheart to stand by my side
We went down to the courthouse and got a marriage license signed
I up and kissed them vagabond blues goodbye, my honeypie
I puckered up and kissed them vagabond blues goodbye
