When I’m Gone


There’s no place in this world where I’ll belong when I’m gone And I won’t know the right from the wrong when I’m gone And you won’t find me singin’ on this song when I’m gone So I guess I’ll have to do it while I’m here

And I won’t feel the flowing of the time when I’m gone All the pleasures of love will not be mine when I’m gone My pen won’t pour a lyric line when I’m gone So I guess I’ll have to do it while I’m here

And I won’t breathe the bracing air when I’m gone And I can’t even worry ’bout my cares when I’m gone Won’t be asked to do my share when I’m gone So I guess I’ll have to do it while I’m here

And I won’t be running from the rain when I’m gone And I can’t even suffer from the pain when I’m gone Can’t say who’s to praise and who’s to blame when I’m gone So I guess I’ll have to do it while I’m here

Won’t see the golden of the sun when I’m gone And the evenings and the mornings will be one when I’m gone Can’t be singing louder than the guns when I’m gone So I guess I’ll have to do it while I’m here

All my days won’t be dances of delight when I’m gone And the sands will be shifting from my sight when I’m gone Can’t add my name into the fight while I’m gone So I guess I’ll have to do it while I’m here

And I won’t be laughing at the lies when I’m gone And I can’t question how or when or why when I’m gone Can’t live proud enough to die when I’m gone So I guess I’ll have to do it while I’m here

There’s no place in this world where I’ll belong when I’m gone And I won’t know the right from the wrong when I’m gone And you won’t find me singin’ on this song when I’m gone So I guess I’ll have to do it, I guess I’ll have to do it Guess I’ll have to do it while I’m here
