If you see him, say hello, he might be in TangierHe left here last early spring, is livin' there, I hearSay for me that I'm all right thoughthings get kind of slowHe might think that I've forgotten him,Don't tell him it isn't so.
We had a falling-out, like lovers often willAnd to think of how he left that night,it still brings me a chillAnd though our separation,it pierced me to the heartHe still lives inside of me, we've never been apart
If you get close to him, kiss him once for meI always have respected himfor doing what he did and gettin' free
Oh, whatever makes him happy,I won't stand in the wayThough the bitter taste still lingers onfrom the night I tried to make him stay
I see a lot of people as I make the roundsAnd I hear his name here and thereas I go from town to town
And I've never gotten used to it,I've just learned to turn it offEither I'm too sensitive or else I'm gettin' soft.
Sundown, yellow moon, I replay the pastI know every scene by heart,they all went by so fastIf he's passin' back this way,I'm not that hard to findTell him he can look me up if he's got the time.
