I filled my ol' car up with gas north to chicago i was goin'
just drove ten miles and turned around i couldn't leave without you knowin'
i had to see you one last time and be with you once before i'll go
to talk with you just one more time and then i'm bound north to chicago
still i wish there's something you would say to make me change my mind and stay
but i guess it's gotta be this way then i guess i'm bound north to chicago
please don't be angry that i've come i know you didn't want to see me
i know i said i wouldn't call and i tried my best love please believe me
well everything i own is in my car you can see i'm leavin' so you must know
i only come to say goodbye and now i'm bound north to chicago
still i wish there's something...
(ah lord that woman done me a fool of little ol' hank
and i'm just gonna be movin' on north to chicago yeah)
