Goodbye Cheyenne
©2013 Frank Gayer Martin

This didn’t work out well, I’ll admit
Fast money, cheap beer and such
There’s lot’s of churches in Cheyenne
But no preacher moved me much

My mother meant well, I recollect
With words and deeds and abiding love
But I found it suffocating
And gray day, I’d had enough

It’s time to leave
Goodbye again, goodbye again
Goodbye Cheyenne
Get your things
No time to spend, goodbye again
Goodbye Cheyenne

I got a summons, not some higher call
And the only thing I know about the law
It’s not about forgiveness, it’s about the cost
I see my chance, I’m gonna run

A misdemeanor is exactly that
You’re offending society
But cross the line, you’re not coming back
Leastwise, that ain’t me

Fifteen, nineteen and twenty-two
They got a record of what I’ve done
But it can’t tell you who I am
So it ain’t true

And who I am and what I’ve done
Sometimes don’t seem the same
I watch myself hurt somebody else
My heart pulls up lame
