Lyrics

Goodbye

Written By: Zachary Stevenson

The old rusty slide
still stands in the yard
The three legged cat
made a home beneath the old dead car
The blackberry bush
now fills in the rows
The apples on the trees
is just dinner for crows
The bark's getting sore
the deer keep coming around
The paint peels on the barn
and flakes to the ground

Chorus:
Now we're grown and we've left town
And so few friends are still around
Mom and dad decided to split
They're selling our house
This is it,
Goodbye

The rooster that crowed
now sounds like a shriek
The tractor sits alone
and never speaks
The wild grass grows
so proud and so tall
And knows not to fear
the motor blades at all
Because this land
dad once tried to feed
Has been left to it's own
and has all gone to seed

Chorus

Goodbye to my room
that knows me best of all
Goodbye to the house
we'll no longer call
Goodbye to the yard
Were we used to play
Goodbye to my youth
that's slipping away
