Dead N Gone

I heard a yesterday you was dead and gone

I heard a yesterday you was dead and gone

I should be happy cause you know you done me wrong

I haven’t seen you now for 29 years

I haven’t seen you now for 29 years

I heard you waited for me to come back

But I cried too many tears

They told us not to do it they told us not to wed

But we didn’t listen and we did it instead

I don’t blame you anymore you can’t blame me

I took nothing and I walked out the door

I had to be free

We were too young to marry we weren’t the marring kind

We were too young to marry we weren’t the marrying kind

I know I left in a hurry I had made up my mind

They told us not to do it they told us not to wed

But we didn’t listen and we did it instead

I don’t blame you anymore you can’t blame me

Cause happily ever after was just a fantasy

I heard a yesterday you was dead and gone

I heard a yesterday you was dead and gone

I should be happy cause you know you done me wrong

I should be happy cause you know you done me wrong
