For the Last Time: Community Radio’s Last Love Letter (Again)

I keep intending to tell you
I been lonely much too long
And some morning you will wake up
And find the note that says I’m gone.

I’ve tried so long to say
I’m moving to greener pastures down the line
I keep intending to tell you
But it keeps slipping my mind.

I’ve got it on my lips to warn you
I’ve been lonely my last time
And when you wake up in the morning
You’ll find me gone and lose your mind.

I’d like to say that I’ll be moving
To greener pastures down the line
I keep intending to tell you
But it keeps slipping my mind.

I would have —
Thinking of the words I’ll say
If I could keep old memories
From always headin’ in my way.

I’ve come so very close to saying
My lovin’ is a waste of time
I keep intending to tell you
But it keeps slipping my mind…

Your Friend,

Hank Mills (as told by Tammy Wynette)
