Mike Mangione Lyrics - You Don't Wanna Leave

You Don't Wanna Leave

Tenebrae

Mike and the Band on Youtube:


I took five days in Memphis but Memphis was taking me
So I drove to Chicago to study the city streets
I saw my girl my lover she said she'd wear my ring
But as I kept on walking to my back I could hear her sing
She sings

Big wheels lay you down
In the chords of another town
And you'll sing yourself to sleep
And if that mockingbird don't care for a single word
You'll just change your melody
You don't wanna leave
You don't wanna leave

Little Robby was a lover
But his picture was his biggest muse
He had all the gifts of heaven but he traded for a pair of shoes
And his girl she loved him but he never wanna let her in
So when I heard that he left her
I said Robby did you hear her sing?
She sing

Big wheels lay you down
In the chords of another town
And you sing yourself to sleep
And if that mockingbird don't care for a single word
You just change your melody
Cause you don't wanna leave
You don't wanna leave
You don't wanna leave
All right no no no oh oh oh

Well the night's busted open
On these two lanes to anywhere
There's a kiss on my cheek and it burns so I leave it there
And I step on the gas and something begins to shake
It's my heart and it's singing, boy this is more than you can take

Yeah singing
