She was a pretty girl with long brown hair
But I just didn't want to settle down
I was honest with her because I care
Went to meet her for the last time in town.
With teary eyes she said that she loved me
All she wanted was to be by my side
Told her gently I wanted to be free
She went home and committed suicide.
The gossip mill turned said I was to blame
Why couldn't it have been me that had died
They expected me to bow down in shame
And would ask why I hadn't even cried.
Then some lowlifes tried to burn my house down
That was enough; I packed up and left town.
