Don't Say Goodbye If You Love Me
Written by Jimmie Davis & Bonnie Dodd




They tell me today you are going,
Far away just to make you a name,
They tell me that you're discontented,
And that you are search-ing for fame.


Don't say goodbye if you love me,
It would make my heart overflow,
Kiss my lips once ere you leave me,
Just don't say goodbye when you go.


Somehow I can't realize we're parting,
I have grown used to having you near,
The strings in my heart love are breakin',
I just can't say good-bye to you dear.


Each night as I kneel by my bedside,
I will pray one sweet prayer for just for you,
I will ask of the kind one in heaven,
Just to make all your dreams dear come true.
