Joe Purdy - Ah-La Song lyrics

Sitting in a Dixon garden, wishing that you and I weren't parting
For the last time, the last time
And I said, "Why you want to get married anyway? That man's got a family"
And then you say, "Couldn't wait on you forever, or could I?"
"Guess not"

There's an awkward silence for the first time, so many years
And as I recall you used to be mine, not some property of his
And I sing "Ah la don't go, ah la stay
Ah la don't go, don't go away."

"Maybe I should apologize, for I treated you so
And I'm so sorry that I left you here, I just wish I could have known"
You say, "You never can tell, and it's not your fault
See these things just happen when you're dealing with the hands on a clock of a woman"

"And he treats me fine, and anyways I'm getting older"
She said, "Oh but I still miss you sometimes, when the weather's getting colder"
And she sang "Ah la don't go, ah la stay
Ah la don't go, don't go away."

"Do we say goodbye, or just see you later?"
She said "Don't make me cry,
'Cause it's enough just to know
That I won't ever hold you close
And I won't ever smell your skin,
And I know how I'm supposed to feel,
Here we go again singing, 'Ah la don't go, ah la stay
Ah la don't go, don't go away.'"
