Allman Brothers Band, The - Leavin' Lyrics




Mama stood cryin' at the back door
Papa's lacin' on his leavin' shoes
Little Joe's blowin' on the horn outdoors
I've seen enough, I can't take no more
And I'm leavin'

Might go to Philadelphia, PA
Might wind up in Boston, I just can't say
Got my axe in one hand
Got my Greyhound ticket in the other hand
And I'm leavin'

I tell you I'm leavin'
Gonna play my blues
Yes I'm leavin'
Got nothing to lose
Well, I'm dying to get the hell out of here
Right Away

Mama stood cryin' at the back door
Papa's lacin' on his leavin' shoes
Little Joe's blowin' on the horn outdoors
I've seen enough, I can't take no more
And I'm leavin'

I said I'm leavin'
Gonna play my guitar
I'm leavin'
Don't care if I'm a big star
I'm leavin' this old ghetto
Right away, right away

  1. MrHenry1876

  2. garybravo

    One of my top 10 walking around work singing songs.

  3. Mark Garno

    this song is awesome, should definetly be revised by SOMEBODY

  4. jaxflfreebird

    The bass guitar sells this song, that and of course Gregg's great vocal. This song might be a simple thing but that's no reason it should have been forgotten. It would be interesting to see what the modern band could do with this song. Oteil could be "the man" on this tune.

  5. Susan Ashton

    Loved it back then and loving it now! XXOO
