Eddie Rabbitt - She's Comin' Back To Say Goodbye Lyrics

There's a plane
Comin' in at night
I'm gonna leave a little early
Wanna be there on time
'cause my baby's
Flyin' in tonight
And i really can't believe
I'm gonna look in her eyes

And my heart
Is racin' down the loop
But there is something
That my heart don't know

She ain't comin' back
To stay the night
She's just comin' back
To make things right
To tell me face to face the truth
She's found somebody new
In her life

No, she's ain't comin' back
To stay this time
She's just comin' back
To ease her mind

No, she ain't comin' back to stay
She's comin' back
To say goodbye
She ain't comin' back to stay
She's comin' back
To say goodbye

She sees the lights
Of the city below
In just a couple of minutes
We'll be kissin' hello

And she acts like
She's readin' a book
But she's thinkin'
How happy i'm gonna look

And already
There's a lump in her throat
I wish she'd tell me
What i don't wanna know

She ain't comin' back
To stay the night
She's just comin' back
To make things right
To tell me face to face the truth
She's found somebody new
In her life (in her life)

No, she's ain't comin' back
To stay this time
She's just comin' back
To ease her mind

No, she ain't comin' back to stay
She's comin' back
To say goodbye
She ain't comin' back to stay
Log on to top40db.
She's comin' back
To say goodbye

She ain't comin' back to stay
She's comin' back
To say goodbye

She ain't comin' back to stay
She's comin' back
To say goodbye

She ain't comin' back to stay
She's comin' back
To say goodbye

    Eddie is the most underrated singer in history. He had 20 #1 hits and when Bob Kingsely from American Country Countdown did a special year end Milliuem at the end of 1999 December31 a count down of all country music artist of all time, Eddie Rabbit came in at #5 of all time and there where huge names he came in ahead of. i think the only 4 that were ahead of him, #1 Eddie Arnold #2 Johnny Cash, #3 Conway Twitty #4 George Jones and Eddie Rabbit at #5 of all time. So ya Eddie was sold short because he spoke the truth and big corporations didn't want him talking, so they quit playing his music, Eddie will always be a huge part of country music, hell he is the only artists in history who has had over 10 songs hit the 100 million played each, next closet was 3 at the time. what a voice!

    Mark Wood

    Was so fortunate to see Eddie Rabbit perform a show in the 80’s in Michigan. He put on an amazing performance and I will always remember it.

  45. Amber Girl 78

    good song!!

  46. George Foryan

    No one ever sings any songs of his in clubs, bars or lounges as of this day. For a guy who had many popular songs during his lifetime, is seems all his music died with him. And this is sad!

    edward martinez

    +Profitable Traveling that is so true man that aint cool he had so many great hits but so underplayed

    Mary Micglire


    Steven A

    @Mary Micglire Hi Mary. Are you from New Jersey also? Is that how you know Eddie? I'm from Jersey also and started listening to him in 1975 when his first album came out. I did get to see him one time in concert as well. He was an amazing singer and songwriter. He is greatly missed.

  47. S Sanchez

    gosh I miss Eddie's music. just takes me back to the good old days when country was country.

    Amber Girl 78


    Karen 1963

    yes!!! I agree...today's country is not country.

    Adrian Tomlin

    I listen oh Eddie every damn chance I get!! His music lives on as long as his fans keep listening them!!

    maverick freeman

    I worked in country music in my hometown of NASHVILLE first as a roadie and then own the booking end for 35 years.I did one show with this great singer and writer MR.EDDIE RABBITT and what a very special guy EDDIE was very nice very friendly and treated his fans with respect and always took the time to talk to them.You meet so many of the greats in country music some good some bad but EDDIE always showed his good side to everyone I don't believe the man had a bad side to him.He is missed by everyone who new him and country music lost a great singer and writer and of-course his family.WE LOVE YOU EDDIE REST IN PEACE MY FRIEND.

    Karen 1963

    +jimmyjacktx dallas I got to meet him in ft worth tx. and I got a kiss on the lips too. very sweet n classy guy.
    god I miss him!

  51. Jorge Callico

    MRcraig,  Thank you for the good muvee.

    Little Richard said of Country Music "This is the White man's Blues". And perhaps only he could say that without risking criticism of inappropriate or even (god forbid!) "racist" remarks.  Little Richard loves Country music too I might add. 

    Anyway, Eddie Rabbitt perfectly personified the modern Country singer. Someone who helps you get to the root of your feelings. Hardly a day goes by when I don't listen to at least two or three songs which tear my heart out. I find it cleansing.

  52. Robert Martin

    what a wonderful song and such a beautiful man.so heartfelt

  53. cornshucker77

    This reminds me of an old girlfriend. I know how he feels.

  54. Vivian Grinstead

    Saw him in concert at the Roxy, in L.A.

  55. Mary Knight

    This is for you Barry..miss you and hope your life is good now.

  56. Jeffery Willoughby

    I think it's only a matter of time before he's in the Country Music Hall of Fame...as good as he was singing a song, especially one like "She's Coming Back To Say Goodbye," he was an even more talented songwriter. Remember Elvis Presley's "Kentucky Rain?" Or Ronnie Milsap's "Pure Love?" His songwriting is what will secure a plaque in the Hall of Fame.

    Adrian Tomlin

    Uh uh dude!! Drivin my life away!! Kicks ass!!

  57. Robert James

    This is the last song i bought on 45

    Cooking with TSS

  59. stratstan

    it's funny because was never a country fan when I was young. My mom n dad were big gospel and country fans, but it was that really sad, tear jerking stuff, n I hated it. But when I heard Eddie Rabbitt, I loved his style. I do now love the older stuff, ie...Cash, Hank Williams, Marty Robbins, etc....just not the my dog got ran over, then my mom did! lol good stuff here tho!

  60. Ann M Jones

    my 9 year old loves this song

  64. Ronnie Westmoreland

    Eddie was one of the most underrated country music artists in history. He wrote and sang some great classics, yet he was never truly reconized for his accomplishments. Despite being around consistently for years as a country artists, he's never considered one of the greats. What a shame, because he was way too talented to NOT be noticed for it...

  65. drwestm83

    one of the best country music singers or singers in general to ever live!

  66. nemesisgenius

    Didn't Eddie also sing "Angel In My Eyes?" I know John Michael Montgomery did back in the late 90's. Anyways, thank you for posting this country classic.

  67. Berda Dan

    I love this song, I miss Eddie Rabbitt <3
