Messina, Jo Dee - Bye Bye Lyrics

Boy you sure look good there standin' in the doorway in the sunset light
Maybe I read you wrong thinkin' you could be my Mr. Right
I was puttin' my heart and soul on the line
Said you needed some time, just a little more time to make up your mind
Well it's been long enough
Time is up

Bye bye love, I'll catch you later
Got a lead foot down on my accelerator and the rearview mirror torn off
I ain't never lookin' back. And that's a fact.
I've tried all I can imagine
I've begged and pleaded in true lover's fashion
I've got pride, I'm takin' it for a ride
Bye bye, bye bye my baby, bye bye

Don't think all those tears are gonna hold me here like they've done before
You'll find what's left of us in a cloud of dust on highway 4
Baby what did you expect me to do
Just sit around and wait on you
Well I'm through watchin' you just skate around the truth
And I know it sounds trite
I've seen the light

Bye bye love, I'll catch you later
Got a lead foot down on my accelerator and the rearview mirror torn off
'Cause I ain't never lookin' back, and that's a fact.
I've tried all I can imagine
I've begged and pleaded in true lover's fashion
I've got pride, I'm takin' it for a ride
Bye bye, bye bye my baby, bye bye

I'd lost the game I guess
I did my best to win the part
Now I'm leavin' here with what's left of my heart.
Bye bye, I'll catch you later
Got a lead foot down on my accelerator and the rearview mirror torn off
'Cause I ain't never lookin' back.
You can count on that.
I've tried all I can imagine
I've begged and pleaded in true lover's fashion
I've got pride, I'm takin' it for a ride
Bye bye, bye bye my baby, bye bye

Bye bye
Ooh baby
Oh oh
Bye bye, bye bye my baby, bye bye

  1. Amanda Powell

    You sound like Reba

  2. Xavier Xanatos

    He cheated?

  3. Joseph Wake

    I remember my mom driving me and my 3 siblings around in our old tan Chevrolet minivan, when this song came on the radio she rolled down all the windows and we all sung along, wind in our hair, loud as can be. Man, I miss those days.


    I love the car Jo Dee Messina. and of course your songs...:)

  5. Mary Brown

    I should have told my second husband this to when I found out he found his ex wife and kids

  6. ryan spangler

    This reminds me of LeAnn Rimes “One Way Ticket” video.. man I miss the REAL ladies of country music... 90’s powerhouses

  7. Candice Machella

    This how I feel about first Baptist Church in Franklinton la lol

  11. Zach Love

    My mom was a big fan of Jodie in the 90's and she listens to her every time she's cleaning. 90s country brings up such great memories from my childhood

  12. Joey Pinkard

    2020 anyone??

  13. giggitygiggity

    2020 Will always listen to her.

  14. Lee Sands

    It had to be so awkward filming that in the street with no music.

  15. Topher Drew

    This gives me so much joy.

  16. Garret Massa

    Anyone know who the guy in the video is? He looks like Dustin Claire... Gannicus in the show Spartacus from Starz

  17. Dwayne Greene

    Goin thru a break up. Country music is my savior! I aint never lookin back and that's a fact

  18. Mike Davenport

    Luv this song .

    Mike Davenport

    Couldn't have said it better !

  19. Justin Wilder

    Takes me back to ridding around in my moms 01 Taurus when these songs were new headed to school. These are not only nostalgic but classics, if you can listen to this 20 years later and still think it’s a good song instead of saying “this songs old” you had it.. 90s00’s music is so underrated

  20. mike stocke

    Redheads in a 65 GTO, there ya go!

  21. Jennifer wellman

    What the hell did I see in him? Ugh!!!


    Anyone else listening in 2020?

  23. Jeremy Stone

    poor girl struggled so hard when she got to nashville, (years!!!!)but when tim mcgraw made it ..he helped her tremendously.

  24. Arthur Johnston

    My favorite female country singer by a county mile🏎...............🚓

  25. Emma Weaver

    I love songs. Jo d

  26. Karly Holler


  27. Holland Fray

    This song was one of my favorites as a kid! Still remember the words, still remember dancing around the living room when the video came on CMT. Pretty sure that's why I never put up with any BS in my relationships now...

  28. Kayla Peacock

    All I got to say is don't give a guy 2 months to turn his ways around. He'll man up fast or he won't at all.

  29. Stephanie Lee Bartels

    She has a GTO!!!

  30. Vanessa Leong

    best song

  31. thegreat

    She’s so iconic, when I look at her i think one word, “legend”.

  32. Paul Gee

    I really like the song, always have, but I can't help thinking it's one of those "you wont commit" (ie to marriage) things. As such you cant really blame the guy not wanting to lose half (or maybe all) of that nice little house.

  33. ClearanceOnly GAGurl

    Welcomed country music to my listening ear at the age of 11. Been on a binge of good country classics all day....and this was on my list😍

  34. Low Dose

    I could swear the creepy Manson boyfriend in this video, is the same guy showing a woman a severed head in the Toby Keith "I love This Bar" video.

  35. jlh

    most joyful singer i ever saw - joy to listen to

  36. K- Dizzle

    That dude looks kin to Charles Manson

    Joe Dirt

    It's a good thing Jo Dee Messina dumped his ass then huh 😂😆😂😆😂😆

  37. Kati Sheets

    I used to have some keychain from Ames that played the famous," bye bye my baby bye bye." Clip and I could change it the other song was NSYNC bye bye bye . I was born in 1990 so this brings back my childhood memories.

  38. Amby Hymel


  39. Joy Militala

    omg i didnt know this woman until a couple days ago, but im such a fan now. her music is so feel good. Wow.

  40. Jeff Hall

  41. Terry Ickes

    This is what I said to my cheating, lowlife, user girlfriend after all I did for her. It's not just guys that cheat. Bye bye baby bye bye! I never looked back.... Left her crying in the yard as I pulled away :D

    Dave Richardson

  80. Laoagan Lester

    I miss old Country Music from the original styles and it's sub-genre (Honky Tonk, Southern Rock, Blue Grass, Gospel Country etc.) to the 80' and 90's style. Sadly, today's Country Music is tainted by modern pop styles or other modern styles that destroys the purity of the music. Taylor Swift, Miley Cyrus, Georgia-Florida line & etc. The original soul and essence is lost that instead of the lyric's messages are focused on family, faith in God, true love, the truth about the positive and negative aspects of life and rural values, it is being replaced by total non-sense just like most of the other modern music of today.

    KeKway Blaze

    You do realize old country music was about drinking, cheating too right? Not just holy Gospel music.. Even going back as far as Hank Williams drinking and cheating were staples of country music songs.. You must be referring to Christian country music.

  81. Amber Davis

    I love this song so much fun 😍😍😍😍😍

  82. shelby

    lol the 90's music videos were so melodramatic

  83. Screaming Snufkins

    She looks like a female Crowley from Good Omens. It had to be said.

  84. Lisa P

    I love this song so much! 90s country is the best!

  85. lagaman11

    She was incredible! Wish she would make a come-back!

  86. Jorge Sanchez

    The guy is lord farquad

  87. Hazel Eyes

    1998 was the year I left my ex and never looked back fr! And still hear from him. But I never went back and it's this song. Wishing you Jo Dee Messina the very best of health.

  88. Taysia J

    Thank you Jo Dee for giving us this timeless classic!!

  89. Cleto La


  90. Giovanni Socci
