Pride, Charley - I'll Be Leaving Alone Lyrics




Yes, I'll buy you a drink
If you'd like me to
I might even dance
A slow one with you

Lord, knows you're a looker
And, honey, what's more
It's not hard to see
What you're looking for

'Cause you're as tempting a woman
As I've ever seen
But there's someone in Dallas
Who's trusting in me

She's the mother of my children
I'm the rock she leans on
So thank you but no thank you
I'll be leaving alone

As we dance in the shadows
And you're holding me tight
I can feel the invitation
I've seen in your eyes

And the soft light and the music
And the wine's rosy glow
Ain't making it easy
For me to say no

'Cause you're as tempting a woman
As I've ever seen
But there's someone in Dallas
Who's trusting in me

She's the mother of my children
I'm the rock she leans on
So thank you but no thank you
I'll be leaving alone

So thank you but no thank you
I'll be leaving alone

    Such a terrific song that reigns as the 19th #1 single of the year 1977...It topped the charts back on the week of July 9, 1977 for Charley...in all, there were a total of 30 songs that went to #1 that year.. Great upload and share.. Plus the sound quality is FANTASTIC on this "original" version!...Happy weekend to you Mr. Gauntt!...Take Care! :)

    One of my very favorite CP tunes. For whatever reason, this one hasn't been heard as much through the years as some of his other hit songs. Good stuff Jack!!!

    @shuffle877 i like it a lot too, once on youtube you start to notice big hits that have slipped through and been forgotten
