Robbins, Marty - The Beginning Of Goodbye Lyrics

Last night I heard a record playin'
On the radio, as I walked through the door
And the song revived some sweet old memories
'Cause I knew I've heard the tune somewhere before

I stopped a moment and I listened
And then I finally realized
That you were here the night you wrote it
A song called The Beginning Of Goodbye

I knew, that night, that it was over
And that I couldn't keep you. Should I try?
'Cause you were really talkin' to me
When you wrote The Beginning Of Goodbye

You left, and patiently I waited
'Cause I believed you'd write to me
But you don't have time there for an old friend
With your new friends in Nashville, Tennessee

I knew, that night, that it was over
And that I couldn't keep you. Should I try?
'Cause you were really talkin' to me
When you wrote The Beginning Of Goodbye

  5. Axis and Allies Boardgame

    Everytime Marty opened his mouth to sing, it was pure gold. He left us much too soon. I was 12 years old when I came home from school that day in December of 1982, and I cried when my mom told me he was gone.
