After You’ve Gone

Words and Music by Creamer and Layton.

After you’ve gone – and left me crying
After you’ve gone – there’s no denying
You’ll feel blue – you’re gonna be sad
You’ve missed the dearest pal that (slickest partner) you ever had

There’ll come a time – don’t you forget it
(Yeah) There’ll come a time – when you’re gonna regret it
Some day when you get lonely
Your heart will break like mine – (and) you’ll want me only

After you’ve gone (split) – after you’ve gone away (flown the coop)
After we paid – our dues together
You should have stayed – through all that nasty weather
Someday while you’re feeling badly
You’ll need the only one that loves you so madly
But I’ll be gone – yes I’ll be gone – to stay
Yeah after I’ve gone – after I’ve gone away
