THANK GOD AND GREYHOUND
Recorded by Roy Clark
Words and music by Larry Kingston and Ed Nix

[C] I've made a small fortune and you [C7] squandered it [F] all
You shamed me till [C] I feel about one inch [G7] tall
But I [C] thought I loved you and I [C7] hoped you would [F] change
So I gritted my [C] teeth and [G7] didn't com-[C] plain
Now you come to me; with a [C7] simple good-[F] bye
You tell me you're [C] leavin' but you don't tell me [G7] why
Now we're [C] here at the station and you're [C7] getting [F] on
And all I can think of [C] ... is ...
Thank [G7] God and Greyhound, you're [C] gone.

Thank [F] God and Greyhound, you're gone
I didn't know how much longer I could go [G7] on
[C] Watchin' you take the respect out of me
[F] Watchin' you make a total wreck out of [G7] me
That [C] big diesel motor is a-[F] playin' my [C] song
Thank God and [G7] Greyhound, you're [C] gone.

Thank God and Greyhound, you're gone
That load on my mind got lighter when you got on
That shiny old bus is a beautiful sight
With the black smoke a-rollin' up around the tail light
It may sound kinda cruel but I've been silent too long
Thank God and Greyhound, you're gone.

TAG: Thank God and Greyhound, you're gone.
