Lyrics


You Don’t Wanna Leave

I took five days in Memphis but Memphis was taking me
So I drove to Chicago to study the city streets.
I saw my girl, my lover, she said she’d wear my ring
But as I kept on walking to my back I could hear her sing

Big wheels lay you down in the chords of another town
And you’ll sing yourself to sleep
And if that mockingbird don’t care for a single word
You’ll just change your melody
But you don’t wanna leave

Little Robby was a lover but his picture was his biggest muse
He had all the gifts of Heaven but he traded for a pair of shoes
And his girl how she loved him but he never want to let her in
So when I heard that he left her I said, “Robby did you hear her sing?”

Big wheels lay you down in the chords of another town
And you’ll sing yourself to sleep
And if that mockingbird don’t care for a single word
You’ll just change your melody
But you don’t wanna leave

Well the night’s busted open on those two lanes to anywhere
There’s a kiss on my cheek and it burns so I leave it there
I step on the gas and something begins to shake
It’s my heart and it’s singing, boy, this is more than you can take

Big wheels lay you down in the chords of another town
And you’ll sing yourself to sleep
And if that mockingbird don’t care for a single word
You’ll just change your melody
But you don’t wanna leave
