I filled my ol’ car up with gas
North to Chicago I was goin’
Just drove ten miles and I turned around
I couldn’t leave without you knowin’
I had to see you one last time
And be with you once before I go
To talk with you just one more time
And then I’m bound north to Chicago

Still I wish there’s something you would say
To make me change my mind and stay
But I guess that it’s got to be this way
Then I guess I’m bound north to Chicago

Please don’t be angry that I’ve come
I know you didn’t want to see me
Well I know I said I wouldn’t call
And I tried my best love please believe me
Well everything I own is in the car
You can see I’m leavin’ so you must know
That I’ve only come to say goodbye
And then I’m bound north to Chicago

Still I wish there’s something you would say…
