lyrics

I knew a woman from Mississippi

She wanted to see the world

Her boyfriend told her she was bein' silly

To stay and be his girl

So at night she dreamt of Paris

And of glaciers white as pearl

How many times do you try before you say goodbye?

I knew a boy from West Virginia

Who wanted to be a star

Skipped school, went straight for New York City

Worked his nights at a bar

But too many years without a break

And your wounds begin to scar

How many times do you try before you say goodbye?

My friend never spoke to his father

Just didn't see eye to eye

Last month he got a call from his mother

To see him before he died

He stood by as he lay sleeping

And wondered where the years rolled by

How many times do you try before you say goodbye?

How many times do you try before you say goodbye?
