Bobby Jean
Well, I came by your house the other day
Your mother said you went away
She said there was nothing that I could've done
There was nothing nobody could say

Now, me and you, we've known each other
Ever since we were sixteen
I wished I would have known, I wished I could have called you
Just to say goodbye, Bobby Jean

Now, you hung with me when all the others
Turned away, turned up their nose
We liked the same music, we liked the same bands
We liked the same clothes

Yeah, we told each other that we were the wildest
The wildest things we'd ever seen
And I wished you would have told me, I wished I could have talked to you
Just to say goodbye, Bobby Jean

Now, we went walking in the rain
Talking about the pain that from the world we hid
Now, there ain't nobody, nowhere, nohow
Gonna ever understand me the way you did

Well, maybe you'll be out there on that road somewhere
In some bus or train, traveling alone
In some motel room there'll be a radio playing
And you'll hear me sing this song

Well, if you do, you'll know I'm thinking of you
And all the miles in between
And I'm just calling one last time not to change your mind
But just to say I miss you, baby
Good luck, goodbye, Bobby Jean
