Long Walk Off a Tall Rock

This song is by George Jones.

People keep talkin' and rockin' the boat,
Makin' trouble for you and me,
Their favorite pastime is diggin' up the past times
Little things that used to be.
Before I met you I'll bet you we made time
But to the past we've never returned,
So they can take a long walk off a tall rock,
As far as we're concerned.

Yeah, let 'em keep flappin' 'bout things that used to happen,
We'll take it with a little grain of salt,
'Cause I know, you know, things that happened long ago
Came to a screechin' halt.
They're very little people with minds to match
And I guess they never will learn,
So they can take a long walk off a tall rock,
As far as we're concerned.

They'll never know how it feels to get better,
If they've never made a mistake,
They're so afraid that we're gonna be happy,
They can't bear to give us a break.
They're very little people with minds to match
And I guess they never will learn,
So they can take a long walk off a tall rock,
As far as we're concerned.

Yeah, let 'em keep flappin' 'bout things that used to happen,
We'll take it with a little grain of salt,
'Cause I know, you know, things that happened long ago
Came to a screechin' halt.
They're very little people with minds to match
And I guess they never will learn,
So they can take a long walk off a tall rock,
As far as we're concerned.
