  • To each his own it's plain to see
    To walk alone you have to be
    It's all for you and all for me, you'll see

    I'm gonna miss you, yes, I will
    No matter who you are, I'll love you still
    For my life is my conscience, the seeds I sow
    I just wanted to let you know

    Familiar faces that I've seen
    Turnin' red and turnin' green
    They just got caught with writing on their sleeve, I guess I'll leave

    I'm gonna miss you, yes, I will
    No matter who you are, I'll love you still
    Will you cancel my papers and lock the door
    'Cause I ain't gonna be 'round no more

    Will I make it through the summer
    Breaking ties with the old and new
    Losing one just gains another
    There is nothing I can do

    I'm gonna miss you, yes, I will
    No matter who you are I'll love you still
    For my life is my conscience, the seeds I sow
    And I just wanted to let you know

    I'm gonna miss you, yes, I will
    No matter who you are, I'll love you still
    Will you cancel my papers and lock the door
    'Cause I ain't gonna be 'round no more

    I'm gonna miss you, yes, I will
    No matter who you are I'll love you still
    For my life is my conscience, the seeds I sow
    And I just wanted to let you know

    I'm gonna miss you... Writer/s: GERRY BECKLEY
