  • I got my ticket for the long way 'round
    Two bottle o' whiskey for the way
    And I sure would like some sweet company
    And I'm leavin' tomorrow, why don't you stay?

    When I'm gone
    When I'm gone
    You're gonna miss me when I'm gone
    You're gonna miss me by my hair
    You're gonna miss me everywhere, oh
    You're gonna miss me when I'm gone
    When I'm gone
    When I'm gone
    You're gonna miss me when I'm gone
    You're gonna miss me by my walk
    You're gonna miss me by my talk, oh
    You're gonna miss me when I'm gone

    I got my ticket for the long way 'round
    The one with the prettiest of views
    It's got mountains, it's got rivers
    It's got sights to give you shivers
    But it sure would be prettier with you

    When I'm gone
    When I'm gone
    You're gonna miss me when I'm gone
    You're gonna miss me by my walk
    You're gonna miss me by my talk, oh
    You're gonna miss me when I'm gone
    When I'm gone
    When I'm gone
    You're gonna miss me when I'm gone
    You're gonna miss me by my hair
    You're gonna miss me everywhere
    Oh, you're sure gonna miss me when I'm gone

    When I'm gone
    When I'm gone
    You're gonna miss me when I'm gone
    You're gonna miss me by my walk
    You're gonna miss me by my talk, oh
    You're gonna miss me when I'm gone Writer/s: A. P. Carter, Heloise Maud Tunstall-Behrens, Luisa Amanda Gerstein Vallejo

  • George Pope from Vancouver BcI herd the song once, on the radio, looked it up on YouTube, found out it was from the movie, then watched the movie, just to hear her sing it again. . . The cups' sound is hypnotic, & her voice is beautiful, too.
