How I'm Going Out

  • Someday somebody's gonna stop and look
    Or scratch their head and say
    "What happened to him? It's been a while since I heard that name"
    The story goes
    I told one last joke, bum one more smoke
    And then paid my tab and just disappeared one day

    I've kicked around this old town long enough to see
    The one's who left to soon
    And the ones who didn't know when to leave

    And when it's my turn to jump off this carousel
    I'm gonna ride on that white horse and run like hell
    Be thankful for the friends I've made
    The hungry years, the glory days
    Give 'em one more song and lay this guitar down
    That's how I'm going out

    When I go
    I'll be another page torn away, a memory made
    Another ghost on music road
    But I can say
    I gave it hell, I rang the bell
    But I'll know when there's no more dreams to chase

    And when it's my turn to jump off this carousel
    I'm gonna ride on that white horse and run like hell
    Be thankful for the friends I've made
    The hungry years, the glory days
    Give 'em one more song and lay this guitar down
    That's how I'm going out
    That's how I'm going out

    And when it's my turn to jump off this carousel
    I'm gonna ride on that white horse and run like hell
    No slowing down, no looking back
    Let the credits roll and fade to black
    Give 'em one more song and lay this guitar down
    Sing one more song and lay this guitar down
    That's how I'm going out

    That's how I'm going out
    Someday somebody's gonna stop and look
    Or scratch their head and say
    "What happened to him? It's been a while since I heard that name" Writer/s: Jessi Alexander, Jon Randall
