  • Boy you sure look good there standin' in the doorway in the sunset light
    Maybe I read you wrong thinkin' you could be my Mr. Right
    I was puttin' my heart and soul on the line
    Said you needed some time, just a little more time to make up your mind
    Well it's been long enough
    Time is up

    Bye bye love I'll catch you later
    Got a left foot down on my accelerator and the rear view mirror torn off
    I ain't never lookin' back and that's a fact
    I've tried all I can imagine
    I've begged and pleaded in true lover's fashion
    I've got pride I'm takin' it for a ride
    Bye bye, bye bye my baby, bye bye

    Don't think all those tears are gonna hold me here like they've done before
    You'll find what's left of us in a cloud of dust on highway 4
    Baby what did you expect me to do
    Just sit around and wait on you
    Well I'm through watchin' you just skate around the truth
    And I know it sounds trite
    I've seen the light

    Bye bye love I'll catch you later
    Got a left foot down on my accelerator and the rear view mirror torn off
    'Cause I ain't never lookin' back, and that's a fact
    I've tried all I can imagine
    I've begged and pleaded in true lover's fashion
    I've got pride I'm takin' it for a ride
    Bye bye, bye bye my baby, bye bye

    I'd lost the game I guess
    I did my best to win the part
    Now I'm leavin' here with what's left of my heart
    Bye bye, I'll catch you later
    Got a left foot down on my accelerator and the rear view mirror torn off
    'Cause I ain't never lookin' back you can count on that
    I've tried all I can imagine
    I've begged and pleaded in true lover's fashion
    I've got pride I'm takin' it for a ride
    Bye bye, bye bye my baby, bye bye
    Bye bye
    Oh baby
    Oh
    Bye bye, bye bye my baby, bye byeWriter/s: PHIL VASSER, RORY BOURKE

  • Kate from Poughkeepsie, NySinger/songwriter Phil Vassar co-wrote this song, and he sung it on his Greatest Hits album...I like his version of this song is pretty good! I like Jo Dee's version too!
  • Mark from Lancaster, OhI wish her later songs had the band this one did. The instrumentation is simply amazing: one of the finest arrangements I've heard anywhere.
