  • Right there's the high school where we met
    We'd sneak out back for a couple kisses and a cigarette
    And that parking lot was our first date
    And her momma slammed the door when I dropped her off too late

    She's gone
    Chasing that highway wind
    She's gone
    She ain't coming back again

    This ain't nothing
    Nothing but a goodbye town
    These streets are only bringing me down
    Gotta find a way to finally get out
    Out of this goodbye town

    We sat down on those courthouse steps
    Fourth of July those fireworks over our heads
    And they'd ring the bells of that little church
    No there ain't nowhere I can look that doesn't hurt

    She's gone
    But I still feel her on my skin
    She's gone
    But she ain't coming back again

    This ain't nothing
    Nothing but a goodbye town
    These streets are only bringing me down
    Gotta find a way to finally get out
    Out of this goodbye town

    I can't erase the memories
    And I can't burn the whole place down

    No this ain't nothing
    Nothing but a goodbye town
    To hell if I'm sticking around
    Gotta find a way to finally get out
    Out of this goodbye town
    Oh yeah
    Out of this goodbye town
    I'm out of this town
    So out of this town

    Oh oh oh oh oh

    You'll be just a memory in the back of my mind
    You'll be just a memory yeah
    Oh, somewhere in the back of my mind
    In the back of my mind, yeah
    One day you're gonna look back at what we had
    You're gonna think of me
    You're gonna think of me
    When I'm long gone
    I'll be long gone Writer/s: Charles Kelley, Dave Haywood, Hillary Scott, Josh Kear
