I'm Gone

by Dov Hammer



The first song released from Dov Hammer's upcoming album "BlueSoul"!
Dov Hammer's tale of trial, tribulation and disappointment told with lots of dry humor, soulful singing and a classic New Orleans style second -ine beat, with lots of percussion!


I'm Gone
Lyrics and music by Dov Hammer ©

A change is due, need something new
Time for a brand new song
Stop reading the news, get back to the Blues
Before anyone sees that I'm gone
Time speeds up and time slows down
But it never waits for no-one
You got a lifetime of being old, just a moment of being young
I spent too many sleepless nights wondering what went wrong
I'm gone, I'm gone, I done stayed around here way too long
I'm gone,I'm gone, I done stayed around here way too long

Spent more money then a millionaire,
I could've owned half the town
Drank enough whiskey to fill the sea,
But I never quite did drown
Mama said you're on the wrong path, son,
Papa – he just frowned
I ran through the red lights at full speed,
And never once looked down
Life on the edge has a charm of its own
I'm gone, I'm gone, I done stayed around here way too long
I'm gone, I'm gone, I done stayed around here way too long

Against all odds I'm still in the game
But even water grinds down a stone
It gets so crowded on the gravy train
But you pay the price all alone
All of my fair weather friends have flown, taken off to parts unknown
Left me standing all alone, in my glass house,
throwing stones

The earth just keeps on turning while you’re at your phone…

I'm gone, I’m gone,I done stayed around here way too long
I'm gone, I’m gone I done stayed around here
I’ve been laying around here
Whined and complained around here
way too long
