"Leave Me If You Want To" lyrics - THE CHAD MITCHELL TRIO

"Leave Me If You Want To"

Way down in Columbus, Georgia
I want to go back in Tennessee
Way down in Columbus Stockade
My friends all turned their backs on me

Well you can go and leave me if you want to
Never let it cross your mind
If in your heart you love another
You can leave me little darling, I don't mind

Last night as I lay sleeping
I dreamed I held you in my arms
Whan I awoke I was mistaken
I was still behind them prison bars

Many a night with you I've rambled
Many an hour I've spent with you
For I'd want your heart forever
Now you've gone and left me blue
