Walk Away
William J. Hall - June, 1980

  1 When it was over
  2 I put my hands in my pockets
  3 Watching you walk away
  4 And I stood there
  5 In my blue denim jacket
  6 Wishing I knew what to say
  7 I remember
  8 I thought for a moment
  9 We'd meet again someday
  10 I took my guitar
  11 And rode into the sunset
  12 Back across the Hudson River Bay
  13 Looks like you guessed wrong about me
  14 Didn't you, didn't you?
  15 Looks like you guessed wrong about me
  16 Didn't you, didn't you?
 
  17 You were walking
  18 With the reigning aristocrat
  19 Through the doors of the cafe
  20 You were waiting
  21 To see how he would react
  22 Before you decided to stay
  23 I heard you saying
  24 You didn't think I was as good as that
  25 Years ago, last time you heard me play
  26 But I was just riding
  27 On off into the sunset
  28 Back across the Hudson River Bay
  29 Looks like you guessed wrong about me
  30 Didn't you, didn't you?
  31 Looks like you guessed wrong about me
  32 Didn't you, didn't you?
 
  33 I always knew
  34 This is just part of my crazy dreams coming true
  35 You thought I'd sell out too
  36 Didn't you, didn't you?
 
  37 And right on time
  38 After the last song in the last set
  39 You came back stage with a bouquet
  40 Like some feline
  41 Kind of punk Marie Antoinette
  42 About to pounce on her prey
  43 You fed me some pick-up line
  44 Just to see what you could get
  45 Delivered to you on a silver tray
  46 But I turned
  47 And walked alone into the sunset
  48 Hah!
  49 Looks like you guessed wrong again about me
  50 Didn't you, didn't you?
  51 Yeah, it looks like you guessed wrong about me
  52 Didn't you, ah, didn't you?
  53 Didn't you?
  54 Didn't you?
  55 Didn't you?
  56 Yeah!
