I've seen love go by my door
It's never been this close before
Never been so easy or so slow
I've been shooting in the dark too long
When somethin's not right it's wrong
You're gonna make me lonesome when you go.

Dragon clouds so high above
I've only known careless love
It always hit me from below
But this time 'round it's more correct
Right on target so direct
You're gonna make me lonesome when you go.

Purple clover, Queen Ann lace
Crimson hair across your face
You could make me cry if you don't know
Can't remember what i was thinkin' of
You might be spoilin' me too much, love
You're gonna make me lonesome when you go.

Flowers on the hillside bloomin' crazy
Crickets talkin' back an' forth in rhyme
Blue river runnin' slow an' lazy
I could stay with you forever an' never realize the time.

Situations have ended sad
Relationships have all been bad
Mine've been like Verlaine's an' Rimbaud
But there's no way i can compare
All them scenes to this affair
You're gonna make me lonesome when you go.

You're gonna make me wonder what i'm doin'
Stayin' far behind without you
You're gonna make me wonder what i'm sayin'
You're gonna make me give myself a good talkin' to.

I'll look for you in old Honolulu
San Francisco, Ashtabula
You gonna have to leave me now, i know
But i'll see you in the sky above
In the tall grass, in the ones i love
You're gonna make me lonesome when you go.  up

Slightly different lyrics 

I've seen love go by my door
It's never been this close before
Never seem so easy or so slow
I been shooting in the dark too long
When somethin's not right it must be wrong
You're gonna make me lonesome when you go.

Dragon clouds so high above
I've only known careless love
It'd always hit me from below
But this time 'round it's more correct
Right on target so direct
You're gonna make me lonesome when you go.

Purple clover, Queen Ann lace
Crimson hair across your face
You could make me cry if you don't know
I can't remember what i [ am/was ] thinkin' of
You might be spoilin' me too much, love
You're gonna make me lonesome when you go.

Flowers on the hillside bloomin' crazy
Crickets talkin' back an' forth in rhyme
Blue river runnin' slow an' [ lazy/hazy ]
I could stay with you forever an' never realize the time.

Situations have ended sad
Relationships have all been bad
Mine have been like Verlaine's an' Rimbaud
But there's no way i can compare
All [ those/them ] scenes to this affair
You're gonna make me lonesome when you go.

You're gonna make me wonder what i'm doin'
Stayin' far behind without you
You're gonna make me wonder what i'm sayin'
You're gonna make me give myself a good talkin' to.

I'll look for you in old Honolulu
San Francisco, Ashtabula
You're gonna [ /have to ] leave me now, i know
But i'll [look for/see ] you in the sky above
In the tall grass, in the ones i love
You're gonna make me lonesome when you go.  up
