Comin’ Home To Say GoodbyePDF
Words & Music by Joe LaMay

I left Frisco yesterday
I had some good times with my friends
I never let on that I knew
That you and I were at the end
‘Cause I’ve learned too well to pretend

I’m comin home to see you one more time
Cause you’re the one who made me cry
I’m comin home to see you one more time
I’m comin’ home to say goodbye

The mountains and the coast are clear
I see the lights of Monterey
Oh California my old friend
Let’s not forget those early days
Fore I may never pass this way

Chorus

Now I’m prepared to face the pain
Of leaving one I love so well
But you’re a stranger in my life
So why not end this living hell
Then only time alone will tell

Updated 3rd verse:
Now I'm prepared to face the pain
Of leavin' one I loved so true
But we're just strangers once again
And there ain't nothin' we can do
So I'll just say goodbye to you

Chorus

The mountains and the coast are clear
I see the lights of big L.A.
Oh California my old friend
Let’s not forget those better days
Fore I may never pass this way

Chorus
