If you see her, say hello, she might be in Tangier

She left here last early Spring, is living there, I hear

Say for me that Im all right though things get kind of slow

She might think that Ive forgotten her, dont tell her it isnt so

We had a falling-out, like lovers often will

And to think of how she left that night, it still brings me a chill

And though our separation, it pierced me to the heart

She still lives inside of me, weve never been apart

If you get close to her, kiss her once for me

I always have respected her for busting out and getting free

Oh, whatever makes her happy, I wont stand in the way

Though the bitter taste still lingers on from the night I tried to make her stay

I see a lot of people as I make the rounds

And I hear her name here and there as I go from town to town

And Ive never gotten used to it, Ive just learned to turn it off

Either Im too sensitive or else Im getting soft

Sundown, yellow moon, I replay the past

I know every scene by heart, they all went by so fast

If shes passing back this way, Im not that hard to find

Tell her she can look me up, if shes got the time
