Allman Brothers Band – Leavin’ Lyrics

By Gregg Allman

Transcribed by Paul Gongola

Mama stood cryin’ at the back door

Papa’s lacin’ on his leavin’ shoes

Little Joe’s blowin’ on the horn outdoors

I’ve seen enough, I can’t take no more

And I’m leavin’

Might go to Philadelphia, PA

Might wind up in Boston, I just can’t say

Got my axe in one hand

Got my Greyhound ticket in the other hand

And I’m leavin’

I tell you I’m leavin’

Gonna play my blues

Yes I’m leavin’

Got nothing to lose

Well, I’m dying to get the hell out of here

Right Away

Mama stood cryin’ at the back door

Papa’s lacin’ on his leavin’ shoes

Little Joe’s blowin’ on the horn outdoors

I’ve seen enough, I can’t take no more

And I’m leavin’

I said I’m leavin’

Gonna play my guitar

I’m leavin’

Don’t care if I’m a big star

I’m leavin’ this old ghetto

Right away, right away
