Original song (words and music by Britt Arnesen)


It's so hard to make a stand
When I'm on the losing end
Of goodbye
Took a stroll on down the branch
To the place we first held hands
And said goodbye to my good name

Heard a tale about myself
Crazy nonsense people sell
Crazy games they play
Blowing smoke right in my face
Just to put me in my place
And say goodbye to my good name

I'm the rose you're the wine
We sing in syncopated time
A winging prayer
Rough our road
Weak our vine
We take a wreckin (reckon) every time
And say goodbye to my good name

Go on and break what you cannot mend
In another life we could have been
I ain't wed to my mistakes
Every day's a chance to change
Or say goodbye to my good name
