And you know the sun’s settin’ fast
And just like they say
Nothing good ever lasts
Well, go on now and kiss it goodbye
But hold on to your lover
‘Cause your heart’s bound to die
Go on now and say goodbye
To our town
To our town
Can’t you see the sun’s settin’ down
On our town
On our town
Goodnight

Up the street beside the red neon lights
That’s where I met my baby on one hot summer night
He was the tender and I ordered a beer
It’s been forty years and I’m still sitting here
But you know the sun’s settin’ fast
And just like they say
Nothing good ever lasts
Well, go on now and kiss it goodbye
But hold on to your lover
‘Cause your heart’s bound to die
Go on now and say goodbye to our town
To our town
Can’t you see the sun’s settin’ down
On our town
On our town
Goodnight

It’s here I had my babies and I had my first kiss
I’ve walked down Main Street in the cold morning mist
Over there is where I bought my first car
It turned over once but then it never went far
And I can see the sun’s settin’ fast
And just like they say
Nothing good ever lasts
Well go on now and kiss it goodbye
But hold on to your lover
‘Cause your heart’s bound to die
Go on now and say goodbye
To our town
To our town
Can’t you see the sun’s settin’ down
On our town
On our town
Goodnight

I buried my Mama and I buried my Pa
They sleep up the street beside that pretty brick wall
I bring them flowers about every day
But I just gotta cry when I think what they’d say
If they could see how the sun’s settin’ fast
And just like they say
Nothing good ever lasts
Well, go on now and kiss it goodbye
But hold on to your lover
‘Cause your heart’s bound to die
Go on now and say goodbye
To our town
To our town
Can’t you see the sun’s settin’ down
On our town
On our town
Goodnight

Now I sit on the porch and watch the lightning-bugs fly
But I can’t see too good
I got tears in my eyes
I’m leaving tomorrow but I don’t wanna go
I love you my town
You’ll always live in my soul
But I can see the sun’s settin’ fast
And just like they say
Nothing good ever lasts
Well, go on, I gotta kiss you goodbye
But I’ll hold to my lover
‘Cause my heart’s ’bout to die
Go on now and say goodbye
To my town
To my town
I can see the sun has gone down
On my town
On my town
Goodnight
Goodnight
