Dear John Lyrics

by Elton John

I got home today, took a look around
Tryin' to find that girl of mine, she could not be found
All her things were gone, she just left a note
It don't take no mastermind to figure what she wrote

She said, "Dear John, I'm moving on
By this time I'm gonna be long gone
Dear John, c'est la vie, dear John
So long, you've seen the last of me"

I don't want her back, I won't even try
This time ain't just au revoir, this time it's goodbye
We could not go on, livin' like we were
I was just about to write a 'Dear John' note to her

I was gonna say, "Dear John, I'm moving on
By this time I'm gonna be long gone
Dear John, c'est la vie, dear John
So long, you've seen the last of me"

She said, "Dear John, I'm moving on
By this time I'm gonna be long gone
Dear John, c'est la vie, dear John
So long, you've seen the last of me"

Dear John, I'm moving on, by this time I'm gonna
Be long gone, dear John, c'est la vie, dear John, so long
Dear John, I'm moving on, by this time I'm gonna
Be long gone, dear John, c'est la vie, dear John, so long

Dear John, I'm moving on, by this time I'm gonna
Be long gone, dear John, c'est la vie, dear John, so long
Dear John, I'm moving on, by this time I'm gonna
Be long gone, dear John, c'est la vie, dear John, so long
