Sail on down the line
About a half a mile or so
And I don't really wanna know
Where you're going

Maybe once or twice you see
Time after time I tried
To hold on to what we've got
But now you're going

And I don't mindAbout the things you're gonna say, Lord
I gave all my money and my time
I know it's a shame
But I'm giving you back your nameYeah, yeah

Yes, I'll be on my way
I won't be back to stay
I guess I'll move along
I'm looking for a good time

Sail on down the line
Ain't it funny how the time can go
Friends say they told me so
But it doesn't matter

It was plain to see that a
Small town boy like me
Just wasn't your cup of tea
I was wishful thinking

I gave you my heart and I tried to make you happy
And you gave me nothing in return
You know, it ain't so hard to say
"Would you please just go away"Yeah, yeah

I've thrown away the blues
I'm tired of being used
I want everyone to know
I'm looking for a good time, good timeYeahI gave you my heart and I tried to make you happy
And you gave me nothing in return
You know, it ain't so hard to say
"Would you please just go away"

Yeah, yeah

Got nothing more to loseI'm tired of being used
I want everyone to know
I'm looking for a good time, good time

Oh, sail on, honey
Good times never felt so good
Sail on, honey
Good times never felt so good
Sail on, sugar
Good times never felt so good
