Lyrics

Well, I’m sorry that I hurt you honey, sorry that I had to go

And there’s one thing that I’ve got to tell you, one thing that I want you to know

It’s a long and lonely bus ride home from Massachusetts to New Mexico

It’s a long and lonely bus ride home from Massachusetts to New Mexico

Well, I hated to say goodbye to you

It left my heart so full of grief

And if everything wasn’t bad enough

I had a terrible achin’ in my teeth

Well, I’m sorry that I hurt you honey, sorry that I had to go

And there’s one thing that I’ve got to tell you, one thing that I want you to know

It’s a long and lonely bus ride home from Massachusetts to New Mexico

It’s a long and lonely bus ride home from Massachusetts to New Mexico

Well, I’ve never known lovin’ like yours before

The kind that would make me drool

Well, I must have been crazy to let you go

I surely must be a fool

Well, I’m sorry that I hurt you honey, sorry that I had to go

And there’s one thing that I’ve got to tell you, one thing that I want you to know

It’s a long and lonely bus ride home from Massachusetts to New Mexico

It’s a long and lonely bus ride home from Massachusetts to New Mexico

Well, I’m sorry that I hurt you honey, sorry that I had to go

And there’s one thing that I’ve got to tell you, one thing that I want you to know

It’s a long and lonely bus ride home from Massachusetts to New Mexico

It’s a long and lonely bus ride home from Massachusetts to New Mexico
