AL KOOPER lyrics - Loretta (Union Turnpike Eulogy)

AL KOOPER
"Loretta (Union Turnpike Eulogy)"
(Kooper)

I think we should talk this over now before it gets too late
Darlin' I think you got to think about it now
Ya might be makin' a big mistake
Can the love we shared for so long be over the hill?
If he asks you to leave tomorrow
Don't tell him that you will

Oh Loretta
You oughta know better
Than to try and leave me
Oh Loretta
You gotta know better
Than to try and leave me

Oh darlin I gave you anything there was to give
How can ya just turn your back
And take away my reason to live?
My mind's filled up with flashes of us lyin side by side
Now five years later honey
Is it really that hard to decide?

Oh Loretta
You oughta know better
Than to try and leave me
Oh Loretta
You gotta know better
Than to try and leave me
