write this down lyrics – george strait

“write this down”

i never saw the end in sight; fools are kind of blind.
thought everything was going alright, but i was running out of time.
’cause you had one foot out the door, i swear i didn’t see
but if you’re really going away, here’s some final words from me.

baby, write this down, take a little note to remind you in case you didn’t know,
tell yourself i love you and i don’t want you to go, write this down.
take my words, read ’em every day, keep ’em close by, don’t you let ’em fade away,
so you’ll remember what i forgot to say, write this down.

i’ll sign it at the bottom of the page, i’ll swear under oath
’cause every single word is true, and i think you need to know,
so use it as a bookmark, stick it on your ‘frigerator door,
hang it in a picture frame up above the mantel where you’ll see it for sure.


you can find a chisel, i can find a stone.
folks will be reading these words, long after we’re gone.


oh i love you and i don’t want you to go, baby write this down.
