Liner Notes: 

just a little last-minute skirmish fun. horribly sung in the wrong key (where's my capo?). not particularly clever in the lyrics department. still had fun! Thanks Corinne!

Lyrics: 

you say
you're unhappy
I say
me too
you say
I'm the reason that you're leavin'
and I never loved you

After you've gone
I'll be happy
After you've gone
I'll be glad
I'll try to remember
the good times we had
and try to forget
all the bad

you say
you're leavin'
I say
goodbye
you say
it's forever and forever
and I never asked you why

After you've gone
I'll be happy
After you've gone
I'll be glad
I'll try to remember
the good times we had
and try to forget
all the bad

goodbye
don't cry
never ask why
just look up to the sky
and say goodbye

After you've gone
I'll be happy
After you've gone
I'll be glad
I'll try to remember
the good times we had
and try to forget
all the bad

Tuneful and soulful melody and playing. Great song start! BTW way the player worked for me.

Beautiful song, very sincere, very strong. Love your singing. Don't like hearing about horrible singing when it's so gorgeous! Brilliant song and very powerful take on skirmish.

Too much protesting in the liner notes, I think! Nice skirmishing and I think this is a keeper of a song. You've got a splendid knack for memorable melodies, and this is another one!

Nice one John. The chorus has a great hook, lyrically and melodically

The chorus is really strong. Doesn't sound wrong key to me but maybe you want to sing higher. eh...that's for rocker kids.

I like your vocal on this song. We both (well almost we all) wrote happy that you're gone songs. I'm not gonna argue with your liner notes, but this isn't a bad write, imo.

íts a pretty good skirmish! your vocal can carry this through fine! nice job

I don't think the key matters in this song. The vocals sounded right to me, so music theory be damned. Smile Nice one!
