You Never Told Her
written by John Hiatt

You should have been a gypsy
With a diamond in your tooth
You could have told my fortune
You could have told the truth

About the roses in the tmmbstones
And the passon in my eyes
But you had to go and tell me
That true love never dies

And now I'm crying on your suitcase full of clothes
You never told me you were gonna go

Go down to the station
Catch a ride to anyplace
This ain't no vacation
Whip that tourist of your face

Now this time you left forever
And forever's where you're bound
And I won't be there to catch you
As You fall from town to town

Now I'm still crying for a love I used to know
You never told me you were gonna go
You never told me you were gonna go
