We Can’t Go On This Way

cd cover: Jealous of the Moon(J. B. Lenoir/Conrad Music)

I don’t want to forgive you; you don’t want to forgive me.
Darlin’ don’t you see we ain’t gonna let one and other be.
We got to realize—we can’t go on this way.
We can fly high and fly on away,
But we got to come back to one and other one day.

You stayed out all last night; I stayed out all night, too.
Darlin’ can’t you see what we put one and other through.
We got to realize—we can’t go on this way.
We can fly high and fly on away,
But we got to come back to one and other one day.

I believe you love me and I know I love you, too.
Darlin’ don’t you see–this will never do.
We got to realize—we can’t go on this way.
We can fly high and fly on away,
But we got to come back to one and other one day.

Scott Ainslie: vocals and 1931 National Guitar
Steven Roues: harmonica

This is my favorite J. B. Lenoir tune. Here we have a southern version of karma. In this song, running away clearly isn’t going to do any good.
