Watching old video tapes of the old early 1900's blues men. Heard "Leave me" and thought it was a unique angle, as opposed to the usual, 'DON'T leave me' theme.

"Leave Me" copyright April 2, 2020 by Gary E. Andrews
(Chorus)
Leave Me! You don't have to sta-a-ay!
Leave Me! Get out of my wa-a-ay!
Go on and Leave Me!
You never loved me, anyway!

(Verse I)
You spent all my money!
You wasted all my time!
You just think it's funny!
I think it's a crime!

Leave Me! You don't have to sta-a-ay!
Leave Me! Get out of my wa-a-ay!
Go on and Leave Me!
You never loved me, anyway!

(Verse II)
You ran off with my best friend!
You drove off with my car!
You've been gone thirty days!
Who knows where you are?

Leave Me! You don't have to sta-a-ay!
Leave Me! Get out of my wa-a-ay!
Go on and Leave Me!
You never loved me, anyway!

(Verse III)
They fount my car in Memphis,
jacked up on the street,
caught yo' pretty ass walkin',
in yo' stocking feet! Ha! Ha!

Leave Me! You don't have to sta-a-ay!
Leave Me! Get out of my wa-a-ay!
Go on and Leave Me!
You never loved me, anyway!

(Verse IV)
Who's that scratchin' at my door?
You kids get off my porch!
Ooo! It's you baby,
Lookin' hot enough to scorch!

(Coda)
Leave Me! Stop it! Stop it!
You don't have to sta-a-ay!
Leave Me! Quit! Quit ya fool!
Get out of my wa-a-ay!
Go on and Leave Me!
You never loved me, anyway!

(This is the kind of Song you could write a lot of Verses to and then pick the ones you think are best.)

Hi Gary.

This person seems a little slow. After being gone 30 days, I think she's already left.
Reads like it could be old blues style though.

Vic


It's never too late? Yes it is, so do it now.

If, given time, a monkey can write the complete works of Shakespeare maybe there's hope for me.

A man in Sacramento told of seeing a man walking with a dog.
The dog suddenly bolted off down the street.
The man yelled, loudly, repeatedly, commanding the dog to come back.
The dog did not.
Finally, in frustration, the man was heard to say, "Go on then! Fool!"

I think the Singer-Character is doing something similar. A bravado, a defiance against something he can not defy. Bitch is gone. He ain't tellin' her to start today. He's putting up a defensive psychological front as if it's okay with him, that he wants/wanted her to leave. That's what hooked me, the command to "Leave Me!", as if he's still calling the shots. He ain't. He knows it. But it's a protective facade. Face-saving, even if only for his own mind.
The spending of, not just some, but all his money should have been a clue. Many people don't get hip 'til the bank statement comes.
We don't often assess our time expenditure until afterward, when we determine time was 'spent', 'wasted', not 'invested', with expectation of Return-On-Investment (ROI).
His best friend, his car. The thirty days is simply in support of the idea that he's trying to regain some sense of dignity and being in control when every evidence is that he isn't, wasn't and ain't gonna be.
This morning:
They fount my car in Memphis,
jacked up on the street,
caught your pretty ass out walkin'
in yo' stocking feet!
Leave Me! Ha! Ha!
You don't have to sta-a-ay!

See? He's lost money, time, woman, best friend, and car, but he's gonna find joy in her final predicament!
She's just lucky his guitar wasn't in the trunk or she'd be in big trouble! LOL

April 3
Who's that scratchin' at my door?
You kids git off my porch!
Ooh! It's you, baby!
Lookin' hot enough to scorch!
Stop it! Stop it!
Leave Me!
Quit! Quit!
Leave Me!

I saw a picture on Sync Songwriting Collaboration Group, and wrote this Lyric.

"Love That Girl!" copyright April 4, 2020 by Gary E. Andrews.

(Verse I)
You'd better pay attention to that girl,
before she quits payin' attention to you!
Don't act like she don't matter,
like you've got better things to do!
She's tryin' to bring you over,
to a better point of view!
You'd better get to know her,
before she gives up on you!

(Chorus)
Love That Girl!
Be her friend!
Love That Girl!
There's a beginning!
There's an end!
If you love your world,
You'd better Love That Girl!
Love That Girl!

(Verse II)
You'd better get your mind right on that girl,
before she gets upset and all over you!
It's time for conversation,
stop your lies and tell her the truth!
She's tryin' to let you know her!
She's tryin' to get to know you!
You'd better get over your bad self,
before she gives up on you!

Love That Girl!
Be her friend!
Love That Girl!
There's a beginning!
There's an end!
If you love your world,
You'd better Love That Girl!
Love That Girl!

(Bridge)
Do that dance,
You know she wants to do!
Don't blow your chance!
She'll give up on you!

Love That Girl!
Be her friend!
Love That Girl!
There's a beginning!
There's an end!
If you love your world,
You'd better Love That Girl!
Love That Girl!

(Coda)
If you love your world,
You'd better Love That Girl!
Love That Girl!
