The Casinos Lyrics

"Then You Can Tell Me Goodbye"

Prom night dancing to Then You Can Tell Me Goodbye.

The Casinos lyrics for the song "Then You Can Tell Me Goodbye" was written by John D. Loudermilk.

The song became a Top Ten hit for The Casinos in 1967, reaching #6 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.

This was pretty much after the end of the doo-wop era.

Will anyone ever record songs like this again?

A Beautiful song with perfect harmony and words you can actually understand, make sense and have a meaning.

"Sweeten my coffee with a morning Kiss...
Soften my dreams with your sighs."

Whew!

Time has made this song even better. A Classic vinyl record.

The original group was from Cincinnati, Ohio, led by Gene Hughes. After leaving the group, Gene Hughes became a country music promoter.

He died in 2008 at age 67 following complications from an automobile accident.

For a live performance, this is as close to the original vinyl record as you will find. Even the organ player does just a fantastic job on this performance.

Enjoy this wonderful song and the Casinos lyrics provided...


"Then You Can Tell Me Goodbye"
1967 #6 song for The Casinos
Written by John D. Loudermilk

Kiss me each morning for a million years
Hold me each evening by your side
Tell me you'll love me for a million years
Then if it don't work out...Then if it don't work out
Then you can tell me goodbye

Sweeten my coffee with a morning kiss
Soften my dreams with your sighs
Tell me you'll love me for a million years
Then if it don't work out...Then if it don't work out
Then you can tell me goodbye

Organ solo...

If you must go, oh no, I won't grieve
If you wait a lifetime before you leave

Then if you must go...Mmm, I won't tell you no
Just so that we can say we tried
Tell me you'll love me for a million years
Then if it don't work out...Then if it don't work out
Then you can tell me goodbye
