The Casinos Lyrics

"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 hit 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
