“If I'd leave here tomorrow
Would you still remember me?
For I must be traveling on, now
'Cause there's too many places I've got to see
And if I'd stayed here with you, girl
Well, things just couldn't be the same
'Cause I'm as free as a bird now
And this bird you cannot change
Bye, bye, baby, it’s been a sweet love
Though this feeling I can't change
But please don't take it so badly
'Cause the good Lord knows that I'm to blame
And if I'd stayed here with you, girl
Things just could not be the same
'Cause I'm as free as a bird now
And this bird you cannot change”

-Free Bird by Lynyrd Skynyrd
