In Reno town for a few dollars down
you can buy yourself a separation.
And say good-bye to the love and the life that we shared together,
sign it away with a stroke of a hotel pen
All of the dreams that we had will be gone forever
I can't believe we're through, I won't give up on you.
How can I stand aside, and watch a good love die?
Don't go down to Reno, stay another night!
One night and you may find, I'll make you change your mind
Don't go down to Reno, stay a little bit longer!
Try to remember the day when the bells were chiming
Picture the clothes that I wore and I know you'll smile
Think of the nights when we knew that our star was climbing
I can't throw that away, I've got to make you stay.
