When you think of the essence of americana music, most would think of songs such as Skip Goodbye. After a long on and off again relationship Charlie decides that he either needs to learn to let go of the girl that he loves and "Skip Goodbye" and go straight to not seeing each other, or "Skip Goodbye" and forget the breaking up part and staying together. The folk and bluegrass roots in the song are transparent as Charlie tries to have this conversation with the girl. His emotions are easy to see with lines like " Feel free to change my mind, go ahead and try" Skip Goodbye is his most classic portrayal of americana music in this album that tends to push the boundaries of the genre.

Lyrics

Smells like guilt and your perfume
This is it but I'll see you soon
This will make two goodbyes this week we've lied
Not enough to say that I miss you or who we were supposed to be
Or at least in some dream world that's kind

Do we really need
Oh do we really need
Do we really need one more time do you think you and I
Do you think that we might be alright
Feel free to change my mind
Go ahead and try
Or let's just Skip Goodbye

Living under small town smoke and stars
New gas stations brought new cars
And we were falling free between you and me and summer nights
Doesn't matter what I've got to say you'll turn me off either way
I understand you've got your choice to make

If you just need a peace of mind to pretend it's the last time
And tomorrow we will through it all away
I understand you've got your choice to make
Oh Lorretta I know you'll do the right thing

I miss the days we'd pour the whiskey on the fire
And watch it light up across the sky
You taught me how to act, how to dream, and how to live and I taught you how to get high
How to get high
High
How to get high

Highschool seems so far away but then it seems like yesterday we were skipping class in your broke down car
Chasing dreams that you taught me how to reach, but we were chasing after different stars
After different stars
I hope you found whatever they are
Oh whatever they are
Oh wherever you are

Do we really need
Do we really need
Do we really need one more time do you think that you and I
Do you think that we won't be alright
Feel free to change my mind
Go ahead and try
Let's just Skip Goodbye
