When I’m Gone (Cups)

When I’m Gone (Cups)


When I first watched this movie, I didn’t pay much attention to this song, but that changed. I soon found a video of Anna Kendrick, the leading actor in Pitch Perfect, doing this type of game with cups. I found it very interesting. I was soon banging cups on tables learning this cup game. I immediately became obsessed with this video:

Here’s a quick overview of the history of this song:

In 1931 the Carter’s Family recorded this song.

In 2009 Lulu and the Lampshades covered this song, receiving many hits.

And recently Pitch Perfect made this song a huge hit all over again.

Lyrics:

I got my ticket for the long way round
Two bottles of whiskey for the way
And I sure would like some sweet company
And I’m leaving tomorrow
What do you say ?

When I’m gone
When I’m gone
You’re gonna miss me when I’m gone
You’re gonna miss me by my hair
You’re gonna miss me everywhere
Oh, you’re gonna miss me when I’m gone

When I’m gone
When I’m gone
You’re gonna miss me when I’m gone
You’re gonna miss me by my walk
You’re gonna miss me by my talk
Oh, you’re gonna miss me when I’m gone

I got my ticket for the long way round
The one with the prettiest of views
It’s got mountains, it’s got rivers
Its got sights to give you shivers
But it sure would be prettier with you

When I’m gone
When I’m gone
You’re gonna miss me when I’m gone
You’re gonna miss me by my walk
You’re gonna miss me by my talk
Oh, you’re gonna miss me when I’m gone

When I’m gone
When I’m gone
You’re gonna miss me when I’m gone
You’re gonna miss me by my hair
You’re gonna miss me everywhere
Oh, you’re sure gonna miss me when I’m gone

When I’m gone
When I’m gone
You’re gonna miss me when I’m gone
You’re gonna miss me by my walk
You’re gonna miss me by my talk
Oh, you’re gonna miss me when I’m gone
