Seaking Lyr Req: Last Thing on My Mind (Tom Paxton) (40) RE: Lyr Req: 'The last thing on my mind' 17 Feb 07

(G)It's a lesson too (C)late for the (G)learnin'
(C)Made of (G)sand, (D)made of 9G)Sand
In the wink of an (C)eye my soul is (G)turnin'
(C)In your hand, (D)in your hand.

Are you (D)going away with no(C) word of (G)farewell?
Will there (C)be not a (G)trace left (D)behind?
Well, I (G)could have loved you (C)better,
Didn't (G)mean to be (Em)unkind.
You (G)know that was the (D)last thing on my (G)mind.

You've got reasons a-plenty for goin'.
This I know, this I know.
For the weeds have been steadily growin'.
Please don't go, please don't go.


As we walk on, my thoughts are a-tumblin',
Round and round, round and round.
Underneath our feet the subways rumblin',
Underground, underground.


As I lie in my bed in the mornin',
Without you, without you.
Every song in my breast dies a bornin',
Without you, without you.

Lyrics by Tom Paxton
